Add one more reason to the list:
D.C.’s AIDS Dollars Squandered
Part 1 – Wasting Away: Staggering Need, Striking Neglect
The first part of the WaPo’s report talks about how one in three of D.C.’s AIDS dollars earmarked for small groups went to organizations marked by financial problems and questionable services: The nation’s worst-hit city awards millions for care and shelter without ensuring it gets to those it’s meant to help
That’s what happens when government is in charge of the healthcare dollars.
I took part in a bloggers’ call with Sen. Orrin Hatch last Friday. Brian Faughnan posts,
Senator Hatch effectively explains how Democrats are trying to pass health care by playing a ‘shell game.’ Rather than introduce one comprehensive health care overhaul, with honest budgeting and a transparent financing mechanism, their reform bill is a constantly moving target. They’re using budget gimmicks to mask the cost, and pushing some parts of the overall package into separately-passed bills, because to include them would render the bill impossible to pass.
