If health care was a boat named Titanic …

Titanic health careI had a thought today. “What if health care in the United States was a little boat known as the Titanic?”

The first thing I realized is that rich old white men would probably be the owners of all the lifeboats so they’d be tasked with determining the order of loading those lifeboats. I’m sure they’d be completely fair and unbiased about it.

Rich old white men safely loaded onto lifeboats. Check!

After that, though, what then? I’d assume pregnant women and young children would still get some consideration regardless of their scrilla status.

After that, the remaining folks would be prioritized by wealth and in an indirect way, pretty much by race as well. That’s an excellent way to do it, right?

Bringeth forth thy pith and vinegar
