If the Pubbies had any brains at all....they would make a wreath of this to hang around the neck of every opponent in the coming Senate and House races.
How can one Congress, without amending the Constitution, bar a future Congress from passing any law that is constitutional, INCLUDING repeal of IPAB at any time, before or after 2017?
“Urologists Concerned About “key aspects” of Law”
Really? Are they “pissed” off? They should embrace their tyranny. Its apparently fashionable these days.
“Urologists Pi$$ed Off about Obamacare”
It was too easy...
I have a urologist story. Not too long ago I attended a reception for diplomats and key business leaders from an Asian nation we have strong ties to. One of the local community leaders who came from that nation decades ago also attended. Turns out he’s one of the most important urologists in a nearby city. After the dinner and bowing had all died down we were sitting around socializing and he pulls out an old fashioned black doctors’ bag that you would think had standard doctors’ tools. Instead it’s jammed full with sample packages of Cialis. The foreigners were all bowing and thanking the guy profusely. It was surreal. There we are, about a dozen diplomats, elected officials and political staffers all dressed in our best suits and ties, sitting in a downtown restaurant, each with a package of erectile dysfunction medication on the table next to our drinks.
We are already seeing the results of government directed treatments. Look at the recent “recommendations” of government bean counters about the frequency of PSA testing. The government “experts” looking at statistical data tell us that annual PSA testing makes no “statistical difference” in outcome and leads to too many “expensive” tests. Further many prostate cancers according to these “studies” do not need to be treated especially in older males. Under Obamacare these “recommendations” will become enforceable regulations that will force physicians into treatment options not in the best interest of their patients. Under Obamacare many older men will get diagnosed with prostate cancer far later and then be denied any treatment because of their age.
“While we strongly advocate the provision of care for the millions of uninsured Americans who will benefit from the legislation...”
WHO specifically is going without essential medical care because they are “uninsured”?
I would add that the vast majority of “uninsured” are in that state by CHOICE.
