    The new guidelines will reward docs for following practices that support the proper care based on scientific evidence.  That means there will be much less unnecessary testing and treatments that aren't effective.

    You would be surprised at how much money is wasted on redundant and/or unnecessary testing, for example.  From what I've seen, the oversight of these practices is good.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
