Step 2: By limiting resources (you have to do this, you cant' afford anything else) you informally begin rationing health care. People die while waiting for care.
Step 3: Introduce rationing of health care in a potentially palatable way. Blame it on the patient.
Step 4: Formalize rationing of health care through legislation.
Step 5: Discontinue health care benefits for those who are "too old." Why waste the money?
Step 6: "Allow" euthanasia.
Step 7: "Encourage" euthanasia. As in "Don't you want to do your part for your descendants?"
Step 8: Legislate euthanasia. I mean, didn't you see the movie?
