Any Way You Want To

There is a lot to look forward to if the health care bill gets passed.

"One of the things that concerns the legal minds of this country is that any bill that contains arbitrary language can be interpreted after it's passed any way they want to. And in this bill, virtually every page gives arbitrary powers to the Secretary of Health and Human Services."

Blaylock warned that under the House bill, hospital readmissions will be very restricted.

"One of the things they targeted to save money was to punish hospitals and physicians if they readmit a patient within a month of them being treated in an emergency room," he said.

"The effect of that is going to be that doctors are not going to want to treat these patients, hospitals are not going to want to treat these patients. It's going to cost hospitals a considerable amount of money as well as the physicians in fines if a patient comes back readmitted.

"Now the people who are going to be readmitted are people with chronic illnesses, the elderly, the disabled. Those are the people who are going to have complications occur within that month period. And why should hospitals and physicians be punished for that?
And if there is an error the first time around? The people who made the error will not be fixing it. Some one else will. So will error prone facilities get run out of business? Of course not. They are a profit center for those fixing their mistakes.

Wisely the politicians in charge of this debacle will start collecting taxes as soon as it passes and will only be implementing the changes a few years after they start collecting taxes. Some time after the 2012 election. The crooks in charge of ramming this through must know how bad it is. Which just goes to show what a vile political class the American people have elected.
