Sequester Cuts Hit Elderly Cancer Patients

They were supposed to save money, but an unintended side effect of federal budget cuts has prevented that, CBS New York station WCBS-TV reports.

The most vulnerable Americans, elderly cancer patients, are being turned away from community clinics.

They're being denied chemotherapy because doctors said they can't afford to absorb steep Medicare cuts for chemotherapy drugs.

This is NOT because of the sequester, this is purely because of Obamacare!

Medicare cut payments 2% because of the sequester. There is nothing steep about 2%, it bull. Anything to screw us common folk.
