CFS: One Disease and Its Costs » White House Chronicle

 
a new one from our good friend Llewellyn King

What would happen to health care if a million new patients with just one of many now incurable and largely untreated diseases flooded the system, relying on medicine that could cost $70,000?

 
It might happen. Actually, it's more than desirable that it should happen.
 
The horror of this affliction is almost indescribable. I've been writing and broadcasting about these patients for several years and never have I seen such extended suffering, lives hollowed out, every tomorrow to be feared, the slightest departure from strict routines of inactivity to be met with punishing suffering.
