During the Bush presidency, there were many times where one agency or another came out with findings or issued a report or released some bit of information that served to undermine a Bush position or policy (the 2007 National Intelligence Estimate that claimed that Iran had stopped its work on nukes is but one example)... and pretty much every time, there were cries from the right how unelected and unaccountable government bureaucrats were looking to trash Bush policies with which they didn't agree.

So now comes a government task force that recommends that regular mammograms aren't necessary for most women under the age of 50, a recommendation that runs counter to current guidelines that recommend routine mammograms for women starting at age 40.

And this news is released just when people are worried about whether Obamacare will result in medical care being rationed by government and in particular, by unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats... and the last thing Obama wants now is a real life situation where unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats are calling for reductions in the amount of medical care people receive.

Does this mean that there is at least one conservative somewhere in the bowels of government?
