Reductions in Medicare in Healthcare Reform?

It has become difficult to wade through the political garbage to figure out what is happening with healthcare reform. Today this headline was on Lexis-Nexis:

WASHINGTON – (AP) Congress' chief budget officer on Tuesday contradicted President Barack Obama's oft-stated claim that seniors wouldn't see their Medicare benefits cut under a health care overhaul. The head of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, Douglas Elmendorf, told senators that seniors in Medicare's managed care plans could see reduced benefits.

Isn't it time the people in Washington figure out what they are doing and stop making things up about what they are doing?

What do you think?
