Grouch,

You and I both know that I wasn't talking about terminally ill people where doctors have determined that there is absolutely nothing else that can be done. I was talking about elderly people who can return to productive, full lives if they are not denied a certain operation or badly needed drug. One small example. An otherwise healthy 82 year-old man who started a profitable small business after retirement finds out he has terminal liver disease and unless he gets a liver transplant in the next six months he will die. He is fortunate and gets a transplant of a donated liver. The doctor tells him he must have a certain drug that will prevent his body from rejecting the new liver. He finds out that Medicare will not pay for it for folks over 80 years of age. He also finds out that he must take this drug for at least 9 months and his cost would be about $25,000 per month. There is no way he can do that. What would you say then if this were you? Just let me die and get ready to board the 'afterlife' train?
