    Government health care advocates used to sing the praises of Britain’s National Health Service (NHS). That’s until its poor delivery of health care services became known. A recent study by David Green and Laura Casper, “Delay, Denial and Dilution,” written for the London-based Institute of Economic Affairs, concludes that the NHS health care services are just about the worst in the developed world.

    The head of the World Health Organization calculated that Britain has as many as 25,000 unnecessary cancer deaths a year because of under-provision of care. Twelve percent of specialists surveyed admitted refusing kidney dialysis to patients suffering from kidney failure because of limits on cash. Waiting lists for medical treatment have become so long that there are now “waiting lists” for the waiting list.

    That's what libbies do. Create a problem via excessive regulation and then say "see we have problem and we need to fix it."

    This is what obama and his worshippers wish to inflict on this country.

    Public TV had a special on world wide health systems. There were many that sounded better than ours. TaiWan's comes to mind.

    Fair enough; there just seemed to be a lot of focus on Britain, that's all
