    How much should Medicare spend on a very expensive drug to keep a terminal patient alive for a year?

    If the person wanted to live for that year, as much as necessary. A person's right to live should have no price on it. Where would we draw the line? Who would decide? What time limit would you put on someone's life? Many people are given diagnoses with time lines and live far past those time lines. Is it fair to deprive them of medications that could help extend their lives or add to the quality of their lives simply because of cost? I say no! Human's have a right to life! A constitutional one!
