The Wonders of Socialized Medicine

Here's a heartwarming story about national health care in Australia that Michael Moore must have missed:

Woman Faces 3-Year Surgery Wait

Ah, the wonders of socialized medicine...

If any recall, just a short time ago many were complaining about substandard care for Veterans in Walter Reed Hospital and other VA Hospitals. I can't complain myself, so far, as I have received good care in the local VA, but still, many complained endlessly.

What they fail, or refuse, to see is that the VA Hospital System is a Socialized Healthcare System for a small minority of Americans. With all their complaints, imagine how they will expand should the entire nation come under a similar system.

My wife works very hard, but because she has agoraphobia she has not been able to work at a job that provides insurance. She receives some generic medication (which makes her ill) from a county program. She has been warned that her condition is very sever and will not respond to medication alone. I have been repeatedly told that she is in disparate need of talk therapy. Luckily she is in a line for free therapy but the line is one year long.

Mississippi recently tightened is rules for Medicaid and infant mortality skyrocketed (some culture of life).

All but the very richest in America are bankrupted by catastrophic illness. Those with insurance actually fare far worse than those with insurance because they receive more care with huge co-pays.

Luckily most Americans don't have to worry about the death tax. Thanks to the cost of end of life care they generally die deep in debt.
