What price Obamacare

Our loved ones can live a bit longer with the kind of critical care we can get in the USA. Obamacare would consign our aged, our weak, our infirm to a death by omission.
One can envision that had the health-care regime now under consideration in Congress already been in place, my friend would have been denied much of the treatment he received in those final six months. What sense does it make, some would argue, to commit so many costly resources to the treatment of a 91-year-old man? Why not offer medication to keep him comfortable and then allow nature to take its course, freeing those health-care dollars for some more vital patient?

From a strictly economic perspective, why indeed?
