The reports were "from the government" yesterday.
Naturally people don't like it so now it's claimed that was "from an independent" and the government is saying nothing has changed. But Sebielius is also claiming that was GWB appointees what issued it, seems they can't make up their mind if it was an independent or government. Whole lotta backpedaling going on.
Now that I've read todays news on it conflicting with yesterday's news the conspiracy theorist in me thinks this was the government issuing it through someone they could deny to see how bad of healthcare they can get away with.
Nobody knows what the new healthcare will be and yesterday didn't say mammograms would be denied with it. It just said the new recommendations were not to get mammograms or do self-exams before age 50.
Yesterday it was official, today it is not.
Even the group that issued the recommendation is doing some backpedaling today.
