Politics + Health Care
Overheard on NPR this morning — Komen will continue to fund the (only) three Planned Parenthood facilities that offer mammograms.
Two things can be gleaned from this dispute:
1) SGK was foolish for citing its investigation grant policy as the reason for defunding. Should have been simple logic of PP not offering mammograms at most facilities (not good ROI for SGK).
2) Dangers of politics determining health care policy. It doesn’t matter whom you elect if the individual can arbitrarily open “investigations” and manipulate the system.
