I work with physicians and physician owned hospitals. Why is this issue in this bill?

Because opponents of physician owned hospitals try to put bans like this on anything they can. Similar bans were placed on the SCHIP bill, a farm bill, and a few others in the recent past.

Because the minority party blocks all programs to actually help the poor. And the pennies per thousand of this amendment attributable to medicaid should embarrass those who tried to cut it.

I think this is where they slipped in the "Merida Initiative" which proposes billions of dollars for the fake drug war and giving lethal aid to mexican forces implicated in murders and massacres.

C'mon guys. Physician owned hospitals are at best a conflict of interest, and in the good old days were banned by Medicare because of it. Physicians who have ownership in hospitals order more expensive tests than physicians that don't, and they ship off unprofitable patients to other hospitals.

This looks like to me the government ran out of money, doesn't know how to operate on a budget and is now asking for more money. If it's for things for the US citizens - like Iowans, fine. but for more terrorist fighting money - NFW!!!

This is like any one of us asking out bosses for more salary money because we can't manage our own budgets. We'd probably get fired and that's EXACTLY what needs to happen with this bill! They lump in too many things that are not related just and demand passing the whole thing.

They probably need more money so that can arrange another false flag event, making Iran look like the terrorists that actually our administration is, then start a war that will envelop the entire mid-east and bring America to its knees financially. And they do it all with our money. Doesn't that make you feel soooo good?

Well I have just been turned down for the EDD extension by CA sighting Supplemental Appropriations Act requirement that I made 40x more $ than my weekly benefit amount = more than double my old income! This is a upper middle class program! Figures!

Title IV has several mistakes. It does not reflect the actual law but rather the bill before the conference agreement.
