Medicare, Social Security and the Congressional Deficit Reduction Plan
Question: What are the proposals Congress is making to cut Medicare and Social Security?
Answer: Congress is looking at cuts in Medicare and Social Security as part of the deficit reduction plan. Details are veiled but basically involve greater cost sharing on the part of you, the beneficiary. Cost sharing is a popular concept in insurance that simply means you pay more out of your pocket for your care.
