One thing I find interesting is how Obama showcased someone whose mother died because she did not have insurance to cover a necessary procedure (I believe).
So I wonder if these types of cases would be would ever be publicized if the government decided against a necessary procedure because it was too expensive or that the likelihood of success was too low and the person died in a similar manner....
This does happen in some countries with socialized medicine, doesn't it?
See the current medicare/medicaid drop or refusal rate. Its twice as high than any insurance company. Just wait till rationing starts.
