Hey, remember when that slimy demonic shithead from Florida claimed that the Republicans just wanted people to die quickly?
If you’re at risk of prostate cancer — in other words, if you’re male — the best place to be is the United States, where survival rates are highest in the world. But not for long, if the Obama administration gets its way in curtailing a test that flags prostate cancer before it spreads.
The administration wants to penalize doctors who routinely order the PSA blood test. Under a proposed policy, those doctors will get demerits for being considered over-spenders, while doctors who skip the test will be rewarded with a high “quality” rating from the government — and be paid more.
The Obama administration claims less care is better. That’s double-talk. An editorial in the current issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association points to a sudden, disturbing drop in prostate-cancer detection since 2011, when the United States Preventive Services Task Force recommended against using this simple test.
Worse, the journal predicts more prostate-cancer deaths due to the drop.
As predicted, Obamacare and every other socialist health care system just wants older patients to die, so they don't have to spend money on them. Anyone with half a brain could have seen this scenario coming.
But that leaves out Democrat voters, doesn't it?
