The revised guidelines were quickly dismissed by the administration and members of the Senate just as quickly amended their pending health care legislation to assure that there would be full coverage for this screening no questions asked. There was no time for debate and nobody really cared if the suggested rethinking was right or wrong it was politically incorrect…and it was emotional. These two factors are the primary drivers for health care spending decisions in the future.
