First Step in Rationing Healthcare:

Have an unkown, quasi-anonymous / quasi-official "U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality)" publish recommendations for a reduction in routine breast cancer examinations.

http://www.time.com/time/health/arti...rss-topstories


What I'm reading into this, is that this will lower healthcare costs related to the diagnosis of breast cancer. It will also lower treatment costs, since cancer will be found in later, more aggressive stages - resulting in more unavoidable deaths.

Maybe this is my tinfoil hat speaking, but I have red alarms going off over here...

Same here. Odd how the main stream health care organizations have been adamant about being tested early for over 30 years, and now suddenly, it isn't anything to worry about.

Just a few months ago, they released the same sort of bullshit about prostate cancer, too. They're just greasing us up for shitty preventative care. None of those "proposed" plans will cover any of this preventative stuff, so just get ready.

This is a bunch of bull-shit I think they are smoking obamas bong up there. Tell this shit to the women that found cancer at 35 or 38 and the only reason they are alive is because of early detection.

You can't fix stupid, but you can vote it out.

I'm not surprised one bit.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

I heard about it in passing on the news as I was flipping through channels. I think I'll stick with what the American Cancer Society has to say about it, I think they're a bit more trustworthy than the government.

Yep, I'm telling you these people think we are stupid, and they are flagrant with the way they crow about it right in front of us.

Lower cost or kill off more of the consuming non-producers?

its called population decrease, they're giving you the cancer and if they don't detect it until it's too late then "x" amount of people die, and what's left over "y" is the number of people they want on the earth.

Those with brains are still going to get checked out, those without can fucking die off...


And this is all without a doubt designed to lower expectations. Though in ten or so more years who's gonna know the difference...
