Health Care Comments

I had a post last February entitled Magick Is Expensive about the cost of health care and looking for future treatments.
Once a treatment is available, we believe it should be available generally. It seems unfair to us at some deep level that one should live and one should die simply because the former has money and the latter doesn’t. It seems to contradict Life, Liberty, and the Purfuit of Happinefs. Unfortunately, making magic affordable for all is also an excellent way to insure that there will be less magic in the future for all of us, at any price. By removing the economic incentive, we pronounce a death sentence on all those whose disease advances before the cure is invented.
Recently, Tech Central Station has three articles on similar topics.
Congressional Cures? and
The Harmful Side Effect We Never Hear About, both by Dr. Henry I. Miller
The Five Big Questions About Health Care, by Arnold Kling

After which you'll be like, educated and everything.

You know, A.V.I., if innovative and expensive treatments are restricted to those who can afford the additional expense. One effect of that policy would be that the new and improved complications and side effects would be restricted to those who might be able to afford that additional expense, too. Is this a bad thing?
