Ezekiel Emmanuel MD, Rahm Emmanuels brother, who is Barack Obamas Special Advisor for Health Policy, is described by the Huffington Post article as engaged in a very important mission: redesigning the US health care system.
Hat tip to Belmont Club
The above starts to describe the protocol for deciding who gets priority of medical treatment.
In short, people who have the most usefulness to the State get priority of treatment (ages 15 thru 40).
Infants get minimal treatment, because the State has not invested anything yet in their education. Old people get minimal treatment because their working lives are over. Observe the graph at the top.
Health care to be allocated to the “socially useful” ping.
PING; spread the word.
The obvious conclusion is that if you are 60+ you can forget about getting any treatment under Obamcare. I wonder if AARP is telling their members about this?
This is why traditional Christian / Judaic values are being aggressively denigrated.
Looking at the chart, this allocation of medical resources will also take care of any short falls in Social Security; only the lucky and genetically sturdy will live to collect.
Why are they scarce?
Address the scarcity and you don’t have to allocate.
Do you want me to post the whole thing from the Lancet? I have it here.
The reduction of people to BIO-ROBOTS
You get to add Disability Adjustment into the Life Year matrix (DALY) when deciding how to allocate care; is this 20 year old bio-robot as useful as the other in need of repair or should I deem it too flawed to repair?
Add the country of manufacture of the bio-robot, and you know what you have.
(This Bio-robot has a mix of German and Israeli parts.)
A “best return on investment” scheme isn’t heath care.
