No­body wants spend­ing cuts

Modern Healthcare - - OPINIONS LETTERS -

Re: “AAMC’S Kirch warns on IPPS cuts,” (Mod­ern­health­, April 26): The AAMC joins the ranks of ev­ery other in­ter­est group in protest­ing bud­get cuts. I won­der if there is any in­ter­est group that isn’t protest­ing bud­get cuts? Mean­while, the U.S. con­tin­ues to plunge deeper into debt. Bank­ruptcy and de­fault can be averted only with mas­sive cuts to fed­eral spend­ing. Even a 100% con­fis­ca­tory tax rate would not solve our debt cri­sis. Just as with per­sonal bank­ruptcy, the warn­ing signs go un­heeded un­til it is too late. Does any­one speak Greek?
