Ezekiel J. Emanuel

Pour certains, les systèmes de santé socialistes sont préférables aux régimes privés parce que dans un système universel de santé, tous les gens ont un accès équitable à des soins de qualité sans égard à leur condition. Vraiment ? Déclaration d’Ezekiel J. Emanuel (ici & ici), le conseiller du président Obama pour la réforme du système de santé américain:

« Services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed. An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia. […]

Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Treating 65-year-olds differently because of stereotypes or falsehoods would be ageist; treating them differently because they have already had more life-years is not.«

Obama approval rating sinks to 50 per cent: poll
Sydney Morning Herald

US President Barack Obama’s approval rating has slumped to 50 per cent, the lowest since his inauguration, according to a poll released on the eve of his 200th day in office.

Pollsters at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut said Obama’s job approval rating dipped to 50-42 per cent, a reflection of growing unease over his handling of the economy.

The figure, released on Thursday, is a substantial drop from the 57-33 per cent approval rating he had on July 2, and far less than the glowing numbers he enjoyed in the honeymoon first 100 days of his tenure.

The national poll of 2409 registered voters was carried out between July 27 and August 3. It found voters disapproved 49-45 per cent of the way Obama was handling the economy, and disapproved 52-39 per cent on his handling of health care, but approved 52-38 per cent on his foreign policy.

On July 21, a USA Today/Gallup poll found Obama’s approval rating was 55 per cent six months into his presidency, one point lower than that of his predecessor George Bush at the same point in his tenure.
