ABSTRACT
The author comments on the health care rationing proposed by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. Based on the so-called complete lives system advocated by presidential healthcare advisor Doctor Ezekiel Emanuel, the societal worth of the patient according to the government will serve as the basis of the allocation of health care. In the author's view, the system considers the young and the old as less worthy of health care. Also noted are the tactics of the administration to avoid complicity in rationing.
