Government Health Care Causes Harm To You

This article was pulled from the "Investor's Business Daily." It provides some very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.
Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

U.S. 65%
England 46%
Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:

U.S. 93%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:

U.S. 90%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:

U.S. 77%
England 40%
Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:

U.S. 71
England 14
Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":

U.S. 12%
England 2%
Canada 6%

I don't know about you, but I don't want "Universal Healthcare" comparable to England or Canada .
Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, "Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age."

 A H/T goes to both MAINFO and WOFAT.

Why should Harry worry, he isn't going to be subjected to any of this... Heal as I say, not as I do... These bastards wouldn't know an HMO if it hit them in the face... Self serving pricks each and every one...

If Harry gets sick,maybe he should be forced to take a "pain pill."

Elderly Care South Atlanta

That nursing home has nothing to do with government run health care. It says nothing of the sort. In fact the page you sent me to only shows a detailed list of the services the elderly home provides or offers. It has nothing about price on its website. So, show me some credible evidence of how and why you think government run health care is so good.

Everything the gov't touches turns to crap. If this passes, it would be the most awful, craptastic junk ever!
