    Well, let's put it this way; "living will" should be honored, if nothing else. It isn't, and the suffering is real...it's heartbreaking.

    You have NO idea what business is about. It is not a charity... businesses survive when they make a lot of profit... then they can hire to grow and expand. You tax them...YOU PAY THE TAX!!!! YOU PAY THE TAX!!!! YOU... ALWAYS YOU... FOREVER... YOU.

    This is something our school systems have failed to teach... LIFE 101.

    It wouldn't even have to be decided on an individual basis in many cases. E.g., there will be no coverage of treatment of medical problems that are caused by obesity if your BMI is north of _____. There will be no coverage of treatment of medical problems beyond the average life expectancy (which means it's up to you to save money for life-prolongation beyond that age). Things like that can just be universal rules. They may seem inhumane, but there is nothing "humane" about yanking money from anywhere we can find it to fund this desperate spare-no-expense free-for-all that we erroneously call "insurance."

    Everyone should have that decision left to them.

    The reason is most likely the cost. Why go to where costs are highest in the world?

    For the reason you implicitly identify. Because it is higher quality. If you want to survive cancer; you come to the United States. If you want a difficult bypass or neurological procedure, you come to the United States. If you want to get care quickly rather than waiting for months on end, you come to the United States. And it ain't just the wealthy - feel free to peruse those links.

    Is it really higher quality?

    Why to citizens of this country engage in medical tourism if we have the best care right here at home?

    I can understand, that for a child, you would go bankrupt and pay anything to extend the life of a young one. However, when someone is 80 plus, and every organ is kicking out, one by one, the lungs, the kidney, the circulation, the leg amputated, eyesight, hearing, et al., and they are Mom or Dad that you have loved all of your life, it's a different thing.

    Yes, there are 80 somethings who are alive and well, and have another whatever years to go, but I am not talking about them.

    I am talking about the end-time, when and unless, death is obviated from the planet, it's one of the most difficult times of a person's life; to bear witness to the ones you love, dying.

    I am not saying that I'd be able to do any different...but I'd have liked a choice.

    I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. Voltaire

    You should really check in on the requirements for medicaid in some states.
