You would prefer that an "impartial" government panel made that decision?
Or would you prefer that YOU made that decision regarding your loved ones? Or that somebody you loved made that decision about you?
It's personal, Joe. It's damn personal. Between the relative, the survivor and the physician.
At 73, I've had to make that decision more times than I'd like. And it is not for some half-assed government bureaucrat in a federal office 400 miles away to make, dammit!
If you want to abdicate your responsibility, you're free to do it. But don't you dare take that responsibility away from other who are prepared to exercise it, as well.
You undoubtedly trust the insurance company bureaucrat’s more than the government bureaucrat. I see them as the same.
Folks as old as you and I need to grow up and recognize health care resources are limited.
