California to Pay $5400 to Make Poor Sick People Dead – National Review

Without fanfare or announcement, Governor Brown’s proposed 2016 Budget recommends $2.3 million dollars to allow California to purchase lethal drugs for Medi-Cal patients who want their physician to help them commit suicide. California would pay an estimated $5,400 per patient just for the drugs yet Medi-Cal patients still have no access to palliative care (designed to improve the quality of life for patients and their family facing serious illnesses.) Even more incredibly, a recent study has shown that Medi-Cal recipients have only a one in three chance of even getting cancer treatments under the system and often cannot obtain second opinions.

This is the future of medical care in this country.  Single-payer, government controlled.  Constant shortages of everything.  Once you take an industry and make it part of command economy (ie “free”), shortages are automatic.  Demand soars and incentive to produce falls.  But understanding that would require passing high school economics.

And so you, the “useless eaters” as the elites refer to us as, are given the generous option of killing yourself instead of getting cancer treatments.

I’ll be accused of hyperbole, but mark my words, this is the future of healthcare in this country unless people fight.
