Pete has second thoughts about Stark

A post from the Science Business Blog recounts Congressman Fortney “Pete” Stark’s regrets for writing the self-referral laws that bear his name.

Physicians eventually learn how to survive while complying with the regulations. Once that happens the regulations change, and on the game goes.
