The US Preventative Services Task Force, a government board, has recommended that women over 40 stop having mammograms. Let me restate this: A government board has suggested that women stop getting mammograms because they aren't needed.

And we're going to let the government run health care.

Perhaps you should read the article before you ridicule the Heath Board. The first sentence in the article alone clearly refutes your statement, but I'll point it out for you. The board suggested having exams every other year instead of annually, not stopping them altogether. Can you say, "Straw man argument"?

If you want to make a point, then talk about how the ACS thinks that's bogus. That would be a good argument, instead of the one you invented.

I read the article. They want women over 40 to stop having mammograms as frequently as doctors recommend. They want them to stop having them every year. Stop having mammograms.

The point is that up until today, women over 40 were supposed to get a mammogram every year to catch cancer early. Now, it seems, women over 40 aren't worth the effort.
