Speaking of Rationing...

We are a long ways off from rationing energy, but health care? We are warned by partisans that if we pass any kind of health reform, rationing will inevitably result.

We already ration health care. Why do you think we have scenes like this in the United States?

From the Washington Post:

This is not an arguable proposition. It is not a difference of opinion, or a conversation about semantics. We ration. We ration without discussion, remorse or concern. We ration health care the way we ration other goods: We make it too expensive for everyone to afford.

As supported by surveys and data that ought to be front page news on every reputable newspaper. Headline: We Already Ration Health Care.

You're right. Anyone with insurance knows it's already rationed.
