Americans are but a whisper of taking a Sebelius/Obama Medicare hosing. Did you know that doctors receive Medicare compensation based on volume not quality of care? Well the Obama/Sebelius tag team is at it again, and both Republicans and Democrats have now ganged up to insure that Obama and Sebelius will actually be able to dictate your treatment by doctors. And with the insurance plans these folk are now offering, many of you will not be able to choose your own doctor, will have to wait and wait some more, and will not find coverage for vital prescription drugs.
Obamacare was jammed down the throats of Americans with a package of unconstitutional boldface lies orchestrated by the Obama team and spoon fed to glassy eyed Americans by the unapologetic and stupefying Nancy Pelosi. Our medical system is being wrecked based on lies and Marxist thought. When are the politicians in Washington going to wake up and call for an immediate emergency vote for the full repeal of O’Care? Americans must call for such a vote now! Scott Gottlieb has the details in The Wall Street Journal:
Imagine if a provision in ObamaCare allowed Health and Human Services SecretaryKathleen Sebelius to dictate directly to doctors which services they could and could not provide their patients—what individual tests they could conduct, which treatments they could offer, and medicines they could prescribe.
Americans would be outraged.
Yet some Republicans on Capitol Hill are about to help Democrats pass such a provision for Medicare patients. The Senate Finance Committee is set to vote on permanent “doc-fix” legislation Thursday that grants the federal government broad new authority to determine “applicable appropriate use criteria” for the full range of outpatient medical services delivered to seniors. Similar legislative language is included in bipartisan draft legislation that is being marked up Thursday in the HouseWays and Means Committee.
The bill is part of a larger effort to change the way Medicare pays doctors. Each year since 2002, Congress has passed temporary “doc-fix” legislation to cover billions of dollars of shortfalls in Medicare payments. The provisions in the bill apply to advanced radiology imaging tools like CT scans and MRIs. But language tucked into the legislation enables “the Secretary” of HHS to exert the same controls over the vast array of outpatient medical care for seniors.
