The Obama administration is delaying release of the annual report on Social Security and Medicare!


The Obama administration is delaying release of the annual report on the financial health of Social Security and Medicare so that the new report can reflect the impact of the recently passed health care overhaul.

An administration official told The Associated Press that this year's trustees report will be delayed until June 30, three months later than it usually comes out.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity before the formal announcement, said Monday that the delay will allow the government to determine the impact of the massive overhaul of health care that President Barack Obama just signed into law.

Mightn't it have been nice for them to determine the impact of

the bill on Social Security and Medicare BEFORE they passed it into law?
