The States Have Begun Rationing Health Care

United States map SC The States Have Begun Rationing Health Care

The truth is that rationing exists in any market. No entity, be it an individual or a business or the government, can provide an infinite supply of something on a finite budget. At some point, there will be rationing, because at some point somebody has to pay for what you’re getting.

So the question, in terms of the health care market, isn’t whether or not there will be rationing. The question is who controls the rationing. As Americans become more and more dependent on government health care, whether it be through programs like Medicaid or Medicare or because we’re herded onto government-approved health insurance policies through Obamacare, the government gets more of a say in our health care.

Case in point, the clamp-down by the states on prescriptions available through Medicaid programs:

( – Sixteen states have set a limit on the number of prescription drugs they will cover for Medicaid patients, according to Kaiser Health News.

Seven of those states, according to Kaiser Health News, have enacted or tightened those limits in just the last two years.

Medicaid is a federal program that is carried out in partnership with state governments. It forms an important element of President Barack Obama’s health-care plan because under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act–AKA Obamcare–a larger number of people will be covered by Medicaid, as the income cap is raised for the program.

  1. Disgusted says:

    After a while here, they are going to “ration” who lives and who dies. It depends on who is worth saving, and who isn’t. I’d advise everyone to be ready to die, because that is what is coming. Those of us who do not bow and kiss the arse of this infected, disease ridden peice of mu SLIME filth, and are not “productive” to his way of thinking, will be on the List of Those Who Die. If you are old, have problems, are mentally “challanged” or any number of unacceptables, you can bet your life will be shortened, if you should happen to need medical care, you simply will not get any care at all. Be told to go and die, and that will be it. Welcome to this “healthSCARE” world we are now entering, if this Disease in Office, this trash from someone’s toxic waste site is re-elected. God let Romney win, he is all we have in order to at least rid ourselves of this Arrogant Peice of Filth, this mu SLIME FILTH!!!!! If I didn’t like Romney because of his religion, I’d get over it real fast, because I prefer a peaceable Morman any day to a MURDERING MU SLIME!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What Nancy Pelosi didn't want us to know until after the healthcare bill was passed. Remember she said, "pass it and then read it!!." Here it is!
    Obama Care Highlighted by Page Number
    Judge Kithil of Marble Falls, TX – highlighted the most egregious pages of HB3200
    Please read this…….. especially the reference to pages 58 & 59JUDGE KITHIL wrote:
    Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.
    Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual's bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

    • Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now – ACORN).
      Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?)
      Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees.
      Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age.
      Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.

      • Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every five years. (Death counseling..)
        Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
        HAD ENOUGH???? Judge Kithil then goes on to identify:
        "Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of Congress. Members of Congress are already exempt from the Social Security system, and have a well-funded private plan that covers their retirement needs. If they were on our Social Security plan, I believe they would find a very quick 'fix' to make the plan financially sound for their future."
