In the GOP weekly radio/YouTube address, Sen. Enzi (R-Wyoming) was critical of the existing health restructuring proposals - particularly the one that emerged from the senate HELP committee. Specifically addressing rationing concerns, he noted the lack of adequate financing mechanisms and also pointed to comparative effectiveness research provisions.
“The bills would expand comparative effectiveness research that would be used to limit or deny care based on age or disability of patients. Republican amendments in the HELP Committee would have protected Americans by prohibiting the rationing of their health care. The Democrats showed their true intent by voting every amendment down and leaving these unacceptable provisions in the bill. This intrusion of a Washington bureaucrat in the relationship between a doctor and a patient is not the kind of reform that Americans are seeking."
