CBO: Medicare cost-cutting programs haven't worked
Programs designed to cut Medicare spending and improve the quality of healthcare have mostly failed, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

But 20 years of trying to shift the program in that direction have yielded little to no progress, CBO said Wednesday.
