A Picture is Worth 1000 Words

If a picture is worth 1000 words, how much is 6 pages of Obamacrap worth? About 429 pages of regulations. Section 3022 of Obamacrap refers to Medicare shared savings.

Among other things, the Medicare shared savings program creates ACO's (Accountable Care Organizations), a form of managed care for seniors. The upshot of ACO's is they will be rewarded for offering lower cost preventive care and treatment.

ACO's are to report directly to HHS which is another way of saying the government will know who is being treated, for what conditions, and how much money is being saved.

The link to Sen. Barrasso's summary points out that not only will the Medicare shared savings plan do little to really save money but he also reminds us that almost 3 million people have been granted Obamacrap waivers by HHS.

You can read the six pages addressing the Medicare shared savings plan by searching for Section 3022 of the law. The 429 pages of regulations from HHS can be viewed here.

At this rate, the bill that had to be passed so we would know what was in it will easily surpass 100,000 pages of legal mumbo jumbo that results in reduced care, fewer choices, higher premiums and higher taxes.

Just another stupid government trick.
