They Said It! Obama Prefers Government to Make Health Care Decisions

President Obama in an interview with the New York Times lets slip that he contemplates a government role in selecting treatment options. Funny, I thought patients and doctors ought to be the ones making health care decisions.

"And part of what I think government can do effectively is to be an honest broker in assessing and evaluating treatment options." ("After the Great Recession," New York Times, 5/3/09)
