We're in an Election Year, and Joe Biden
Has Decided to Cut Medicare Advantage Benefits

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 4/4/2024 12:46:52 PM

The Biden administration somewhat quietly announced cuts to next year's base payments to Medicare Advantage plans, adding concerns to an already unstable economic environment.According to multiple reports, the administration will be decreasing that base pay by 0.16 percent, which may not seem like much, but it can have a big impact on enrollees. What they're saying: "These policies will put even more pressure on the benefits and premiums of 33 million Medicare Advantage beneficiaries who will be renewing their coverage this fall," said Mike Tuffin, CEO of the insurer trade group AHIP.

Medicare and SS have always been called the "third rail" of politics. For those who don't get the meaning, in electric powered train systems a third, centered, rail is used to carry electricity to the train. The third rail carries 750 volts....about 7 times the voltage of your household outlets. And while your household outlets can put out a quantity of electricity of about 15 or 20 amps, the third rail can put out thousands of amp. So, touching an actual third rail is pretty much instant electrocution. This is where the political term came from. But Joe is grabbing the third rail. Let's hope it helps fry him politically.

No surprise there. Cutting back benefits for Americans is a major aspect of globalist approved "wealth redistribution." This administration has prioritized free medical care for ten million and counting illegal aliens. They are welcome to come to the US for free sex change operations which redistributes benefits away from America's retirees, in order to benefit newly arrived individuals seeking to "become" a gender they can never be.

As soon as my company dumped me into Medicare Advantage this year, I could no longer get the medicine I'd taken for 19 years. Sarah Palin was right...death panels!

This is my second year with an Advantage plan and I have had no problems. I had to have several tests last year with the onset of iron deficiency anemia and everything was covered, including blood transfusion and iron infusions. Of course puddin head will plunder our health care. One of the few things he hasn't touched yet. I detest him with my whole being.

The Obiden administration knows that even Social Security is now longer a political issue. With elections rigged on the scale of 2020. The ongoing and successful effort to take over the House by November. The House of Representatives will give Biden the win, if no one reaches 270, due to 3rd party voting. Trump said it the best, immediately after his first impeachment. “What could we accomplish, if the Democrats used all this time and effort for the good of the American people.” -DJT

Re #4, look at F or G plans, and many providers don't have them, so if you only read the fancy "comprehensive" books fro BC&BS and a few others, you won't know that F or G plans even exist. Our advisor told us that F and G plans have historically had lower rates of increase in the premiums. And for Part D don't make the mistake I did, assuming that ggeyvwere about th e same. The Partd D (prescription plan) I had for several years paid zero on basically everything, including my generic cheap drugs. I went out online and theres a comparison site, you put in your drugsxand itvshows the total annual cost, including the Part D premium. I got a lower premium and they have paid 100% of my generic cheap drugs, no copay.

Biteme is cutting Medicare benefits, yet in Maryland, we're treated to endless BS by demolsut candidates for Congress with commercials featuring seniors telling us Republicans are going to cut Social Security. I remember watching just such commercials back in 1972 with the same BS lie. Some saying seniors will have to eat cat food to survive if Republicans cut SS.

In case some people have not yet caught on, Joe is not politically savvy besides his being a wannabe dictator and a buffoon. Rest assured that the illegal alien invaders will not lose any of their kid glove treatment and five-star benefits. By election time, even Doctor Jill will be having doubts about him.

I have had Medicare Advantage for well over Five years. I love it! It depends on what PLAN you choose when it comes to finding a doctor. I have a PPO plan. It allows me to go to any Doctor I choose (I have never had a Doctor say they do not take that Plan). I do NOT pay a monthly Premium! I have been in the Hospital, had many MRI's and take a fair share of Meds. ALL have been covered. I do have a Co-Pay but it is minimal. Going to the Doc is $35. I will be very unhappy if Biden messes with my United Healthcare Advantage Plan!

