Betsy McCaughey wrote a terrific piece for the Wall Street Journal
In the June 18, 2008, issue of JAMA, Dr. Emanuel blames the Hippocratic Oath for the "overuse" of medical care: "Medical school education and post graduate education emphasize thoroughness," he writes. "This culture is further reinforced by a unique understanding of professional obligations, specifically the Hippocratic Oath's admonition to 'use my power to help the sick to the best of my ability and judgment' as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of cost or effect on others."
Our country houses approximately 2 Million prisoners. And yahoos are concerned about these people being included in the ObamaCare debacle. http://snipie.com/tdg
What? Our government will consider whether grandma and grandpa are productive citizens when denying medical coverage to them . . . but prisoners get health care! Who exactly is contributing more to society?
