EXACTLY. And these are decisions best left up to the family. Government has no business making these types of decisions. None, period. All these types of decisions should be based on personal standards of ethics, morality, ability to pay or the lack there of, love, compassion, and common sense. None of which you will find in the heart of some overpaid hack of a government employee without any accountability or moral compass.
Progressives always amaze me in as much as they hate the heartless decisions made by Corporations who are only interested in profit. That's their mantra, their belief. Yet they will run like lemmings to the opportunity to turn their life and death decisions over to a bloated unaccountable pack of political hacks who are in it to save the government money, or allow government to run the medical system at basically, well, a profit. Profit, or budget balancing if you will, is only good if its done by some immoral prick of a human being like, well pick any grining hack of a politician totally at random for an example. In their minds.
When government can ration your care, you will turn to them in desperation. They will tell you what to think, how to think, and when to think it. This system opens itself up to the lowest common denominator regarding control and abuse of the human condition. It is the very definition of tyranny. And it will turn your world upside down. The only people left who will get quality care will be other hack politicians, the political elite. This is Argentina, or Russia, but not a country whose foundation was built on individual freedom.
Anyone who thinks this thing is anything less than a corrupt attempt to control every aspect of your life and mind, is a fuckin idiot. Anyone who would desire such control is also a fuckin idiot.
