As Americans scrambled ahead of the July Fourth holiday weekend on Thursday afternoon, the Department of Health and Human Services released 1,296 pages of new regulations dealing with payment rates to doctors and hospitals.
The timing of the news release is part of a long pattern for President Obama's administration, which has often used holidays as an opportunity to dump dense regulatory changes when most reporters and Americans are focused on their holiday plans.

Last year, the Obama administration used the days surrounding the July 4th holiday as an opening to announce a delay to the employer mandate and to disclose the fact that the exchanges would operate on the honor system, doling out benefits without properly verifying information provided by applicants.

obama’s fubar govt. they’re just throwing crap against the wall and going with whatever sticks.
They know damn well what they are doing. They are, and have been acting extra-Constitutionally for some time now.
They don’t care if people are upset. It’s the price of doing business for them.

My poor Doc.
No wonder he can’t see me. Busy reading the 1296 pages. Hope he doesn’t have a stroke. I need him.

My oldest brother is one of the top M.D.’s in his field in the country. He’s 71 and retiring. He wanted to work a few more years but said to hell with it and sold his practice.
pay more gringos...
We have to cover the cost of the “children”
Even though many will suffer, I hope more docs retire early rather than participate in this medi-rape by the commie minions of nobamacare.
Who are we to say how another person should celebrate the founding of our country?
Just so happens that Ø and his regime enjoy this way of respecting the founding of our limited government Republic. This is how they show respect and honor to the framers.
The practice of moral equivalence means Ø experiences joy and holiday spirit of Independence Day by issuing new regulations... as much as we can expect from the Community Organizer!
The GOP should be crowing over this. Obama has ONE crowning achievement - Obamacare, and he releases this so as to avoid anyone’s notice. One would think the Generalissimo would be proud of his legislative offspring.
I know that my brother would agree with you. I do. You are absolutely right.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM
Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat
We can no longer afford HHS. We’re broke. Adios, socialist scumbags.
We’re all felons now.
Just a matter of time before we meet behind bars.
