    MY letter of thanks sent to Senator Burr

    I wanted to thank you for your vote on HR 2. Ending the SGR problem was needed.
    However, I don’t think the price of passing an SGR fix was worth the damage that will be done by this bill. IT represents perhaps the most massive expansion of government authority in healthcare ever devised in unproven and yet to be determined models and standards. I realize you are glad to say you voted against the ACA but this bill is far more intrusive and demanding in its effects than the ACA can ever dream of becoming. If Republicans are to stand for more government and more invasion of our businesses and lives, than ever before , this bill was a great start in achieving that goal.
    The devastating effects to our small independent practices and especially rural area providers with its demands for regulatory actions and participation in unproven ACO models will be rapid and long lasting. ACO’s despite the smoke that CMS blew up somewhere are poorly functioning and experimental models that aren’t working currently in existing areas and especially poorly in rural areas. The last comments period on the rule revealed thousands of comments detailing the flaws and mistakes in the program assumptions that CMS has known about and ignored. This bill condemns us to participation in an unproven model that has yet to show broad success and acceptance. So in summary if you were trying for more government interference in healthcare and larger more invasive government with a great expansion of government regulatory authority then you have succeeded wildly
