The GOP’s Gift To Henry Waxman – I | Doug’s Brief Case

The $141 billion health care bill that cleared the House last month and that is expected to win Senate approval next week is a tribute from the GOP-controlled Congress to former Congressman Henry Waxman, a man who worked tirelessly – and with great success – to expand health care-related welfare spending.

Because the measure deals predominantly with Medicare, most have overlooked its nearly $30 billion hike in social welfare outlays.  The bill (H.R. 2)  increases Medicare payments to physicians, largely by replacing one complicated and flawed formula with another.  It directs the army of bureaucrats who populate CMS cube farms to soldier on with their futile, half-century-long quest to implement a workable system of administered pricing.
