Health Policy Professor Discusses The 'Cost-Benefit' Of Elderly Receiving Federal Healthcare

Thanks to Lee Habeeb for bringing this to my attention. Today on C-SPAN, the Senate Finance Committee is holding a hearing on healthcare reform. One of the fears associated with Obama's healthcare reform is what Stuart Altman so candidly discussed here: What are the costs and benefits to giving federal money to an elderly person who needs an expensive procedure and has a shorter life span than someone who needs the same procedure in their 20s?

When we are no longer responsible for our healthcare and the government is, they must consider these kinds of "cost-benefit" questions.

Don't tell me government healthcare will be free.
