What a lunatic hypocrite.
Babbling freak Barbara Lyons, Executive Director of the fringe group Wisconsin Right to Life is applauding the passage of H.R. 452 in the congress, a bill that would “repeal the widely-criticized Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) created by President Obama’s health care law.”
According to Lyons, Obama’s big government health care mandate will result in rationing. This low life zealot got so bent out of shape over it that she sent out a press release stating in print a total lie. She created this fiction:
The IPAB consists of 15 unelected bureaucrats who are empowered to limit health care using “quality” and “efficiency” measures on health care providers, disqualifying the providers if they prescribe more life- saving medical treatments than permitted by IPAB.
It’s an advisory board, does not have the force of law, and has no power to ban or stop anything.
But Lyons found comfort with the following lawmakers quote:
Rep. Joe Pitts, chair of the subcommittee, “It is merely another example of valuing centralized decision-making by government appointed experts over judgments that should be made between a doctor and patient.
Sorry guys, you blew it. Lyons and Rep. Pitts better double check the hypocrisy meter for not complaining about this "centralized decision-making by government"…
VIRGINIA’S GENERAL ASSEMBLY has taken upon itself the task of ordering up procedures between women and their doctors — specifically, ultrasounds for women seeking abortions. The purpose of this exercise in coercion is to discourage women from ending their pregnancies. Forced on the legislature by anti-abortion lawmakers, nearly all of them Republicans, it is a prime example of ideology, nanny-state paternalism and arrogance trumping plain good sense.
It substitutes a mandate for a doctor’s judgment, so that the government will require ultrasounds even … the state will now make no allowance for a doctor’s discretion. And because the legislation mandates a waiting period of two to 24 hours between an ultrasound and an abortion, women will be hit with needless child-care costs and forced to take days off work … original version of the legislation, which would have required women seeking abortions to undergo transvaginal ultrasounds whether or not they consented.
Lyons should clarify her position before making any further statements.
