The article that you have referenced deals with the refusal of Medicaid to cover procedures or drugs, the author does not discuss problems with private insurance.

Are we to assume that the only problem this doctor has is with Medicaid and that service has never been denied under private insurance ?

There is also the assumption that the problems under Medicaid will "naturally" manifest themselves under a public option plan. Seems to me that a more natural assumption would be that there will be various levels of coverage under a public option just as there are under the current private option.

Strikes me that the article is biased and only telling part of the story.

He is giving specific examples of government run systems.
Shall we discuss the president's opinion of the US Post Office?

Sign our Petition. Tell the Senate, No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion

Will the Senate Allow Taxpayer Funding of Abortion?
November 10, 2009 | Share with Friends
Dear Gary,
While the overall bill passed by the House of Representatives could be described as a massive intrusion into the economy and the private healthcare choices that President Obama wants to foist upon the American taxpayer, the vote to stop government funding of abortion in the House of Representatives shows the importance of the pro-life movement in the health care debate.
Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) was able to insert language into the bill that prohibits federal funding from paying for abortion, or paying the part of the cost of any plan that covers abortion.
But the fight is far from over.
Already groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood have started lobbying Democratic Senators and the White House to strip the amendment from the bill.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the Democrats' chief deputy whip in the House, said that she and other pro-abortion rights lawmakers would work to strip the amendment in conference after the upper chamber passes its bill. She said she is "confident" the Stupak language would be removed.
Left wing blogs are reporting that President Obama has reassured pro-abortion lawmakers that he will personally see that this language was taken out.

"Windbag" has posted this before but if you were to Google Zane F. Pollard, MD, you'll realize he's just another political activist with an ax of some kind to grid. His articles include a few bits of truth and facts, and "MD" after his name gives it the appearence of creditability, but they are not "news," as the word "article" implies, rather disguised blogs that are anything but objective.

Read what he has to say, yes, but take it with a few grains of salt as you do so.

A.M. Best Co. Managing Senior Financial Analyst Sally Rosen discusses reasons the company has revised U.S. health sector's 2012 rating outlook to stable from negative. Rosen said health insurers were able to manage the various early requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Additionally, Rosen said operating earnings have remained favorable for a second year, largely due to a trend of broad-based moderation in utilization. However, Rosen said A.M. Best is maintaining a negative view on smaller, more specialized companies operating in individual and small group health insurance sectors, largely due to uncertainty over the ultimate impact of PPACA on their future strategic positioning, business models and profitability.

Angelo M. Codevilla, a professor emeritus of international relations at Boston University, sums up what has been transpiring for the past several years:

"The Republican Party owes its majority in the House of Representatives and John Boehner his speakership thereof to the American people's dislike of Obamacare. Because the US Constitution is explicit that the US government may expend only funds appropriated by Congress, Obamacare has existed strictly at the sufferance of the House leadership since that majority took office in January 2011" and "Boehner & Co. have worked in bipartisan coordination with the ruling class..."
