Now that the House and Senate have put forth proposals for health care, everyone is sharpening their knives to either attack the proposals, or the ones doing the attacking. Regardless, there are several questions which are not being posed. One which I will deal with at a later date is, how will small business be impacted – and at what cost? The other issue, which few have delved into, is at what cost should we “ethically” provide health care for everyone.
I ran across this thought-provoking article in the New York Times by Peter Singer, who is a professor of bioethics at Princeton University. He is also laureate professor at the University of Melbourne, in Australia. It’s definitely thought-provoking!
