Thanks to Erick Erickson at Redstate for putting this out there.
Here’s the story of a government (state of Oregon) run health care system that told a woman they wouldn’t pay for her life-saving chemotherapy drugs, but would be happy to pay for a physician assisted suicide! It can and will happen in the single-payer system Obama and the Democrats are trying to force us into.
“If we invest thousands of dollars in one person’s days to weeks, yet…we are taking those dollars away from someone,” says the chairman of the Commission that sets policy for the Oregon health plan.
Oh. Who do you think offered to supply the woman with the drugs, free of charge?
The big, mean pharmaceutical company that makes the drug.
So the government health care system is really the bad guy, the pharma company the good.
