We Stand FIRM: Two From the NYT

We Stand FIRM: Two From the NYT:

""Rationing health care under the guise of quality". 

"Under ObamaCare government "quality measures" will be imposed throughout all branches of medicine, not just transplant surgery.  These metrics will create powerful incentives for doctors to limit care in order to protect their practice statistics.  Doctors will be increasingly hesitant to perform the riskier heart surgeries or cancer surgeries on the sicker patients.  Instead of an incentive to practice medicine, doctors will be soon working under perverse incentives to not practice medicine.

And it will be the sickest patients who will suffer the most"
