Quick Links: Rollbacks, Shortages, Guidelines

Sally Pipes: "In The Aftermath Of Obama's Re-Election, What's Next For Health Care?"

She discusses some partial rollbacks to ObamaCare we might still be able to achieve, such as repealing the medical device tax.

ABC News: "Doctor Shortage Could Cause Health Care Crash"

As Dr. Randy Wexler noted, "Coverage does not equal access."

Fox News: "Hospital guidelines not linked to readmissions".

Top-down practice guidelines don't appear to actually improve patient health or reduce their requirement for future hospitalization.  Of course, these centralized practice guidelines are supposed to be one of the cornerstones of projected ObamaCare cost savings.
