Our government just issued new guidelines for breast cancer screening which eliminate routine mammograms for women 40-49 years old, cut in half the frequency of mammograms for women 50-74, and eliminate them for women 75 or older. The American Cancer Society and other experts condemned the change.
Isn’t this rationing exactly what the “Angry Mob” has been worried about?
ObamaCare: We’re Scrooged
By Asher Embry
Our government just said we screen for cancer way too much.
They think we’re spending too much dough on mammograms and such.
(Our private doctor heard the news and summoned up a swear.)
What happened to O’s constant praising of preventive care?
And what comes next? What other routine healthcare will be lost?
Perhaps Barack will rule that EKG’s aren’t worth the cost.
Who needs a new hip, MRI or blood test anyway?
We’ll wait until the Health Choices Commission has its say.
So, we just got a glimpse of what our healthcare holds in store.
Like Scrooge, we got to see the future Congress voted for.
It’s clear the kind of treatment which ObamaCare will give.
We vote: it’s not the system under which we choose to live.
