Abortion issue could derail health reform Nineteen Democrats have written House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promising never to vote for a health bill that includes funding for abortion, igniting a debate that has the potential to derail a ongoing health care overhaul, NPR reports. I take a watch that there’s just about anything [that could be compromised] in public affairs except probably the issue of abortion, said Sen.House of Representatives possess demonstrated an exceptional spirit of bipartisan cooperation to advance thoughtfully constructed, ACS-supported legislation that will provide much needed balance to the Medicare plan, stated David B. Hoyt, MD, FACS, executive director of the American University of Surgeons. THE FACULTY applauds the concern lawmakers are placing on moving the SGR Repeal and Medicare Service provider Payment Modernization Action of 2015. Surgeons will continue steadily to educate their representatives and senators and desire them to move this bill, which protects Medicare beneficiaries and the viability of surgical practices.
