Mammography and Rationing

The mammography and rationing story is now big news. I don't have time right now to write up a detailed discussion.

But here are a few good pointers for more information and analysis of this story:

"A Breast Cancer Preview: Mammograms Provide Preview of ObamaCare"
Wall Street Journal, November 19, 2009

"Rationing's First Steps"
Investor's Business Daily, November 18, 2009

"Former Red Cross chief: Feds' new mammography policy is 'a shocking thing'", November 18, 2009

Here's the original Washington Post story that started much of the discussion:

"Breast exam guidelines now call for less testing"
Rob Stein, Washington Post, November 17, 2009
