Action Alert: Doc Fix will Cost America $500 Billion
Doc Fix will Cost America $500 Billion
A report released by the Congressional Budget Office confirms the doc fix deal negotiated by Speaker Boehner and Nancy Pelosi is a budget buster. It could drive America $500 billion further into debt.
It’s irresponsible, unsustainable, and worse than we originally thought.
Even President Obama has publicly said he’s ready to sign this so-called doc fix. If Barack Obama is eager to sign it and Nancy Pelosi has blessed it, you know it can’t be good.
The House is scheduled to vote on the Doc Fix deal today – and many lawmakers are still on the fence.
Conservatives have a principled plan that solves the problems of Medicare. But Boehner and Pelosi are trying to take the easy way out: adding hundreds of billions to our nation’s already massive debt.
