This Is What Our President Wants For Us?

From Mark Steyn:

Okay, You Don't Like the Term 'Death Panels' . . .

. . . so how about "life-and-death panels"?

Dany Mercado, a leukemia patient from Kitchener, Ontario, is cancer-free after getting a bone marrow transplant at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit.

Told by Canadian doctors in 2007 he couldn't have the procedure there, Mercado's family and doctor appealed to Ontario health officials, who agreed to let him have the transplant in Detroit in January 2008.

I am trying to wrap my head around this. Mr. Mercado couldn't receive life saving treatment in his own (advanced) country, but he needed permission to receive treatment in the United States?

And, where will our loved ones go when their treatment is refused here?
