    That system wanted to deny them an opportunity to try other treatments on their dime not the state's. You like that idea?

    Your solution is to bring more poor people into the country to over burden a system already in trouble. I hear your leftie pals boast about bringing in many millions more.

    When the treatment is little more than paying out a million dollars to offer their child as a guinea-pig in a trial that hasn't even been done on mice, I love that idea. Is the doctor doing it for the child or the cash?

    the doctor in question is out for the cash...


    just like sinking 21 million into one patient in one year is the doctors/hospital out for the cash....from the government... ie tax payers.

    Agreed. It's time we joined the rest of the civilized world.

    This half ass healthcare system the health insurance lobbies have shoved down our throats is not working and never will work.

    I'm curious as to how you weighed in on the Charlie Gard situation.

    The Reason is because of the very attitude found in the OP.. IT COST TOO MUCH TO KEEP THEM ALIVE so the Government refuses care and or treatments. Simple as that. Both are based on the Complete lives system, you are over 55 or under 10 years of age, your care is massively rationed
    That is so lacking in DETAIL and TRUTH, I refuse to waste keystrokes to FLESH IT OUT. Suffice to say it is about 90% bullshit.

    Well, that is rather simplistic. It is a feature of a society that values human life. I know that is unfashionable in the US, but other countries tend to look after their citizens in the belief that life has value.

    Perhaps it is a Christian thing that has fallen by the wayside as it devolves into a cult of hate?
