Economic Rationing of Health Care

No death panels for us. Just more uninsured who can’t afford health insurance……and care.

This is happening in Washington State but is not unique:

The Basic Health Plan, which provides subsidized insurance for the 66,000 working poor, gone.

Medicynical Note: It should be noted that Washington State voted down an income tax on high earners and passed an initiative requiring a two thirds majority to increase taxes. So rather than ask those who can afford it to pay more we’ll simply tax those who can’t and remove their safety net.

And if they get sick? Tough love and tough luck.
