Who determines what treatment you get? Will everyone be able to get the latest and greatest cancer treatments, regardless of age and standard of living? Healthcare doesn't grow on trees. The uncomfortable truth is that in any government healthcare system, HR 3200 notwithstanding, federal accountants will ultimately be calling the shots. If accountants do not call the shots, the system will fail in short order. The term "Death Panels" dramatizes this truth. I hope this makes clear one of the issues of the current debate.
