Who Will Determine Who Gets a Mammogram and How Often Under ObamaCare?

Hint: It's not you and your doctor.

As John Goodman notes:
...Ever since the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force called for fewer mammograms and fewer Pap smears, the Obama Administration has been trying to distance itself from the organization -- referring to its recommendations as "nonbinding."

Yet the National Center for Policy Analysis has discovered that the Reid health care bill refers to the task force no less than 26 times. And, yes, the task force will determine what screenings will and will not be included in the minimum coverage that everyone will be required to buy.
No matter how much the government says it's not engaging in rationing, Americans are starting to catch on to the double-speak.
