HEALTH CARE IS RATIONED BY INSURERS
Posted by politicalpartypooper on July 22, 2009
One of the biggest lies the Right has been telling America about any Universal or Public Option for health care reform is that if there is a government option, sooner or later health care will be rationed.
I now invite you, if you are one of the people that still has insurance coverage, to open your plan handbook to the section entitled, “Exclusions and Omissions”. You see, that’s the rationing part of your health insurance coverage. It’s legal, because they tell you about it up front (well, not really up front, as most exclusion sections are generally found in the rear of your handbook, and no insurance agent is going to inform you of all the exclusions verbally).
But, Pooper! If we have a Gubment plan, sooner or later, our health care is going to be rationed!
You have my sympathy, truly. But, since you seem to be surviving under health care rationing already, I don’t see what the big deal is. Sooner or later? How about you try saying, “Way sooner than fifty years ago!” For as long as private health insurers have run the show, your health care has been rationed. And the tired, old fear that life saving techniques may be withheld due to costs is already here. Your insurance company most likely refuses to pay for anything they consider experimental; like bone marrow transplants, or such.
