Government health care will be rationed

Soon the U.S. Supreme Court will render its decision on the constitutionality of the health care law. Regardless of how they rule, my concerns revolve around the practicality of government health care.

I was born in Canada, lived there more than half my life, and trust me the government will ration your health care. Just recently my 70-year-old brother in law was having difficulty with his legs. Over a two month period, he got to see two doctors, neither of which could diagnose his problem or offer a cure. One of them did suggest an MRI, but the government does not cover this procedure for seniors. So if he wanted the MRI, he would have to pay for it with his own money, a cost of $ 700.

So imagine that, ObamaCare believers, the government will deny you certain procedures.. Be careful what you wish for.
