Health insurance rates in Georgia are rising by up to 198 percent under Obamacare, the Georgia Insurance Commissioner said in a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Monday. The union that represents IRS employees is urging its members to write to their congressmen to help get the union out of Obamacare. Former Democrat Presidential Candidate and Governor of Vermont Howard Dean said:
“The Independent Payment Advisory Board is a “health-care rationing body,” which has the power to set rates for certain procedures for Medicare and determine which procedures and drugs will be covered.
The IPAB will be able to stop certain treatments its members do not favor by simply setting rates to levels where no doctor or hospital will perform them.”
While Dean agrees that costs need to be contained, he says the mechanism that will run the IPAB — known as rate-setting — has a 40-year track record of failure.
Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin had the same opinion that it is a rationing body and the IPAB will decide who will die and who will live, strictly by bureaucratic regulation, not in a doctor patient relationship. She therefore dubbed them the IPAB “Death Panel.”
