Have you noticed something odd about health care testing lately?

It seems the more the govt wants to push this govt run healthcare program the more stories come out against all sorts of health testing. First mammograms are considered un needed. And then today all of a sudden CAT scans cause cancer. Do any of you find it odd that these things are becoming stories when they are trying to pass a health care bill that would limit doctor's tests on people?

  • Not a bit odd. There WILL be rationing. There is no way around it. But sounds like they will get a skeleton of what they want.

  • If you have money, you will be able to continue getting the care you need/require- SAME AS UNDER THE CURRENT SYSTEM!

  • isteract the current system won't be much different if what is on the table passes. No reform in it.

  • If it is business as usual, then how can they really call it reform? Isn't that just an expensive title? What this bill has become is one big stinking pile of dung. I could hardly believe my ears when I heard what Howard Dean said and I actually agreed with him.


    I think smaller less expensive reforms that are actually geared to help people that need help should be worked on. Something that doesn't cost Americans trillions of dollars. Trillions we already don't have.

  • Who is anti-government? Some of us are just acknowledging a likely series of events. And I am still curious how this is considered reform when the only thing that changes is that premiums will go up and you will be required to have a health policy or face a fine for not having one. That's reform?
