Four More Years of POPTS? Who Will Be CMA’s Next Stooge?

January 1, 2013

Happy New Year! January 1st, 2013 is finally here! The moratorium on law enforcement against POPTS is OVER! The Physical Therapy Board of California is now required to investigate and discipline therapists working for illegal POPTS. In baseball the umpire calls you OUT on the third strike. In the case of POPTS, law enforcement officials should call POPTS therapists OUT after failing to pass a bill legalizing their employment arrangement FOUR years in a row! And that’s the way the rules go in the ol’ ball game, but one should expect CMA to stall again or attempt to ‘buy’ the Speaker’s favor again. (picture source: prweb)

A second option for the CMA and COA would be to get a different legislator to run another POPTS legalization bill. STOPPOPTS suspects that the new author would be an apprentice of Speaker Perez and will be ‘forced’ to run the bill if he or she ever wants to get anywhere in their political career.

A third option for POPTS sympathizers would be to run a bill or insert language into an existing bill (as Senator Steinberg did) extending the moratorium on law enforcement by suggesting that there might be a “legislative fix” to physicians’ monopoly over the physical therapy industry. STOPPOPTS believes the items that really need fixing are conflicts of interest, substandard health care, and government that encourages it.

So STOPPOPTS asks………Who will CMA’s next stooge be now that Mary has left the building?

Rumor has it that the Las Vegas odds board just opened up today! Here are the highlights:

Senator Price 1,000,000,000:1
Senator Walters 1,000,000,000:1
Speaker Perez 10:12
Larry 7:1
Curly 8:1

Place your bets wisely!
