In BHO's world, I would have to go to Congress to get this new treatment approved for use... at a Congressional pace.
- Convince someone that it is a good idea. Not my doctor, not Kaiser, not my wife... but some bureaucrat or (most likely) a politician at the national level (Senator or House member).
- Get on the calendar. Along with all the other novel treatments, I will be heard (eventually), in order. Oh, and there will be no doctors on the panel.
- Get funded.
- get the bureaucratic rule writing done.
- Await implementation so my insurance (assuming that we were able to keep Kaiser - a "Cadillac" plan) can fund it through the government protocols.
- Get treated.
Oh, the fun we will have. Retaining lobbyist after lobbyist, flying to and fro for hearings, calling, e-mailing, waiting, and ultimately... not getting treated.
Yes, all my well being will come from that swamp that was mostly filled in, Washington D.C.
I need to take a pill...
