Health Care Rationing

Why do the same people who think that they have a formula for determining when Grandma is entitled to have her last operation become so jittery when it comes to the death penalty for murder?


The idea that health care is too expensive is beyond riduculous.

When Social Security was invented in the 1930s, and the retirement age was set at 65, we figured that we were setting an impossibly high standard, that the few people who got to 65 were lucky, and were entitled to their retirement.

Now, a 65-year old man dies, and he still has his baseball cards.

The question should not be why is health care so expensive. It's so expensive because it saves lives.

The question should be how do we save everybody's life.

I am really disappointed with the turn this health care debate is taking.
