Stop the Medicare Meltdown is a nationwide movement to save Medicare, made much worse by the Obamacare bill. Doctors payments are already extremely low and the plan is to cut them more each year.
The Texas Medical Association has been a strong advocate of seniors, the disabled and military patients.
