Did Tom Coburn Pull The Plug On Grandma’s Social Security?
Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma stood in the way of a bill that would have stopped seniors from getting reductions in Social Security payments next year.
Coburn stood in the way of unanimous consent to a House bill setting 2010 Medicare premiums at 2009 levels. As the National Journal reports (sub. req.), Coburn’s move means “seniors are facing uncertainty over Medicare costs next year” and that “would see a net reduction in their Social Security benefits.”Click here for reuse options!
