Rare Bi-Partisanship on Healthcare

December 3rd, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

“We will continue to counsel women to have yearly mammograms starting at age 40.” — STL County Executive Charlie Dooley

It’s always great to see bi-partisanship, especially when it’s dealing with healthcare. Mr. Dooley, a strong supporter of the President’s plan and Congressman Bunt – a strong opponent – agree that women should still get mammograms starting at age 40. Many cynics believe that the task force’s recommendation that women delay getting mammograms until 50 was the Administration’s backdoor attempt at rationing.
