Southern Govs. send Medicare complaints to Obama

New at ten, Governor Rick Scott was joined by two other southern governors in writing a complaint to President Obama about the new Medicare advantage payments.

Texas Governor, Rick Perry, and Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal, joined Scott in signing a letter that says the increasing payments are not a good thing for seniors.
The health care overhaul is blamed for the changes.
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services reported earlier this month that the 2015 payments should increase less than one percent overall.
The Governors say the increase is nothing more than political theatre.
