Congress will probably slap another temporary fix on the looming Medicare Physician Fee Schedule SGR Cuts by postponing the cuts again through the end of the calendar year, and past the elections as well. There will be no Monday morning political quarterbacks wishing they had punted – because this team, as has every team for the last 5 or 6 years, will punt this issue over to the next term.

The "fix" will be part of an extension of the employment payroll tax extension and the extension of unemployment benefits.

We’ll keep you psoted.
