the teenager diagnosed with cancer?
the baby born with Downs?
the baby born to a crack addicted mother?
the college athlete who in a game suddenly loses a limb?
the 32 year old soccer mom who is diagnosed with MS?
Yes, I’ve been concerned over the elderly, but under the plan people of all ages would be ‘rated’ as to what their chances of recovery are and assigned treatment based upon that.
Assigned treatment based upon their rating score. How compassionate, how caring, how Christian.
Speaking of being Christian it’s a good thing for Lazarus the Romans didn’t have a government run health care plan for he would have stayed dead. If the miracle isn’t sanctioned for someone already dead – forget it.
On a personal note when my dad was diagnosed with cancer 15 years ago there was no expense, no action, that we wouldn’t have taken to have him stay alive for cancer at 58 is way too young to be told you can’t have treatment that will cure you, only treatment that’s palliative.
Finally, an idea that will appease all parties. I’ll start a 501c3 to raise money for those who need a bus ticket to Canada so they can have Canadian rationed care. This will lower the cost on the American system as well.
