I think I see the problem now.
I was reading an article about Sen. Jim DeMint and his opposition to the current reform bill in the Washington Post.
Then I got to this paragraph:
"Five floors above him, J.B. Barker, 85, a retired truck driver, sat in a bed recovering from heart and lung congestion problems. Lunching on pepperoni pizza and Pepsi with his wife, Ellen, sitting at his side, Barker said that he does not want Washington meddling with his medical care and that he doubts Congress can craft a better system".
Recovering from "heart & lung congestion" by eating a salt-laden pepperoni pizza and a sugar-filled Pepsi?
Q: Who should be the poster child for why physician compensation should not be linked to patient outcomes?
- J.B. Barker
- The Smoker-in-Chief.
- Dr. Regina "BMI" Benjamin, our new Surgeon General.
Answer: All of the above
