What U think?Beginning in 2014, IPAB would consist of 15 unelected technocrats whose recommendations for reducing Medicare costs must be enacted by Congress by Aug. 15 of each year. If Congress does not enact them, or other measures achieving the same level of cost containment, IPAB’s proposals automatically are transformed from recommendations into law. Without being approved by Congress. Without being signed by the president. These facts refute Obama’s Denver assurance that IPAB “can’t make decisions about what treatments are given.” It can and will by controlling payments to doctors and hospitals. Hence the emptiness of Obamacare’s language that IPAB’s proposals “shall not include any recommendation to ration health care.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/george-f-will-romneys...... Seems likely health care will be rationed at the expense of the poor and some of the middle classAn 85 year old poor person that is 200+ pounds overweight may not get "free" very expensive medical procedures - A fat rich 85 year old can pay for very expesive medical procedures 10-4
