"...the Medicare commission would come to function much like the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, which rations care in England."

"So far, the commission has banned knee arthroscopy for osteoarthritis, discography for chronic back pain, and implantable infusion pumps for pain not related to cancer. This year, it is targeting such frivolous luxuries as knee replacements, spinal cord stimulation, a specialized autism therapy and MRIs of the abdomen, pelvis or breasts for cancer. It will also rule on routine ultrasounds for pregnancy, which have a "high" efficacy but also a "high" cost."

The Health Care Rationing Commission - WSJ.com

Seniors beware, Remember "treatment" is not the same as "benefits." So when they tell you your benefits won't change, that may be technically accurate, but the treatment you get could be vastly different from what you are accustomed to and it will come down to cost. And if you look at the timetable, you'll notice that the people in office when this thing passes will not be the same people in office when you feel the impact so it's no sweat off their backs.

hey Laura C..How much money you got??

So, extra costs for medical wouldn't matter to much to you? Why are you so concerned about this? When this would help so many people in your area. Why would you say that you don't care? I guess you are very well taken care of? So you make 200,000. Why don't you admit it?

Seniors...don't pay any attention to this nutjob...she is for private money, and most likely she is running a company privately! She will make you feel like you have no choice. She is an exstortionist. She is trying to secure her own investment.

But Obama and the left said there is no such thing.

Lets watch them and see if they lied once again.

Gee, a fear-mongering opinion piece full of 'wouldas' and 'ifs' and 'possibles', who would've expected THAT from the right?

After the first paragraph anyone can see it's designed to shake up the old chickens in their hen houses and get them scared the sky is falling!!

Let me order ten or so copies to line the bird cage with, about the best use for this particular article.

Didn't you start another fear-mongering conspiracy theory thread about this same topic just last week?

You are sadly misinformed and completely wrong. Obama's plan will BK the nation, and all of us will be on foodstamps, not just you...!
There is a better way, but our socialist leader wants it his way...
three more years and we vote the coward out of office...

GW Bush put America in a coffin but it will Obama who closes the lid.

One fact no one can deny; there are not enough doctors to meet current needs and if a national healthcare plan is enacted getting a doctor's appointment will be an annual event if we are lucky.
Not to mention how many more doctors will leave private practice for more lucrative opportunities.

I firmly believe that Obamacare is actually a back door attack on Social Security.
