Obama Admin. breaks Medicare law Again

The Obama administration has failed to provide a plan to Congress that will  fix the Medicare funding imbalance as is required by law.  Obama has done this each of his four years in Office.

Obama ignoring laws has become part of his legacy as he missed a deadline this week to submit his budget the first week of February as well.

medicareSenate Republicans are sending a letter Monday to the White House budget office arguing that President Obama’s nominee to be treasury secretary, Jacob “Jack” Lew, was complicit in breaking a Medicare budget law.

The letter comes the same day that Mr. Obama officially missed another deadline in the budget law by failing to submit his blueprint on the first Monday in February. The president has only met that deadline once in his tenure.

On the Medicare funding issue, federal law requires that if the program’s funding becomes imbalanced, its trustees are required to issue a warning, and the president is required to send Congress a plan to repair the finances.
