or America will be bankrupt. Real life example: I know a gravely ill man who is intimately aware of the prognosis for inoperable grade 4 glioblastoma. He refuses to declare himself a no code which means if he lapses into respiratory failure, he wants to be tubed and ventilated. His chances of survival are 0. Who will pay for that? In the public option, someone will have to tell him, NO. I also understand that in the public option a person does not have to enroll in the plan until they get sick. Anyone see why that won't work?
