ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the prevalent problem of self-rationing in vital healthcare services in the U.S. According to the author, critics of healthcare reform have been arguing that the reform's objective is to cut spending by limiting access to necessary care. He notes that the self-imposed rationing can be attributed to a troubled economy. He cites a blog which highlighted a survey on the impact of high unemployment rate on access to healthcare.
