Healthcare rationing rhetoric overlooks reality
"Rationing" has become a rejoinder to anyone who says that the U.S. must reduce its runaway health spending, especially by anyone who favors cutting back on treatments that don't have scientific evidence behind them, says David Leonhardt in this article for the New York Times. Leonhardt says that rationing is not really a substantive argument, but instead "a clever set of buzzwords that tries to hide the fact that societies must make choices."
