Rigging the System


"If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it's free!" -- P. J. O'Rourke

Getting the State involved in medicine is criminal malpractice.

'Free government health care seems like a good deal. After all, what's better than 'free'? But of course deep down everyone understands that nothing of value is free. If it's 'free' somebody else pays.

Then there is the issue of quality. The old aphorism, "You get what you pay for" is widely recognized for a reason. For one example, government education is 'free' but often (all too often) of poor quality with dismal results and high cost.

Denying lifesaving care to conserve public resources is nothing new for Britain’s National Health Service. 

In expensive treatments for cancer and other diseases, the health service officially limits what it will spend to postpone a death: 30,000 pounds, or about $37,000, for each year of full “quality” life provided to a patient.

For some examples of free government single payer health care follow these links:

Canada:

As with any other limited resource, healthy care must be rationed. Private health insurance rations based on the insurance policy contract. Government health care is rationed based on government policy. Canada has single payer government health care for all. It also has 'Expert Committees' to make policy on what is paid for and what is not. Such policy bodies ration care based on what they deem to be in the interests of 'society' instead of the 'individual'.

"I see the liberty of the individual ... as the necessary condition for the flowering of all the other goods that mankind cherishes: moral virtue, civilization, the arts and sciences, economic prosperity. Out of liberty, then, stem the glories of civilized life.” Murray Rothbard
