ABSTRACT
The article presents a critique of the cover story of "Newsweek" magazine entitled "The Case for Killing Granny Curbing Excessive End-of-Life Care is Good for America." Doctor Ezekiel Emanuel explains that it is not discrimination to discriminate against older people in favor of young people since young people have more years of life ahead of them than older people. Emanuel says that treatments that matched the patient's goals and wishes will eventually save the government 6 billion dollars.
