“We are in the midst of a longevity revolution. Two thirds of all people who ever lived past 65 are alive today.

If we accept the premise that resources available to meet the costs of healthcare are finite, and that continuing to increase dollars allocated for healthcare carries costs for the nation and society, Discuss and summarize your position on the following.
As national policy should we allocate a set level of resources and apply them to achieving the greatest good for the greatest number OR should we adopt the individualist approach of those who are able to pay for health care have access to the benefits and those who cannot pay won’t have access.
