ObamaCare supporters are now waging a high-profile public relations campaign to make medical rationing palatable to the general public. The latest front is the opinion pages of the New York Times, which recently published two Op-Eds openly advocating medical rationing.
Rationing is inevitable whenever the government controls medical spending. Under ObamaCare, government control of health spending will quickly expand to affect most Americans, not only the elderly.
Note that we don’t debate how to ration cellphones. That’s because our relatively free market has driven cellphone prices so low that even many of the poorest Americans can afford one. The free market can also work in health care.
This November, American voters will have one final opportunity to decide whether or not to go down the road of “inevitable” government medical rationing. The rationing advocates have given us fair warning of their intentions. How we respond to that warning will be up to us.
