Cuts to cancer clinics puts pressure on Obama administration
The Obama administration is about to face a deluge of intense, bipartisan pressure to reverse Medicare cuts that are threatening cancer patients' access to treatment. About 50 congressional offices, from both parties, have already offered to lobby the administration over cuts to cancer treatment clinics. The cuts, first reported by The Washington Post, were imposed this week as part of the automatic spending reductions known as sequestration. "What you would hope is this would sort of wake up the administration — that at least the administration would step back and see what they're really doing," said Ted Okon, director of the Community Oncology Alliance.
