ARRA and Comperative Effectiveness Research

I've been extremely busy this spring taking care of family and normal business but extra busy helping out my agency increase the ranks of the dependent classes by handing out ARRA funds. I quickly came to the conclusion that this has little to do with jobs or economic recovery and everything to do with keeping the Democrats in office. There is candy in this legislation for constituencies that don't even exist yet !

Which leads me to the topic of Comparative Clinical Effectiveness Research (CER). This was in ARRA simply because it was part of Daschle's book, but when he was canned early on for tax stupidity someone forgot to remove it from the bill.

Sandy Szwarc over at Junkfood Science does an excellent job of describing just what the progressives plan to do with this data as they move forward dismantling the best health care system in the world. We can only hope there is enough spine remaining in the Senate to save us from this nonsense.
