Commenter: Diana Degette, U.S. Representative for Colorado's 1st Congressional Distric

Last 3 pages of Cures Act about EVV were "slid" in

The Cures Act is 996 pages long with only the last three pages slid in about EVV.  It was a camouflaged intent and an under-the-table move (as many policies and legislation are).  It's not anyone's fault other than the government's for this colossal mess before us.  It's not an advocate's fault, it's not a voter's fault, it's not the fault of the client, or caregiver or anyone else for that matter.  Lawmakers have been making bad policies and laws since the beginning of time.  In fact, Diana Degette, U.S. Representative for Colorado's 1st Congressional District, even admitted that this was "slid in".  The blame of why EVV exists isn't resitng on anyone's shoulders except for a very corrupt governmental agenda.
