Oregon’s public plan rates medical conditions on the basis of cost-effectiveness, as Obama has admitted this is how his health care plan will operate.
Not that politics will play a part in this or anything, but Oregon ranks tobacco dependence #6 and abortion #41 in priority for taxpayer dollars (out of 680 conditions).
Interesting that things resulting from people’s reckless behavior is considered to be more worthy of taxpayer funds than things like rheumatoid arthritis, emergency appendectomies and people with burns over 10% of their bodies!
