    Great news for progressives!

    "Sixteen states have set a limit on the number of prescription drugs they will cover for Medicaid patients, according to Kaiser Health News.
    Seven of those states, according to Kaiser Health News, have enacted or tightened those limits in just the last two years."

    I told you I've been watching the quality and quantity of care provided for Medicare and welfare medical clients rapidly go south since it was obvious that Obamacare was going to go through.

    Rationing Begins: States Limiting Drug Prescriptions for Medicaid Patients | CNSNews.com

    It's going to get much, much worse. Our quality of care is going to go downhill so quickly it will make your head spin, and mortality rate of babies, women, the elderly and disabled...those are going to skyrocket.

    To the tune of "if you can't contribute to society, you should kill yourself!" and "If your child faces a lifetime of misery, kill it!" and "We have no room for elderly and disabled resource drains!"

    The state isn't going to dictate your treatment, that's just silly!

    "
    In Alabama, Medicaid patients are now limited to one brand-name drug, and HIV and psychiatric drugs are excluded.
    Illinois has limited Medicaid patients to just four prescription drugs as a cost-cutting move, and patients who need more than four must get permission from the state."

    Progressives don't give a shit. This is what they want anyway. A way to deny treatment to people they see as a drain on resources. Bottom line.

    Q: What could be bigger, more remote and less concerned with individuals than an insurance company?
    A: The federal government.

    I hope so.

    And I pray so....and I hope that the left doesn't launch an all-out attack, of a real sort.

    Aging population and a collapsing workforce. Simple economics... except to liberals.
