Impact of ObamaCare’s raid on Medicare

During a Ways and Means Health Subcommittee hearing, Congressman Sam Johnson (R-TX) questioned the witnesses on the impact of ObamaCare’s $716 billion raid on Medicare, particularly the $300 billion cut to the Medicare Advantage (MA) program. MA is chosen by 30 percent of all seniors, especially low-income and minority seniors and those with chronic health conditions. Johnson represents a majority of Texas’ Collin County where over 24 percent of Medicare beneficiaries have opted out of traditional fee-for-service Medicare and enrolled in an MA plan.
