Default Seniors getting Screwed.

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...d=aLzfDxfbwhzs

Daschle says health-care reform “will not be pain free.” Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them. That means the elderly will bear the brunt.

Medicare now pays for treatments deemed safe and effective. The stimulus bill would change that and apply a cost- effectiveness standard set by the Federal Council (464).

Seniors aren't the only ones. Looks like they want to add a shit ton of more red tape when it comes to the health care of anybody and everybody. This is just more micro-management from the feds and it needs to stop. I think I'll go with what my doctor says is best for me, not what Tom Fucking Daschle thinks is best.

Better go with it as long as you can... Tom has other plans for all of us.

I can safely say that socialized health care does not work well. and its fucking expensive on the taxes.

take myself for example. ive been waiting 6 months for a simple hernia operation. and 3 Years for my Gaul bladder operation. i will finnaly get both at the end of this month.

now. if i lived in the states with a decent insurance plan. the wait is 2 weeks.

My boss was called at work today by his doctor and his doctor told him to report to the emergency room cuz his blood tests came back with something the doctor didn't like. I dont know what that was.

Now. you would think that being told to show up for a Emergency CT scan which takes all of 5 mins. it would take what? half a hour a hour? 2? how about 10 hours. oh yah get this part their ct scan said that my boss is a alcoholic. Now. I work with my boss all day every day. he doesn't drink anything cept for 1 beer at night. and even then its not every night.

take what you will from our my description of our socialized medicine.
