Who decides on your medical treatment?

For ever, I have been pointing out the shortcomings of socialized medicine:  what it boils down to is that the one who picks up the tab gets the final say in which treatments gets picked.  And, if that decision is not made by you or your loved ones, but rather by a bureaucrat who does not know you personally, the decisions may not be exactly the ones you might wish…

Thomas Sowell has put this extremely well in his 4-part series:

Whose medical decisions?

Whose medical decisions?, Part II

Whose medical decisions?, Part III

Whose medical decisions?, Part IV

    Thanks for pointing this out. Sowell makes great points.
    Canadians never really got to debate any of this – which is a very sad commentary on our state of freedom.
