Sequester Ending Cancer Treatment a Cruel Joke

On April Fool’s Day this year reductions in Medicare payments for cancer drug treatments resulted in thousands of cancer patients being turned away from cancer clinics because it was too costly to administer the expensive drugs.
No fooling.
Citing a 5 percent enforced reduction in drug payments, this effectively meant a 33 percent decrease in clinic profits, meaning that many clinics would go out of business in 6 months.
I remember when the Teapublicans were whining and complaining about the Death Panels that Obamacare was going to institute. Well, Teapublicans, guess what. You got your wish. We are now living in Libertarian Heaven where your taxes didn’t rise and grandma is going to die of her cancer because you guys don’t want to pay for her cancer drugs.
Have a nice day.
