Healthcare

Lots of people are complaining about Obama Care and the associated cost and long term affordability in the accounting.

Certainly national healthcare is expensive, but we are paying for it.

Instead of paying hospitals for lots of very expensive emergency room visits, we are paying for healthcare for all. It’s more economical over all in the long term.

Certainly there will be some changes and change is always stressful.

Some more changes I think that are due, and that are happening is that medical care should be adjudicated. The greatest good for the greatest number.

Young people should take priority. The old and infirm with no responsibilities should receive palliative care. Good palliative care, but organ transplants and other very expensive treatment should be prioritized.  We are all going to go someday. Best be ready anytime.

I agree with Ezekiel J Emanual —- I hope to die by 75.

I don’t plan to facilitate that actively, but having seen my parents decline with various disabilities and the very stressful end, I’m all for hospice care.  And of course, care must be monitored to prevent abuse or other bad behaviors.

Of course we all love our ancestors, but isn’t it better to remember them from their peak rather then from the depredations of age ?

Based on Natural Law, a old sick hominid would become food for carnivores and eventually small insects and bacteria. Now we have lawyers, doctors and bill collectors. I don’t see much of a difference.
