In Our Own Little Corner:
What in the world are federal taxpayer dollars doing in New England for health prevention??? Sorry, but I don’t trust ANYTHING about the “AFFORDABLE Health Care Bill! For information on this, go to: http://winchester.patch.com/articles/us-surgeon-general-visits-somerville-touts-prevention
Outside the Corner:
Michelle Malkin’s Human Events article on this disaster of a bill is an “eye-opener” to say the least! Last week, the House got rid of the IPAB’s (“Death Panels” as Palin rightly named them) with a few Dems “crossing over” in agreement, but think again if you think this will sail through the Senate—and the mainstream media says the “HOUSE can’t get anything done! PLEASE CONTACT Senators Brown and Kerry about this!
Here is Michelle Malkin’s article:
The ObamaCare hydra by Michelle Malkin 03/23/2012
The Hydra was a mythical swamp beast whose multiple heads grew back after being severed. Obamacare is a real Washington monster whose countless hidden bureaucracies keep sprouting forth even after they’re rooted out. As soon as combatants lop off one of the law’s unconstitutional agencies, another takes its place.
On Thursday, as the behemoth federal health care law marked its second anniversary, House Republicans repealed the infamous Independent Payment Advisory Board. The mother of all death panels, IPAB would have unprecedented authority over health care spending through a rogue board of 15 Medicare spending czars. The House repeal has a snowball’s chance in hell of surviving the Senate. But IPAB’s legality is being challenged in federal court by the conservative Arizona-based Goldwater Institute. And the more the public knows about these freedom-usurping, taxpayer-soaking institutions buried in the health care law the less they like it.
READ THE REST HERE, but it concludes with THIS:
It’s not just physicians who need to pay attention. Every taxpayer has a stake. At the end of the month, this shadowy agency will start doling out $1 billion in grants to payment experiment groups and data-tracking system builders. Sounds like yet another pipeline for political payoffs and Chicago-style boodle that will result in less patient autonomy, fewer health care choices, more government intrusion and lower-quality care.
Final diagnosis: The Obamacare beast won’t die until it’s eradicated completely, root and branch.
