I’m sure this was an attempt by the government to save money, but in the vast majority of cases the ordering physician has no secondary gain, and they order the test because they think it’s the right thing to do. I can understand it for some expensive tests or procedures, but many are just plain obvious.
I think lawmakers should have a taste of their own medicine. When they need office supplies, they should have to give a reason. Here, I’ll help them out with a few items to help them understand how it works:
Staples – To attach separate pieces of paper.
Notepad – To write down information.
Pen – To apply in conjunction with a notepad to convey information.
Chair – To help counteract gravity to prevent leg and back pain and fatigue.
Laser Printer Toner – To print out things using a laser printer.
Light Bulb – To counteract darkness.
