Today, your medical care is between you and your Doc, and sometimes with an insurance company. Either a straight line, or a simple triangle.
Mr. Brady at New Majority plots the organizational chart of the Dem plan. The extent of the proposed bureaucracy is indeed baffling, if not insane. Who is in charge? Certainly not you, the paying patient (because you won't be paying: your Doc will be working for the government), and definitely not your Doctor:
Insty reports that the bill essentially eliminates Medicare:
ENDING MEDICARE? “Obama’s health care proposal is, in effect, the repeal of the Medicare program as we know it. The elderly will go from being the group with the most access to free medical care to the one with the least access.” So why aren’t we hearing more about this? “The interest groups that usually speak up for the elderly, particularly AARP, are in Obama’s pocket, hoping to profit from his program by becoming one of its vendors. Just as they backed Bush’s prescription drug plan because they anticipating profiting from it, so they are now helping Obama gut the medical care of their constituents.”
Who can understand all this crap?

I dislike being pressed to make any financial decision "right now" because I feel I'm being swindled. I feel that same way about the health care proposal now before the Congress. What I read and see makes me...
