Health reform must help everyone

(Continued)



Every business operates that way. The only system that’s different is the government. Incompetence isn’t rewarded, but it’s not eliminated either.

The point here is simple. We’re citizens of the greatest and most envied country in the world. We’re falling behind the rest of the world in things we shouldn’t.

I believe our country should be home to the most educated and healthiest people this world has to offer. You can disagree with me, but I don’t understand why you would.

Harsha Gurujal lives in Danville. He has been a candidate for Danville alderman in the past.

  • Don't delay decisions about care In many instances, full treatment is provided even when these measures are futile. In the instance of maintaining life sustaining treatments when they are futile, the cost is even greater than a monetary value. At some point, the quality of life needs to outweigh the quantity. With a terminal diagnosis, treatments to extend life incur a great cost to suffering for the patient and for the family of the patient.
