..no reform ever addresses the root cause of what ails U.S. health care: The nearly universal demand for unlimited medical care, with the bill sent to somebody else through the political process.

Americans simply don't want to face the harsh reality that, like any other good or service, health care is finite and must be rationed. If it is not rationed through prices set by the marketplace, it will be rationed through rules set by the bureaucracy. At some point, one or the other is going to say no. And that's the one word nobody in politics is ever allowed to say.

Every time I try to tell this to my American friends - that our life is not infinite, and no amount of resources can keep us alive and healthy forever, I hear just silence.

The conservation laws are still there no matter what you do. Communism (to each according to his or her needs), somewhat not unlike the concept of paradise in the Abrahamic religions, requires a near-infinite supply of energy, which is not presently available to us humans.

People, however, are perfectly free to believe the big government will do the best possible job rationing and regulating. There does not, to the best of my understanding, exist an argument against that said belief backed by fundamental laws of nature.
