    Health care is rationed everywhere in the world, one way or another. Welcome to real life.

    That's it? That's your answer? 'Everyone else is doing it so we may as well do it too'?

    Some middle class bureaucrat making decisions about policy coverage based on published rules and guidelines subject to public debate or a million dollar insurance executive making decisions about coverage based on whether or not he can cover his country club dues this year...

    Bureaucrat 'A' or Bureaucrat 'B'.... :eusa_think: Decisions, Decisions!!

    M'eh.

    It annoys me when people cite the Hippocratic Oath as some sort of binding entity that matters in the modern practice of medicine. At best, it's a philosophy. At worst, it's feel-good window dressing for white coat ceremonies.

    Plus, it was never quite the same after they pulled out the elements of polytheism and sleeping with slaves.

    Wow... you could use that kind of logic to justify all kinds of unsavory things. You'd only do that for our own good, right?

    We do it already ... your private insurance company rations care.

    They do ration to an extent. But, with the government, the rationing is going to really hit the aged hard, the ones that need it the most. This I cannot subscribe to, this is the area where private insurance stands out from the government solutions.
    If your young, it's easy to say the "duty to die" crap. But, as the young grow old, I guarantee that attitude will change.
