Democrats hit GOP on support for Medicare cuts
Sen. Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat, used a national radio address to call on Republicans to back the bill to stave off a 10.6% cut in Medicare payments to doctors. Durbin accused Republicans of putting seniors and military families at risk by siding with President Bush against a measure to prevent the Medicare cuts. Democratic leaders intend to use the an deadline on the cuts to pressure Republicans to switch their votes or be accused of hurting seniors and others.