American citizens don’t matter to the democrat party. In fact, we are an albatross around the necks of the political class. They believe there is no benefit to securing our benefits. Instead they have a whole other demographic to appeal to and they go all in. It is disgusting the amount of money they throw at illegal aliens while our veterans and seniors are left scratching to make ends meet. Health care is so expensive and the fact that we have critical drug shortages in this country should shame every lawmaker in this land, yet nothing is said about it. We cannot take care of our own but move heaven and earth to take care of criminal illegal aliens because they could be a benefit to the democrat party. Shame on them. They have betrayed us and should pay a very heavy price for that.

In my opinion, articles like this are a main driving factor of the greatest threat to America. Remember Lenin's saying: "The Surest way to Attack the Capitalist State is to Debauch the Currency." I remember when the trouble really got going, in 1965 with Lyin' Lyndon Johnson and the Democ'RATS created the "Great Society" welfare programs. The Federal government has been going deeper and deeper into DEBT ever since, like an irresponsible family member running up the Credit Card bill without a care, as long as THEY don't have to PAY IT OFF! The Federal government is now $34.6 TRILLION dollars in debt. Here, you can check for yourself in real time: link: and going deeper into debt by about another $One TRILLION every 100 days. The Profligate Spending by the Democ'RAT Congress and the HairSniffer's administration is following Lenin's advice, deliberately DESTROYING the value of the Dollar. The government cannot Tax their way out of this. They HAVE to cut spending, but every time that this is even discussed, - and this is NOT a CUT, it is a Decrease in the Rate of Increase- ("plan bids due June 1 could show scaled-back benefits and premium adjustments") the Media goes into a Frenzy, with SCREAMING headlines designed to scare the 'Lo-Fo' voters. A 0.16% Reduction (that's 16/100 of a Penny per each Dollar in benefits) in the amount of Increase is nothing, compared to the amount that general Inflation is reducing American's purchasing power. The Federal government and the Lamestreams tell us that the inflation rate is something like 3% (Three Pennies on each Dollar). They sure are not including the things that I purchase in that calculation. Last May we bought two new tires for the old (418,000 miles) minivan, and they were $97.76 each. Regular price, no special 'sale'. Last night I did a 'reorder' of the EXACT SAME TYPE TIRES to replace the other two tires, and the price LAST NIGHT was $133.99 each! These prices were the base price of the tires, not including taxes or mounting and balancing. Let's see..... $133.99/$97.76 = 1.37, a THIRTY SEVEN PERCENT INCREASE!.... in TEN MONTHS! I remember George W. Bush trying to get Congress to take steps to prevent Social Security going BROKE... and the Congress turned him down FLAT! Every day that corrective action is NOT taken, makes the disaster WORSE! Apparently the politicians are interested ONLY in THEIR OWN POWER, and if the Nation is headed OFF THE CLIFF, they don't care, as long as THEY get to KEEP THEIR POWER...... and the MEDIA is right there to Demonize anyone who tries to prevent the Disaster! OK Boys and Girls (and all you 'It/They/Thems').... what are you going to do when the Debt Bubble POPS... and there is a sudden general panic as people realize that our 'Fiat Currency' (that is, a currency whose value is set by 'fiat', by agreement, but which has NO real backing) has become WORTHLESS? That day is COMING, and perhaps SOONER than people realize!

Brandon has no choice but to cut Medicare for old Boomers so that they can make room for the 10,000,000 illegal aliens that Brandon has imported so far and the countless millions more that he wants to import if he is re-elected. Out with the old, in with the "new commers."

As the nation was captivated by a total eclipse of the sun on Monday, Joe Biden suffered a total eclipse of his shame in Wisconsin. After spending an unfathomable amount of taxpayer money to fly to the battleground state on Air Force One, the president proceeded to bumble and lie his way through a mercifully short speech. In it, he bragged about defying the Supreme Court on student loan forgiveness and introduced a new falsehood about his childhood, the latter being so easily debunkable that I can only assume he's not even trying anymore. Let's kick things off with the following admission, though.

Analysis from the Pew Research Center reveals that as of late last month, almost 1.2 million foreign nationals are eligible or receiving TPS so they can stay in the U.S., secure work permits, and avoid deportation.Since taking office, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has added Afghanistan, Burma, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ukraine, and Venezuela to the list of countries where nationals residing in the U.S. but who do not have any immigration status can qualify for TPS.
