    assertion that implementing financial barriers to health care prevents as much necessary as unnecessary care. The case of your brother (my deepest condolences) is one of the most egregious outcomes of our "consumer driven" system. People like Ryan want to move our system even further in this direction stating that it will save, or even control, costs. That is unsupportable both morally and scientifically.
    We need a single-payer financing system with all health care pre-paid. That is both rationally and morally supportable.
