ER Rules

I read in the paper this morning (and have just noticed over on Eschaton) that the Bush administration isn't just feeding its partners in the energy industry. The big donations that I'm sure the large health care networks made to his campaign have resulted in the relaxation of the 1986 Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act that requires hospitals that accept Medicare money to treat anyone who shows up in the Emergency Room with a complaint.

Now remind me again how the compassionate part of Compassionate Conservatism works?
