Dateline, Washington, D.C. 3:50 PM, 9/30/2013MOC James Langford now wants to pull all individual exemptions in Obamacare while leaving intact current business exemptions. He points out how at first Congressional exemptions were proposed and then replaced by mandatory participation and then in turn how subsidies snuck into the game with the result that individual exemptions blossomed for the favored few on both sides of the political aisle leaving the befuddled middle class out in the proverbial cold. At this writing there's still 8 hours to go to shutdown.
Writing in Neurology Today, Vol. 3 (8), August 2003, Dawn Antoline writes "Robert L. Weinmann, MD, has never been one to shy away from controversy. Whether he is writing muckraking editorials about HMOs that deny physician claims or ... billing practices ... he has committed himself to a life of activism. At the heart of his advocacy is a passionate regard for his patients -- and the ability of physicians to provide unfettered optimal care."
