The Prince and the Paupers

Dr. Dalrymple on the pauperization of British citizens when it comes to healthcare.
Not coincidentally, the U.K. is by far the most unpleasant country in which to be ill in the Western world. Even Greeks living in Britain return home for medical treatment if they are physically able to do so.

The government-run health-care system—which in the U.K. is believed to be the necessary institutional corollary to an inalienable right to health care—has pauperized the entire population. This is not to say that in every last case the treatment is bad: A pauper may be well or badly treated, according to the inclination, temperament and abilities of those providing the treatment. But a pauper must accept what he is given.
What was the president saying about blue pills and red pills and your neighbor getting the same car for $6,000? Turns out we're talking about very different cars.

One thing missing in the "new" universal health care is it's largesse, It is ripe for corruption, the likes that has never been seen before. Imagine if you will, it's overall cost, (Trillions) and then factor in it's loses through theft and brother you are now talking about a bankrupt America at it's largest level!!
Since the government can not protect us from the oil barons, how do you suppose they are going to protect us from the health thiefs? Government run anything, is ripe for the most dishonest behavior at all levels!
