    That is actually a very good article and brings up alot of very valid points. I definitely think that alcoholics who have drunk themselves to death should not get a liver transplant over someone else who needs one who is not an alcoholic. But at the same time that I say that, I also don't think it is good to decide medical care based on ones lifestyle.

    Honestly, I am torn on this one. I know that the cost of healthcare is rising due to the lifestyle people make and something must be done but this is not the answer either. Preventive care needs to increase.

    I have more to say on this but just can't think right now. I am so tired that I need to hit the hay.

    So, what do you all think? I know that I have posted many times my support of national healthcare, but I am open to many options. I just don't see a solution yet. All I know is that we are not on the right tracks as of right now. Insurance companies are only in it for the money and I just don't think anyone should make a profit off of the sick. Plain and simple.

    So what exactly do you Republicans out there claim to be a solution? I am all ears?

    The problem is you're starting to play god (deciding who lives and who does not) and whenever that happens, it always ends up being a mess.

    Nope!! Not broke yet!! Everytime they get close to broke they raise taxes on something. Canada's medical system wont be broke till it's citizens are broke from excessive taxation...........

    You'd be hard pressed to find a surgeon to transplant a liver into an active alcoholic.
