    total agreement, in  principle, that we must ration.  And yes, we do so now, in the sense that some folks are "rationed out of the system." And that's absolutely unacceptable.

    Heck, I've spent my entire professional career fighting for these folks.

    Now, I will continue to read all available material regarding "best practices," as they apply to the ACA.  I guess you could call my approach (I truly hate quoting Reagan, of all people) "Trust, but verify."  Hopefully, the handful of healthcare advocacy organizations that exist, will be vigilant in doing so, also.  If they are, there will be nothing to worry about, IMO.

    And thanks for the links.  I'll add them to my library of links.  Please share anymore that you discover.

    I follow a couple of health economists, a couple of medical websites, and the Kaiser Health News website, as best my limited time allows.

    And thank you for bringing up this topic.  Folks need to 'get over their fear' of rationing healthcare.  It's here to stay.
