Senate acts to block doctors' Medicare payment cut

Wall Street Journal, June 21, 2010

U.S. Senate Democrats and Republicans have reached agreement to postpone by six months scheduled cuts in Medicare payments to doctors. The Senate adopted the measure by voice vote shortly after Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., NV), and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., KY) announced the deal. It now falls to the House to take up the Senate-passed Medicare fix, the Wall Street Journal reports.
