The Independent Advisory Board for Medicare was under jurisdiction of Finance Cmte. After looking at the legislative language for the Finance bill, I cannot find similar language as is included on Page 1020 of the new Reid bill in relation to Medicare advisory Board.How cunning and deceitful. He just slipped it in there AFTER it had already been passed by the Finance Committee....

Tricky Reid slipped unrepealable provision in bill AFTER it was passed by the Finance Committee
With regards to the language in the senate health care bill that fascistically barrs future Congresses from amending or repealing the subsection pertaining to the Medicare Advisory Board [see previous post] - a Senate aide tells the Weekly Standard that it appears that Harry Reid slipped in the provision AFTER it had already been passed by the Finance Committee.
