Is This The End of Bush’s HHS Regulations?


The less than one-day old Obama administration is already cleaning up Bush's mess - are the ill-intended HHS regulations included?

From CNN’s Political Ticker (h/t to Amanda!):

WASHINGTON (CNN)– President Obama has wasted no time handling the Bush administration’s unfinished business.

White House officials tell CNN Obama Chief Staff of Staff Rahm Emanuel sent a memo Tuesday to all agencies and departments of the federal government. The memo halts further consideration of pending regulations throughout the government until a legal and policy review can be conducted by the Obama Administration.

Can we assume that the ill-intended and ill-advised HHS regulations that allow for health care providers, or any staff that work with said providers, to opt-out of providing patient requested health care services are included in the above?
