  1. Smith is all over the map in this rant. He argues that only single payer type health care systems would ration health care dollars. This is, of course, nonsense. Health care is rationed right now by all kinds of influences, including your insurance company.

    Although it is difficult for some to admit, we live in a finite world. There are not infinite dollars available for anything, including health care. There is rationing of health care now and there will be in the future.

    Do you perform a $500,000 procedure on a 95 year old comatose patient on a ventilator, who has advanced Alzheimers disease, who no longer knows he is alive, and whose best prognosis is that you will extend his life for two weeks?

    This is clearly not the best way to spend limited health care dollars, even though you may philosophically be in favor of doing the utmost for every patient no matter what his condition is.

    And yes, making decisions like these indeed constitute "rationing," like it or not -- and these decisions are made every day by compassionate medical professionals.
