Coalition Urges SupComm To Reform Medicare Spending, Not Cut

October 18, 2011
In yet another example of groups trying sway the Super Committee, a coalition of advocacy organizations has launched a website and been buying ads in political newspapers urging lawmakers to "fight fraud first" before it makes cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.

The coalition, which includes AARP and the National Association for Uniformed Services, says that 10 percent of Medicare and Medicaid spending is lost to abuse, fraud or waste and that the Super Committee should plug that hole before making cuts.

"It has to be stopped before you start taking money away from the program," former Sen. John Breaux (D-La.) said in a conference call Tuesday. Breaux chaired the National Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare when he was in the Senate.

The group did not release the cost of the ad buy. The ads ran in Roll Call, Congressional Quarterly and NJ Daily last week and today.
