Government Death Panels

The argument that health care reform will create death panels is clearly pretty absurd. Health care is always rationed. Sometimes by price, sometimes in other ways. But what is totall absurd is to argue that the political branches will cut services for the voting public. The government cannot end Saturday postal delivery or cut routes of Amtrak.

Sometimes, the government is critical in extending care. This article in the Washington Post shows how Medicare was instrumental in extending dialysis treatment.
