To the editor:
In response to the claims that (U.S. Rep.) Bill Owens has cut Medicare, I thought a non-partisan view should be represented. Sources such as the American Action Network and "Theycutyourtaxes" are organizations with huge budgets funded by right-wing politicians. I don't adhere to left- or right-wing politics; I support non-partisan efforts to convey the truth.
Please consider the following non-partisan review of the claim that new health care legislation cuts Medicare:
"But the implication that the health care law takes away Medicare benefits is misleading. Extra benefits under Medicare Advantage plans are likely to be reduced, but the law actually expands traditional Medicare benefits, such as adding more prescription drug coverage."
