A MUST SEE video/audio from Ronald Reagan explaining the dangerous truths about Socialized Medicine.
The Truth About Universal Health Care: (from Urban Conservative)
There are over 1,000 children waiting over 600 days for ear, nose and throat surgery in Warnbro, Australia alone!
The Canadian Medical Association Journal found that 50 people in Ontairo ALONE passed away while waiting on necessary surgery (not just cancer).
In 2000 the journal Clinical Oncology had an article about how more than 20% of operable cancer cases became inoperable in the amount of time they spent on the waiting list in England for the operation.
The times online (England) reported the following figures in April of 2009:
More than 43,000 operations were cancelled between January and September of 2008. that equates to over 1,800 people NOT being treated within 28 days of their original surgery date.
This is the kind of care Obama and Pelosi want for YOU.
And it’s not just surgery.
The Toronto Sun ran a story about Mark Degasperis, who mother spent 5 DAYS on a stretcher in a hallway of a hospital waiting for a bed
In March of 2009 Mirror.co.uk.news ran a story about a couple who lost a baby because the hospital didn’t have an anesthesiologist on duty to do a C-Section!
Mail Online in January of 2008 had a story about a boy who’s been deaf for 9 years suddenly regaining his hearing because the Q-tip that was in his ear fell out, NO DOCTOR EVER CAUGHT THE PROBLEM! That’s quality health care, don’t you want that kind of health care? Obama and Pelosi want that for YOU!.....
"The question of health care is not one of rights but of how best in practice to organize it. America is certainly not a perfect model in this regard. But neither is Britain, where a universal right to health care has been recognized longest in the Western world. 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. Universality is closely allied as an ideal, ideologically, to that of equality. But equality is not desirable in itself. To provide everyone with the same bad quality of care would satisfy the demand for equality. ... In any case, the universality of government health care in pursuance of the abstract right to it in Britain has not ensured equality. After 60 years of universal health care, free at the point of usage and funded by taxation, inequalities between the richest and poorest sections of the population have not been reduced. But Britain does have the dirtiest, most broken-down hospitals in Europe. There is no right to health care -- any more than there is a right to chicken Kiev every second Thursday of the month." --British physician Theodore Dalrymple
(from American Future Fund:)
In a shocking display of arrogance and misunderstanding, Arlen Specter confronts a town hall when asked why members of Congress do not read the thousand page bills put before them with regard to health care.
He was questioned as to why, if the government is looking at taking over 20 PERCENT of our nation’s entire economy…how can we be confident and trust in members of Congress to re-engineer the entire health care system?!
Arlen, after hemming and hawing, responds that Congress need to “do this fast” with regard to the health care legislation. Complete disregard for concerns of his own constituents. At this point, the crowd erupts in opposition to this statement.
This video…this really cuts to the heart of this health care debate, doesn’t it? The anger felt in this one town hall is a feeling that is resonating throughout the entire country: the American people are fed up with multi-trillion-dollar “bailouts” and “stimulus” packages…and they don’t want the government to now take over a full 20 PERCENT of our economy.
