Saint Martin Of Tours And The New World Of Public Policy
an article in The Humanist by Richard D. Lamm
(our site's article review)
Richard D. Lamm says that we have to show discretion when we decide how to reform health care. We cannot afford to give to everyone every health care item that would be beneficial. France did a study on this and found that if they used that criteria, it would cost five times France’s GNP. “There is no end to the things that a creative and inventive society can do to aging bodies. It is a fiscal black hole into which we can pour all of our children’s future.” We have no choice but to ration health care, he says. He also advocates the new, ecological-holistic paradigm.
Fast forward to 2014 when the curse of ObamaDon'tCare is upon us in all its foolish ineptitude. See lots more on this page: Health Care Costs.
