This is not supposed to be US. We don’t give up. If something isn’t working we put our best and brightest on the problem and find a solution.
I agree with you that it’s horrible for the taxpayers or insurance policy holders to pay a ton of money to try to save one life (especially when the odds are so low), but WE don’t throw away our basic morality and values when things get tough.
We cling to those values while we dig until we find a better way.
THAT is the USA. That is the America that I know.
No one ever said this quandary was an easy one with a simple and fair solution....if it was we’d have a solution by now. My take on the matter is basically you can have all the high tech medical wonders administered to you and yours that you desire.....if you can pay for it. Anything else is fundamentally unfair, fundamentally socialism.
