Michelle is paging Michael Moore
This is what happens after 10 years of nationalized health care in Britain. Sub-par treatment, long lines, and more people going elsewhere for the health care they need.
Novel idea: Give me more of my own money (lower my taxes) so I can afford a decent health care policy.
Those of you who think nationalized health care is the solution are totally insane.
Before you vote next year, remember who wants to nationalize healthcare in America: Clinton, Obama, Edwards…nuff said.
Record numbers of Britons are travelling abroad for medical treatment to escape the NHS – with 70,000 patients expected to fly out this year.
And by the end of the decade 200,000 “health tourists” will fly as far as Malaysa and South Africa for major surgery to avoid long waiting lists and the rising threat of superbugs, according to a new report.
The first survey of Britons opting for treatment overseas shows that fears of hospital infections and frustration of often waiting months for operations are fuelling the increasing trend.
Patients needing major heart surgery, hip operations and cataracts are using the internet to book operations to be carried out thousands of miles away.
