Would you call this rationing?
California ends subsidy for mammograms to low-income women under 50 .
The eligibility age for state-subsidized breast cancer screening has been raised from 40 to 50 by the California Health and Human Services Agency, which will also temporarily stop enrollment in the breast cancer screening program.
If tobacco taxes aren't fairing well in Cali... How is SCHIP doing?? Any other government created programs based on rosy revenue projections out there? Are they being met?

“This is an example of what happens when the government’s role in healthcare decisions grows and the role of doctors and patients diminishes. With more government involvement cutting costs becomes paramount over quality of care. This situation underscores what is so critically wrong with the health reform legislation making its way through Congress now. It increases the role of government in our healthcare which is a recipe for higher taxes and lower quality of care. Instead, Carly believes any reform to our healthcare system should be focused on market-based reforms that prioritize quality of care and increasing access and choice" Julie Soderlund, Deputy Campaign Manager for Communications for Carly Fiorina, Running for Senate in CA and Breast Cancer survivor.

OMG, some of you are so dense. No, she is not saying the obamacare is responsible for CA's problems. She is suggesting that we closely look at what happened to CA so that the rest of the country won't have to go through the same thing as CA. I swear, some of you can pick out the dumbest things from thin air, yet you can't even see a simple analogy. And they say that NCLB is failing us. *sarcasm*.
