Health Care Provisions Buried in The Unemployment Benefits Extenders Bill
Posted By Nina Owcharenko On March 15, 2010 @ 2:00 pm In Health Care | 4 Comments
Congressional liberals are working overtime. In case you missed it, hidden behind the non-stop news coverage of the health care debate, the Senate-passed extenders bill includes several health care provisions that follow the same flawed policies of the big Stimulus Bill . Once again, these provisions move the health care system in the wrong direction.
This bill is a good reminder that even if the massive health care overhaul fails, health care is not dead. Ill-advised health care proposals gain support in different forms, and can be enacted in bite-sized bits.
