Medicare

Wonder if the AARP will continue to be so quick to endorse the health care legislation going through Congress, now that the Mayo Clinic has decided that it will drop 3,000 Medicare patients at its Glendale, AZ facility.

This is the same Mayo Clinic that Obama uses in his stump speeches to tout the ability to achieve high-quality health care at low costs through efficiency. Interestingly, they are saying it can't be done. They lost almost $1 B (that's billion, with a B) last year on Medicare patients. And yet Obama's health care plan will put more of the country on a Medicare-like program.

Good luck with that whole increasing the number of patients and not decreasing the quality of health care thing, while also not increasing costs.
