Democrats Protecting Their Own While Assaulting The Rest
June 12, 2008 2:25pm CST
Democrats in Congress display their special knack for corruption with their destructive assault on doctor-owned hospitals. Three times in the last year, the House or Senate passed bills banning referrals of Medicare or Medicaid patients to hospitals in which doctors own significant stock. This would effectively shut-down smaller, specialized alternatives to often overcrowded metropolitan hospitals in a misguided attempt to control costs. Nothing from that should shock you, we are talking about Democrat here. What I find interesting is that Senators Herb Kohl and Patty Murray want to make exceptions to the ban for medical facilities in their own states. This two want to exempting doctor-owned hospitals in Wisconsin and Washington. In other words, Senators grab new power to crack down on hospitals they say they don’t like but then inspire gratitude, and probably future contributions, from constituents they’ve specially shielded from the general destruction. This is arrogant manipulation of the most transparent sort.

Yes, but the democrats "care", and it isn't fair that doctors have a stake in the jobs they do. Besides, that makes it harder to shove communist health care down our throats. As to the manipulation, that is absolutely correct. There should be no exceptions to any laws, and to do so is wrong and smacks of corruption and special interest pandering. In other words, this is simply business as usual for the corrupt communists... er, democrats.
