If the Republicans are sponsoring it you can be assured it is not beneficial to the American public.

Today, my doctor and I decide my treatment. Unless this bill is passed, in 2014 an appointed board will decide if I may have treatment or not, and which treatment is cost effective. They will probably agree with Obama, "give her an aspirin and send her down the road".

Nana, today you, your doctor, and your insurance company decide your treatment and it will stay that way if this bill is passed. I'd much prefer me, my doctor, and a properly appointed board of medical professionals (rather than my insurance company) deciding my treatment.
