Beginning in 2014, the IPAB, (Independent Payment Advisory Board, set up under Obamacare, will control Medicare costs by drasticlly cutting payments to doctors that take Medicare. This is expected to drastically reduce the number of doctors that accept Medicare. Those that still remain taking Medicare will have intense governemnt control limiting what treatments they can do. This will create a rationing program where older people are denied what we current view as normal medical treatment. Reach a certian age and you won’t get surgery to do a bypass, or to replace a bad hip, or any of the multiplicity of treatments that we currently think of as normal and that keep us alive and out of pain.
And it is going to cost us more for this lower quality of care to boot. Even if it wasn’t unconstitutional.
