California Decides Killing Poor, Sick People Is More Cost Effective Than Helping Them

California’s health care system is including money in the budget to assist poor, sick people in committing suicide; but not money for palliative care, or money to treat their terminal illnesses.

Without fanfare or announcement, Governor Brown’s proposed 2016 Budget recommends $2.3 million dollars to allow California to purchase lethal drugs for Medi-Cal patients who want their physician to help them commit suicide. California would pay an estimated $5,400 per patient just for the drugs yet Medi-Cal patients still have no access to palliative care (designed to improve the quality of life for patients and their family facing serious illnesses.) Even more incredibly, a recent study has shown that Medi-Cal recipients have only a one in three chance of even getting cancer treatments under the system and often cannot obtain second opinions

Killing poor people because treating them is too expensive; kind of thought that’s what evil insurance companies were supposed to do. Not progressive Governments run by compassionate leftists.
