This is a good response from a PNHP doc regarding whether and how we ration medical care.
An excerpt: "
It is highly misleading to tell the public that our choice is between continued high numbers of uninsured people or rationing. Our choice is continued high numbers of the uninsured vs. cutting the enormous administrative waste and corporate profit out of our system with a single-payer system that allows us to lower the prices we pay for medical services, drugs and devices to levels paid in other countries."
In case the article is dropped from the Trib. website it is available here.
