The Face of Rationed Care

Nicole Kurokawa Neily

I've written in the past about what Canada's single-payer health care system looks like - and frighteningly, as America moves closer to that model, we run the risk of their outcomes, as well, which include delayed care and denied care.

Our friends at the Independence Institute in Colorado have just produced a short video telling the story of Lin Gilbert, a 27 year-old mother whose health problems took years to remedy. Check it out:

As the video reminds us: If Obama Care passes, could Lin's story be yours? Controlling costs in the future will be an inevitable part of the government's plan, and when they're paying for care and they deny it, there will be no appeals. Whose care will be sacrificed, and at what price?
