Caring for Words about Limiting Care

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the detailed, cogent, and well-referenced Rationing Is Not a Four-Letter Word: Setting Limits on Healthcare, Phillip Rosoff takes up an emotion-laden entrenched argument as challenging as iPhone purchasing for teens-trying to convince a skeptical public and medical profession that "rationing" is just fine. According to Rosoff, despite its near expletive status, the "R word"-the much-maligned third rail of American health policy-is an inevitable and sensible choice for the future of health care in the United States. It is-rather like the iPhone 4S-good enough, much cheaper, and really not that bad.
