An article in the upcoming issue of the Texas Journal of Chiropractic reviews the ramifications of the Medicare update act passed last year. It is the largest reform on the American health care system since the Affordable Care Act.

For those who promote “Let’s forget organized medicine and just do our own thing,” what will you do about those who espouse the following policies?

Comment:  Organized medicine support improving diversity of representation on governmental quality improvement organizations, but they want to maintain a monopoly and "will forcefully advocate" against any guidelines having the governing bodies of these organizations "comprised of a majority of non-physicians."   

Equality is fine, but just not for us.  We MUST have superiority.  Our education is similar, will you continue to allow someone to claim superiority over you? How can you stand against it?
