House and Senate this morning passed bill to extend current Medicare payments to doctors through February. So no 27.4 percent cut, for now. But will be back with the same old, same old in 2012. More brinkmanship while holding doctors and patients hostage. So . . . Happy New Year!???! With that, I am signing off from blogging until after January 2 and thinking about anything but Congress! Best wishes for holiday peace and joy to all of you.
