Health Care Rationing

An inevitable consequence of whatever is passed with regard to health insurance is rationing. Cuts in Medicare funding are already a major feature and the result is seniors will be forced out of end of life measures which extend life minimally and cost the "system" excessively. This ethical situation is fascinating to consider in the abstract, but when you or a family member is involved, the decision could easily be different for each of us. The extent to which heroic measures should be taken in individual cases is one decision, who pays for it is another, and finally there the question of whether or not the government makes the decision is the biggest of all in some ways. Liberals seem to want the government to be out of the abortion decision and preeminent in the end of life decisions.
