Anything can look good on paper, even socialized medicine. But unless all you get is a paper cut, there are huge problems when government controls anything, especially health care. This post if from a read – Thanks Kurt.
This is what you get when the govt. “provides” health care. They truly get to play God. I was in the U.K. over the last week and was following this story. The parents wanted their child to live. But since the govt. picks up the tab they wanted to shut off the child’s life support and they won. My feeling is since it was going to cost a lot of money and their was little chance the child would be a “contributing” (taxpaying) member of society then the govt. doesn’t need to pay. Before everyone signs on for “free” health care they should understand what that means. The choice is not yours to make, then, it is the government’s.
