Unfortunately, I find myself writing for money and not for fun (grants due in less than 4 weeks). However, I will take the opportunity to introduce you to my sources. I really enjoy reading Jonathan Cohn. He blogs for The New Republic on economic and health care issues and first articulated the plan to get the Affordable care Act passed. His latest in-depth blog on healthcare rationing is here and the notable quote follows:

Rationing is already a fixture of our health care system. It happens every time an insurer says no to a treatment. It happens every time a doctor or hospital recommends against a procedure because it doesn’t seem worth the cost. And it happens every time somebody forgoes care because it’s too expensive.
