LOS ANGELES -- California Congressman Henry Waxman, a Democrat who has played a central role in shaping President Obama's global warming and health care legislation, has been hospitalized in Los Angeles.

Waxman was not feeling well Tuesday, and was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for "routine testing," according to spokeswoman Karen Lightfoot.

Lightfood said Waxman was feeling "much better," but couldn't provide any further details.

Waxman chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The powerful congressman just finished steering the climate change legislation through a close House vote and has been gearing up to tackle health care later this summer.

It's a shame we don't have national health care now!He as a member of the American ruling class,the Congress, has the best health insurance in the world.I hope it's nothing too serious,just something that forces him to leave Congress. He probable has the bat pox as he looks like “Die Fledermaus.Maybe it's contagious and he'll infects Pelosi and Barney the Butt !”

Waxman is just setting an example for everyone once government-run health care (a/k/a single payer) is implemented. You should go to the hospital every time you don't feel well. :rolleyes:

That's one of the critiques of Medicaid. Recipients tend to call ambulances and/or go to the emergency room for things that could easily be taken care of at a doctor's office or clinic. But a lot of doctors will make Medicaid patients wait longer for routine care than they make paying or privately insured patients wait, so the MA patients figure that if they go to the emergency room, they'll get treated more quickly than at the doctor's office.

It depends of the circumstances.For a heart attack,severe puncture wound or a major bee sting by a swarm of bee's the emergency room is the way to go .For long term constipation or a persistant rash on the butt your doctors office makes more sense.Most major city emergency rooms have a separate staff of specialists trained in triage and Physical trauma medicine !
