And republicans congressmen have noticed too.

But Republicans are drawing parallels between the advisory panel recommendations and so-called “comparative effectiveness efforts” that would be employed under Democratic health plans to control skyrocketing costs. The idea is that panels would study different treatments would be studied to determine which are the most effective.

Panels? Hmmm what KIND of panels.
