rationing healthcare

The GOP always tries to scare voters by saying that any Democratic plan to improve healthcare in this country will result in 'rationing.' Never mind the fact that millions are currently without any healthcare at all... if that's not rationing, what is? Well, here's another instance of rationing:

SPECIAL REPORT: Medicaid threatens to terminate girl's nursing care

You're only hearing about this case because the decision is so extreme, but there are hundreds of similar cases every day... but we don't 'ration' healthcare in this country, do we?
