Medicare is financed by a 2.9 percent payroll tax on workers split between employees and employers and a $43.80-a-month premium paid by beneficiaries. Gingrich, who was traveling in London, could not be reached for comment, but House Ways and Means Committee spokesman Ari Fleischer said that "if the president feels an obligation to appoint commissioners who are going to recommend tax increases, that's his business. We'll work with whomever he appoints in a bipartisan fashion, but Republicans feel the answer is not to continue to raise taxes on work By Larry Lipman Palm Beach Post Washington Bureau '-WASHINGTON President Clinton on Tuesday criticized Rouse Speaker Newt Gingrich's insistence that his appointees to a Nfedicare reform commission pledge not to recommend a tax increase.

La. judge denies class action in implant cases A i - , ! 1 ' ' A ! The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS Louisiana's breast implant case was changed from a class action Tuesday, dashing the hopes of 1,800 women to collect damages from Dow Chemical Co. The decision by a state judge narrows the scope of the case to the eight women who originally sued, contending their silicone breast implants caused a variety of health problems. In August, a jury agreed with the women that Dow Chemical Co. plotted to hide health dangers of silicone. Trial was set to resume early next year to determine damages. In Tuesday's ruling, Judge Yada Magee said the cases of the 1,800 women were too dissimilar to group them all in one lawsuit. The women had received various types of implants, at different times, and had different diseases. Since the implants were put in over a 30-year period, different legal standards also had to be used for each plaintiff, the judge wrote. The women who either live in or had their implant operations in Louisiana say they have aches, pains, fatigue and other problems caused by an immune system reaction to silicone from their implants. Implant makers and Dow Chemical say repeated medical studies have not found any relationship between the illnesses and the implants. Dow Chemical owns half of Dow Corning, one of the biggest manufacturers. w unrtodmedta com per room Steam Carpet Cleaning, Reg. $25. Your Best Value! Clean 6 areas for$69, Reg. $130.
