I have a very close relative who is a nurse. She was constantly screaming that obamacare will provide more tests earlier and that’s what is needed. I don’t ever have any conversations with her so I don’t know what she will think about this. She’ll probably say “BUSH LIED ABOUT WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION!”

There is a breed of full of themselves nurses who've been screaming this for many years. I remember one time my wife, also a nurse, asking one of them, "How will diagnosing more cancer and more heart disease result in lower costs?" The smug response was early stage cancer and heart disease is much cheaper to treat than more advanced stages. I suppose that's true, but you know what's even cheaper than treating early stage heart disease? Death by heart attack from undiagnosed heart disease.

All these full of themselves, preachy, liberal nurses have to change their tunes now. Now they talk about unnecessary tests and cost effectiveness.

I am just one cog in the wheel. My lab had 30 technologists reading slides for early detection of various types of cancer (specimens to include urines, bronchial washes and brushes, cerebrospinal fluids, needle aspirations from various body sites and pap smears). Already we are down to 22 techs now. I cannot imagine the devastation in the rest of the myriad medical laboratory specialties.
