ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the proposed Medicare and Medicaid spending cuts of the U.S. President George W. Bush administration for 2009. The Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care criticized the fiscal budget, which would slash Medicare payments to nursing homes by nearly $1 billion and $17 billion over five years. Meanwhile, the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) commented that the spending plan offers no funding for preventive health services.
