    Rationing should occur.....BUT....lets be careful here, super careful..
    I'm 73 , Cheneys age, and IMO, I am as good as he.
    Most would disagree, and for good reason....
    Death panel ?? ...I have VA care, this has never been mentioned, BUT, I do have a "living will"..
    For certain, we cannot have conservative extremists dictating our health care....nor liberal extremists....
    Health care...we should copy the German system, they have had two centuries to perfect their "socialistic" health care system..

    Quite understandable....I have seen where doctors and hospital overcharge horribily...these claims should be denied....if this is true..

    back in the states 'quality' healthcare seems a bit much of a claim, long wait times even with an appointment, hurried examinations, mumbled talk of tests, and out the door. Heaven help ya if you don't have insurance, you will spend all day waiting.

    Expensive health care I'll agree with. But I guess quality, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder...
    To me, this post has far greater meaning than those of wealthy conservatives....
    Thank you...
    And, yes, our health care system can be improved, by a ton....it may be fine for the rich....frankly, I care not an iota about them....its the people..
