All who supported the "we will find out what is in the bill once we pass it into law" legislation should either reject the entire rotten mess or recuse themselves from criticizing bits and pieces of it. It represents the most destructive political intrusion into the practice of medicine in the history of our country. If you recall, the man who invented the scheme imposed it on the people of Massachusetts before the Feds imposed it on the rest of us. Then the GOP ran him as its candidate in 2012.
