Tell President Obama and Congress to Take Medicare Means Testing Off the Table!
President Obama recently released his budget, and one glaring problem is the inclusion of proposals that shift higher health care costs to people with Medicare. One of these proposals would means test Medicare premiums.
Means testing undermines the value of Medicare and weakens the integrity of the program. Unfortunately, means testing already exists within Medicare for individuals making $85,000 per year or higher. Extending this practice to people with more modest incomes will hurt middle class seniors and people with disabilities who are already struggling to keep up with rising health care costs.
Please join the Medicare Rights Center and Social Security Works today in calling on President Obama and Congress to reject Medicare means testing!
