This is inevitable because Statist like Obama and the Democrats feel they have to protect the State from the Elderly. They have to stop so many people
from growing old and collecting benefits.
What they need to do is change S.S. and Medicare. They don't have to ration healthcare in order to save these entitlement programs. It's easy to
ration healthcare if you control reimbursement rates.
For instance, I had a friend go to the Doctor with a headache that he had for over a week. The Doctors did all kind of test from Blood Work to Cat
scans. They found a tumor and they caught it early.
Under Obamacare this will not happen. This is because Obama thinks Doctor's are giving out too much healthcare. He talked about all of these Doctors
that are taking out tonsils for no reason. That's just silly. Doctors have to do these test to rule things out. They are not psychic. I bet when
Obama's family goes to the Doctor he doesn't want the test reduced.
So the way you control and ration out healthcare through reimbursement rates is say if you do to many test for that guys headache, you will not be
reimbursed if he doesn't have a tumor. If you do bloodwork and give him a moltrin, then you will be reimbursed.
So the Doctors will avoid giving out healthcare because this board in Washington has said you can only give out so much healthcare for this problem.
This is how they will try to control healthcare costs.
