Again they let Him speak and the facts are a bit different.

The fact that HHS prohibited the panel from considering the cost effectiveness of the mandate it developed contradicts President Obama’s declaration at the White House last Friday that his administration had adopted the panel’s recommendations precisely because they will “make the overall cost of health care lower”
Not to mention the fact that overall insurance rates that we pay will be higher !!!

One economist who served on the panel, meanwhile, suggested in a dissenting opinion that the panel’s recommendations in fact might not be cost effective and that the panel’s process for arriving at its recommendations “tended to result in a mix of objective and subjective determinations filtered through a lens of advocacy.”
In other words, get the study done, but don't ask questions !

Despite the fact that this scientifically panel charged with coming up with the recommended preventive services had been expressly forbidden from looking at their cost effectiveness, President Obama declared that his administration had moved forward with the recommendations precisely because of their cost effectiveness.
The "cost effectiveness" was directed at the insurance companies, not the patients !!

story and video
( - There would be no consideration of cost effectiveness.

The article outlines and exposes how the HHS panel was basically ineffective in making any good recommendations

What will The Truth Team say now ?

It is nothing but propaganda for the insurance companies.

The insurance companies are the reason medical costs are so extremely high.

They drive up costs with malpractice insurance, and then drive up health care insurance.

The fed isn't doing nearly enough to put the insurance dog on a leash.
