    “The new health care law gives a board of fifteen unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats an incredible and disturbing level of decision-making authority over the quality and accessibility of health care for America’s seniors,” said Chairman Price. “The Independent Payment Advisory Board would have the power to determine what to pay doctors to provide treatments and services under Medicare. Denial of payment for care would ultimately lead to the denial of care for our seniors. That is an unacceptable vision for the future of Medicare."

    Medicare is a government run health insurance system, yes? The GOP agrees with the POTUS that in it's current state, it is unsustainable, yes? Don't PRIVATE insurance companies negotiate rates with doctors for services provided everyday of the week and twice on Sunday? I know BCBS certainly does, and they also have denied me prescriptions as well as at least two MRIs in the past. How is the IPAB any different? Why should it be any different?

    "Hands off my government run Healthcare" , anybody?

    We told the lying asswipes this before passage. The left became unhinged. Cried about Insurance companies while promoting this.

    Swore there would be no "death panels" and declared all such claims were lies, hysteria, etc.

    Even though it was THERE IN BLACK AND WHITE.

    Lying asswipes, they don't deserve citizenship.

    How IS it a death panel? Their role is to negotiate pricing. Which according to the GOP is perfectly normal and fine in our capitalistic society, right?

    An unelected panel of bureaucrats (the death panel) decide what gets paid for and what doesn't. Denial of payment means denial of care.

    If it is, then every insurance company in the world is a death panel.
