Why govt. health care is deadly

Beware Obamacare:

Federal bureaucrats have announced that, as of this month, the Medicare program will no longer provide financial rewards to doctors and hospitals who harm patients.

That is not a typo. For more than 40 years, Medicare has provided financial rewards to providers when a patient requires follow-up care following a medical error.

Medicare is Americas experiment with universal coverage. Operated by the federal government, it provides health insurance to more than 40 million elderly and disabled Americans.
