The Bureaucracy of Health Care Reform

As part of the overall health care reform plan, Senate Democrats are proposing a new level of bureaucracy, controlled by the Executive Branch, that looks to amend Medicare with the creation of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPac). Among other authorities created under the new act, MedPac would also determine payment rates and services, and would direct future research dollars by advising the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Because MedPac will not be subject to any kind of deliberative process that the legislative branch would naturally impose, its creation as part of the Executive Branch by the Dems is yet another intentional federal power grab that will no doubt affect the everyday lives of Americans – moving us further away from government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
