Should the government have the right to decide who lives and who dies?

There will never be enough funds for everyone to ever get all the medical treatment they require. So why should the government get to pick who lives and who dies? Shouldn't the person with the greatest benefit to society be able to live? If some crackhead on the street gets life support and a man with a family is turned away and told to go die, how could you live with yourself?

    there grow to be a learn achieved that 30% of medical expenditures come from the final 60 days of your existence. So on condition that government well-being care isn't mandatory and the only reason Obama needs this handed is as a results of the fact they want a hand in the earnings of this money cow, i could presume that well-being look after the ill and absence of existence would be eradicated. undergo in suggestions, Obama desires to bypass a invoice previously its even achieved or printed. communicate a pair of crime against democracy. in case you may bypass expenditures previously its achieved and persons have not had a raffle to study it, you may to boot declare obama a dictator and commence calling him your fuhrer. remark to Beverly - Your complaining approximately Bonuses? Bonuses are pennies to what our flesh pressers are laying aside of the financial device.

    Maybe the government should be the decider as representative of the people. George Bush famously said he was the decider, though it wasn't about this topic. I don't think it should be someone like you who thinks it is so easy to distinguish who deserves life and who doesn't. Who exactly would decide according to you, you?

    Its not the Government that makes that decision, its the free market. Its whoever can afford it the most.

    Only the very rich, including CEOs and drug lords can afford the best of all care.

    You're acting like most of the first world hasn't had universal medical care for decades. Take a look around, what you're describing isn't happening anywhere.

    The government indirectly decides that every day as it decides what funds to grant to projects, how student loans are handled, etc.

    Why should the markets?

    Yes... yes... I'm well aware of economic theories according to which you end up obtaining the exact value of your input into society.

    I'm also aware of the fact in reality, that's complete hogwash.
