Obama, Pelosi and their gang of liberals purposely fail to include:
1. Nuclear Energy as a part of the solution to the energy question
2. Tort reform as part of the healthcare equation--even with a government-run plan, you won't be able to sue the government, but you can still sue your doctor
Don't these facts demonstrate that THEY are the party so beholden to special interests (the enviro-lobby and the trial lawyers,) that they don't really care about the cost or effectiveness of any of the policies they advocate and pass into law? They only care about their money train.
Obama wants to pay doctors based on the quality of care they provide (I wonder if his doctor would get docked because Obama won't quit smoking?) Funny how pay-for-quality was decried by liberals and conservatives alike when it was under Bush "No Child Left Behind," but now it's the answer to our health care costs.
Can we pay politicians for the quality they provide?
