The Allegislature Strikes Again

The Miami Herald reports that Legislators inadvertently give ‘pill mills’ a break

TALLAHASSEE — In their zeal to slow down government regulations, Florida lawmakers have inadvertently halted an effort to regulate so-called “pill mills” that fuel an epidemic of prescription drug abuse.

The regulations were set to take effect Sunday for most pain clinics. But they are stalled by a new law intended to crack down on expensive state regulations. The law requires legislative approval of rules that have a significant fiscal impact.

The twits in Tallahassee “accidentally” passed a bill that would stop the cut off a certain radio host from his Oxycodone supply from cash-only “pain clinics”.

In Florida medical clinics are currently only subject to inspection and regulation if they accept insurance payments. Barbers have more stringent requirements than doctors, and that is a relic of their profession’s past as the surgeons and dentists in the 19th century.

I did find this one pretty sad though. And it really shows how bad your system is.

The Shrubbery’s brother was a true-believer in privatizing everything in government “because the private sector was more efficient”. JEB also promoted faith-based programs in the state.

I have seen people talking about him as a Presidential candidate. Wait until the voters hear about the Lehman Brothers deal that cost the state pension fund millions, and several of the appointments he made. The clown couldn’t locate a director of the state’s child welfare program that anyone would trust to watch their dog, much less children.

No one seems to realize that the “death panels” already exist at private health insurance companies.
