Surprise – Mayo Clinic slams ObamaCare

mayoHa!  One more to add to the list.  The Mayo Clinic had this to say about ObamaCare:

Although there are some positive provisions in the current House Tri-Committee bill – including insurance for all and payment reform demonstration projects – the proposed legislation misses the opportunity to help create higher-quality, more affordable health care for patients. In fact, it will do the opposite.

In general, the proposals under discussion are not patient focused or results oriented. Lawmakers have failed to use a fundamental lever – a change in Medicare payment policy – to help drive necessary improvements in American health care. Unless legislators create payment systems that pay for good patient results at reasonable costs, the promise of transformation in American health care will wither. The real losers will be the citizens of the United States.  —  Mayo Clinic Health Policy Blog

Ouch.  This is the same May Clinic that Obama praised for doing things right:

“And that the measure of the quality of care is not quantity, but whether or not it is making you better. Now, what we’ve seen is that there’s some communities and some health systems that do this very well. Mayo Clinic, a classic example. In Rochester, Minnesota. People go there. They– spend about 20-30 percent less than some other parts of the country, and yet have better outcomes.”  —  ABC News

So, once again, we see that the ObamaCare plan has nothing to do with providing quality care or fixing the problems in the health care system.  Its about socialism, pure and simple.  Increasing peoples dependency on the government to protect their own power.

The more people look at this plan, the more they hate it and Team Obama is doing everything to hide how bad things are and force through a vote as soon as possible, with as little notice as possible.

    Sigh, it’s all just so *stupid*.
    I am glad, as a native Minnesotan, that our beloved Mayo clinic said “hell no” to this tripe. Good for them for having a brain and using it.
    Now we just have to get everyone else on board.
