14. It is more like private health insurance PR behind the stories.
They want to get the public riled up about RATIONING care. That's their big push right now. Get citizens to fear the prospect of HEALTH CARE RATIONING. You see, Mr. & Mrs. John Q. Public, you're gonna have to put up with horrible limits if you let the government run your health care.

What a coincidence that right after the mammogram limit story comes out, there's another one recommending slowing down pap smears.

Let's not think about the 45 million who can't get any preventative tests at all.

Let's not think about the same Republicans complaining about health care rationing with these recommendations being those who also voted against including annual mammograms and pap smears in health care reform bills.
