Government Health Care Trade-Offs: Death or Treatment?
Posted by Doug Bandow
*** begin quote ***
Uwe Reinhardt has made the argument that health care rationing is health care rationing. It’s inevitable, so there’s no big deal about the government exerting more control. I argued earlier that this ignores the question 0f who is doing the rationing, us or the government? Since resources are finite but desires are infinite, we all engage in “rationing” in most every aspect of our lives. But we do so based on our needs, wants, wishes, and dreams, not those of politicians or bureaucrats.

… all for the common good!
Why do I think that the politicians will get a different “health care plan”?
And, could this be a way to quicken the collection of death taxes?
