Meet Mort Allitee, IPAB Victim
Obama plans to use his Independent Payments Advisory Board (IPAB) to take $716 billion out of Medicare over ten years and spend that money on new ObamaCare entitlements. IPAB is a board of 15 unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats whose job will be to control the rapid growth in Medicare spending through dramatic cuts to doctors and hospitals. IPAB’s government-imposed budget caps will cause shortages of health care goods and services. The longer wait times that result will cause negative medical outcomes for some of the most vulnerable members of society.
