I was asked today what I would do if I got really sick, like was diagnosed with diabetes or some other chronic condition...I mean isn't it horrible that I don't have my goverment to pay for what I will need to help me.
That's such a totally misleading argument.
So only the government can help me? I can't work and pay for what I need? The current system can't be tweeked to bring down the costs of healthcare making it something I can afford.
Why should anything be free? Seriously ask yourself the following question: should what you do for a living be regulated so that you can get that service for free or almost nothing? Why is it more fair for you to get that service for nothing while the person offering that service has to scrape by on the lowly salary. It's not fair or even-handed at all. It's the exact flip flop.
All that does is make more cash for the person seeking the service by taking away the cash from the person offering the service. Still one person has less. How is that fair?
And if you still think that the British system is the cat's meow read this news:
A sample of recent headlines from the three leading British newspapers, the Times, the Daily Mail and the Telegraph, bear out Mr. Hannan's warning:
• NHS targets 'may have lead to 1,200 deaths' in Mid-Staffordshire
• 11 serious errors a day in NHS surgery
• War hero refused treatment by NHS
• Patients forced to live in agony after NHS refuses to pay for painkilling injections
• Patients with suspected cancer forced to wait so NHS targets can be hit
• NHS dentists play as patients wait
Here's More Health Care Nonsense.
