I couldn't find anything that specifically addresses cancer treatments, but AARP says:


The $25 billion reduction would affect the payments that doctors, hospitals and other health care providers receive for treating Medicare patients. Individual benefits would not change and neither would premiums, deductibles or copays. But with so much less money going to providers, the cuts could have major impacts on patient access to health care — such as fewer physicians accepting Medicare patients.


“We’re deeply concerned that the tax proposals being made will very directly affect the ability of Medicare to maintain services, and we do not think it is fair that older Americans who have paid into Medicare their entire working lives get stuck with the bill for a tax overhaul,” says Cristina Martin Firvida, AARP director of financial security.

This subject is all over the place. No specificities anywhere I looked. Susan Collins says she has Mitch McConnell's assurances that seniors won't suffer. She seems to believe him, so that's something I guess.

Read the comments at the bottom of your link and you'll see the level of ideology that DailyKos is pandering to.

Shame on anyone who falls for this garbage. I bet not one person commenting (or spreading this nonsense) has actually researched directly into the actual tax cut proposals, they just prefer to take someone else's word for it.

In any event, the DailyKos article is barely an article, it's just terse opinions without anything backing them up.

Allowing people to die, that's Republican family values!

Life is life. You can try and justify your beliefs as you choose, but killing an unborn child is IMO an example of barbarism! But you can pray at your alter of Progressivness for forgiveness.

So you love someone else’s fetus when they are in the uterus, but not when they are old or sick or poor? Those aren’t values, that’s wanting power over medical choices.

Not the same thing because many Republicans also get abortions.
