IPAB=Death Panel?

IPAB stands for Independent Payment Advisory Board. The board of 15 who will decide if you get the medicine you need or how much the government should pay Drs and hospitals who treat medicare patients (as well as anyone else). These are the people who will decide if the drugs we have worked for so many years to find cures for or retard disease (not to mention spent billions on) are worth all that time and money.

This panel will not be sending out personal death notices but they will be the cause of some deaths. is there a difference?
Should 15 people of Obamas choice be in charge of your (or anyones)health and well being, period?

  • Or maybe she is still here under a new name? I know, it's never happened before, but there is always a first for everything. And a second and a third. Come to think of it, we know of a few people that have reinvented themselves a few times.

  • Oh quinn, I think we know she is. When the fight gets uphill, the new identities come out~ wouldn't want all those past remorseful statements to be brought back up

  • Hmmmm so Sarah Palin was right? Who would have thought that and will anyone ever admit it?

    Doesn't surprise me a bit! There is no way you can provide healthcare for everyone without rationing it somehow. People can say it's possible a trillion times and it doesn't it make it so or more believable!

  • And let me reread my crystal ball outlook from the year old post....The rationers will be males appointed by Obama and Women's Healthcare will be the first to be rationed starting with Mammograms and Pap Smears. !!!

  • On second thought maybe Sriver got the boot for violating TOS, seems more likely.
