Medicare is facing cuts as Congress tries to balance our national budget, but where does Medicare's money actually go? Does Medicare pay enough to cover the cost of patient care, or do doctors lose money when they treat Medicare patients? How will Medicare change under President Obama's health care plan? What's at stake during the Senate Budget Committee's negotiations? We'll look at Medicare this Thursday on Weekday.
