THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS FREE LUNCH IN HEALTH-CARE
The U.K. Daily Telegraph reports on the persistent sentiments to limit and ration the access to health-care services for older people and individuals with different lifestyles. As Investor Business Daily succinctly commented, the denial of health-care services is more probable when government is in charge of it. In fact, government monopoly on health-care might explain some reasons for obesity and other particular man-made diseases simply because the individuals do not, in this case, bear full costs of reckless behavior and instead rely on government support.
