Nothing but campaign rhetoric?
As one who recently enrolled in Medicare, I welcome many of the comments by Rep. Eric Cantor and other Republicans who state that my health care needs must be decided by me and my doctor without “arbitrary constraints on cost.”
While this commitment to what could require unlimited spending to meet my medical needs happily removes the threat to my having to face the dreaded “death panels,” I am not convinced of their sincerity.
Until the Republicans tell me where the money will come from to allow me and my doctor to determine what my best available treatment might be, no matter how expensive, I remain skeptical and view their comments as nothing more than campaign rhetoric.
