Health Care Rationing

Posted in economics by ittecon on January 5, 2011

Opposition to health-care rationing is a little like opposition to growing up. It sounds great. It’s just not very practical.

A society’s resources are always limited. So we have to make choices about what we can afford and what we can’t. Not everyone can afford to own a vacation home — which means vacation homes are rationed. Not everyone can afford to live in towns with excellent public schools — which means that good public education is rationed.

    If you think health care rationing is not already happening and more is not inevitable you’re being irrational.
