Obamacares emphasis on cost-benefit has apparently granted permission for the medical technocrats to conjure all kinds of healthcare rationing schemes.
And the Medical Establishment is apparently playing along. From, The Cancer Death-Panel App, by Robert Goldberg in the NY Post:
The latest innovation in cancer care isnt a medical breakthrough but an app to ration new drugs. Itll measure care in terms of what it costs health plans, instead of what it means for patients lives.
That its being developed under the auspices of the American Society for Clinical Oncology, or ASCO, the worlds leading oncology association, is a grim warning about the state of organized medicine.
The app will use an algorithm like those many health plans apply to limit access to innovative treatments. Wellpoint Inc., for one, measures cost-effectiveness by comparing the benefits, side effects and costs of various treatments for specific types of cancer. The ASCO app uses the same benchmarks.
So, it is the end of treating patients as individuals, as we expand healthcare into areas that dont treat illness but expensively enable desired lifestyles.
We are all just cattle now. Mooo.
Read the entire column. It is very sobering.

I am sure one input into this app is your voter registration.
If you put in R or conservative, the app will immediately decide you don’t need any treatment.
Does this mean the end of expensive medical care for homosexuals, who contract their disease through their life style? Of course not. They are a favored group.
Sara Palin was right.
If this app works like the rest of government software, we’re going to have a lot of dead 20-year-olds lying around. Of course, congressmen and Muslims are exempt.
What we need is a “Obama scandal app”...An app that has up to the minute new Obama scandals which seem to fly out every second.
Who needs Death Panels when SkyNet can do the same exact thing so much better?
Cancer has been cured. I, for one, am sick to death of the corrupt medical establishment and want to have as little to do with them as possible.
Yes, folks don’t take my word for it research it yourselves. Google and read as much as you can about DMSO. Google and read about the DMSO cancer clinic in Tulsa, OK and their cure rate, for $12,000 you can go home cured and undamaged by th poison called chemotherapy.
Here’s a good place to start:
God bless all of you and God bless FREE REPUBLIC.
Sebelius already said they go to the front of the line since they have been discriminated against in the past.
This should not surprise anyone given the sum total of all of the lawless ones works.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to read the whole article yet. I tried twice. The second time, I got the blue screen. I don’t know if my computer is the problem, but I’ve been having a lot of trouble with websites these days. :-(
