Now that's a scream

Democrat Howard Dean admits that Sarah Palin was right, they are death panels;
One major problem is the so-called Independent Payment Advisory Board. The IPAB is essentially a health-care rationing body. By setting doctor reimbursement rates for Medicare and determining which procedures and drugs will be covered and at what price, the IPAB will be able to stop certain treatments its members do not favor by simply setting rates to levels where no doctor or hospital will perform them.
Be able to stop certain treatments its members do not favor.


  1. This is the fault of capitalism. If the IPAB lowers the rates, then the greedy capitalists stop delivering services. If the capitalists had any morality, they would work for next to nothing.

    Cuba has shown the way. Everyone has medical care, and indeed the providers work for next to nothing. Morality is ascendant.

  2. Mr. Sullivan,
    Your comment system has the best captchas on the web. They are just at the limit of my ability to decypher. And that, after cycling a few times to find one that is possible at all.

  3. I have the same problem. They should be called 'gotchas'.

  4. About the gotchas. My mistake. Blogger is responsible. We are all subject to the available technology.
