<<But actually all of the health insurance policies I am aware of already ration care. They are all capped with lifetime benefits of $1MM to $1.5MM. They also specify specific maximums for nearly every treatment option. This is rationing. We already have it. We are used to it.Why should govt insurance be any different?>> Because government rationing of health care will be entirely different. Rather than a lifetime cap on medical costs covered, government health care should be expected to decide that at age 70 or so, no intensive treatment of pneumonia will be provided, or no access to hip replacement surgery or whatever. Democrats have been hollering for health care cost containment, and that's what we should expect it to look like in my opinion. You can see that kind of thing happening in Canada and Britain as a matter of routine.Seattle Pioneer
