Medicine By Bureaucracy
IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE I'VE WRITTEN, YOU HAVE TO READ THIS:
Do you or anyone you know need medical care?
Perhaps your parents or grandparents?
Do you want some bureaucrap in D.C. tracking your medical records and DECIDING IF THE CARE YOU NEED IS COST EFFECTIVE?!?!?
For those of you who need a translation:
Say you're a retiree, and a smoker - or former smoker - and now in need of an expensive procedure to improve your standard of living.
Do you want some damned paper-pusher consulting an actuarial table, running some numbers, then stamping a big red "DENIED" on your claim form and sending your ass home to die BECAUSE IT WOULDN'T BE WORTH THE "GOVERNMENT'S" MONEY?
Welcome to a hidden little authorization to create the "National Coordinator of Health Information Technology", tucked away in the obscenely mislabeled "stimulus" obamanation.
...see that number in the previous post?
Ya find the time, yet?
