Here comes the avalanche

The model of efficiency that is our Federal government is wasting no time twisting your health care out of all recognition:

"The IRS, Health and Human Services and many other agencies will now write thousands of pages of regulations -- an effort well under way:

'There's already 13,000 pages of regulations, and they're not even done yet,' [Montana Representative Denny] Rehberg said."

Remember - violating a single one of these countless bureaucratic edicts will no doubt result at the very least in a heavy fine for the doctor or patient who breaks them (however unwittingly), and jail time at the worst.  If you don't believe us take a peek for yourselves at the current draconian penalties for the hapless doctor who somehow fails to implement even a minor part of HIPAA.

We visualize a future in which the doctor and patient both bring lawyers into the exam room to make sure everyone's butt is covered (except the actual one being examined, of course.  Those gowns cover nothing).  And this is supposed to improve health care how?

Best of luck at your next physical.
