how has congressional agenda changed over time in regards to your selected policy medicare topic

Please see attached document for assignment details.

I would like my paper to discuss Medicare. The assignment instructions mention, “For the purposes of this project, you’ll need to pull data from at least two different time periods to show any shifts in trends/attention.”

I think an easy topic would be From 1997-2007 Congress focused on Medicare as part of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997.

  • Balanced Budget Act (BBA) of 1997 will result in the most significant savings to Medicare in its 31-year history—$393.8 billion over 10 years. The Medicare reforms contributed significantly to the goal of a balanced budget; in fact, changes to the program account for 73 percent of total savings.

Please let me know what you think of this topic. I am open to changing the topic!
