    Sorry Wiley, but I don’t think that this comic will make much sense outside of the United States.

    Who wants to push unnecessary procedures if they don’t think they’ll get paid ?

    And critics of Socialized Medicine say that the US Health Care Market doesn’t have any rationing of services.

    He’s got an HMO – what’s not to understand?

    Some health care services just aren’t rational.

    Credit ratings make a lot of sense for us Asians…and probably much more for Europeans.

    The Doc’s oath applies only to the insurance company.

    Somebody’s confused. Obama care doesn’t start until 2014 does it?

    @Tigger
    You’re behind the curve it’s happening now and youcan’t blame it on Obama since his plan doesn’t even stat till 2014.
    Guess you’ll have to get your information from someone other than a birdbrain or other Fox listener.

    It’s happening right now, and it has always happened. Whenever demand exceeds the supply (and you can always want more healthcare than you’re getting), rationing is the only possible result.
    .
    A free market rations scarce goods and services based on your ability to pay. (Or to wait in line. Time really is money.) Can’t afford the money or waiting time to get your meds? Tough cookies…Darwin FTW.
    .
    An administrative system run by insurance companies, which we have now, rations health care based on arbitrary (hopefully professional) judgment by nameless-faceless corporate bureaucrats, and profitability for its stockholders. Some patients get everything they need when they need it; others eventually get something that may or may not be enough; and still others (the uninsured) get nothing.
    .
    A governmental system, “socialized medicine” in some flavor, rations healthcare based on arbitrary (hopefully professional) judgment by nameless-faceless government bureaucrats, and impersonal regulations. At its best, everyone gets something like what they need, hopefully soon enough to help, and no one is frozen out completely.
    ,
    Are we clear, now? There is no perfect system, and you always have rationing. The only difference is who gets left out and what happens to them — and what our consciences can live with.

    Well said Scaaty! The nice thing about the current system is if you can come up with the money, you can get service now. With Government run, you almost always wait in line.
