Re: Critical care: Satire on socialized medicine?

*puts on healthcare administrator hat*

Obamacare is *not* socialized medicine. Doctors & hospitals & insurance companies are still independent entities.

What the society in "Critical Care" did was the extreme version of the US system: it rationed care based on the patient's social status.

In the US, care is rationed based on the patient's ability to pay for it--which is more likely the higher one's social status.
