PROOF National Socialized Health Care is a FAILED System

National Socialized Health Care Doesn't Work and is in fact much WORSE than America's free market health-care system.

Obama koolaid drinking socialists and leftwing bloggers are either misguided or simply liars when they tell you that Nationalized Socialized Government Run Health Care is better than a free market healthcare system.

If you don't believe it, just read what those who are experiencing it have to say about it.

Things our Democrat controlled press won't tell you about Nationalized Health Care.

From "The Problems With Socialized Health Care".

Straight from the newspapers


Other European Countries:

Parliament unanimously passed the Canada Health Act in 1984 and established a single-payer, publicly-financed health care system. To ensure a true government monopoly (is there any other kind?) Canadian provinces outlawed private health insurance.

Chaoulli v. Quebec UPDATE (June 9, 2005): In a 4 to 3 decision, the Canadian Supreme Court struck down Quebec's law that prohibits private medical insurance.

U.S. Patients have Greater Access to Advanced Medical Technology Than Do Canadians


The Cuban Government has implemented a two-tiered medical system (e.g. "medical apartheid") that caters to foreign tourists while denying native Cubans access to basic medical necessities (at least it is "free" to them). This attempt to draw foreign dollars is one of many programs that were necessary once the Soviet subsidies ended in the early nineties.

New Zealand's Ministry of Health is the New Zealand "Government's principal agent and advisor on health and disability."
Australia's universal health care scheme is relatively new (introduced in 1983, which built on the 1974 Medibank program). As with all socialized health care systems, there is a mixture of public versus private care (approximately 30% of Australians also retain private health insurance). As a result, the private patients receive better care than their medicare counterparts.

The salary caps and artificial increase in demand for care that always occur in a national health care system are resulting in predictable physician shortages.

All of the pervasive problems within the U.S. health care system are a direct result of statism. Unfortunately, most Americans buy into the feel-good soundbites and look to the socialist utopia to provide answers, not understanding that additional government intervention always worsens the problems.

Not even the so-called experts who villify capitalism understand the difference between Statism/socialism and liberty (see Dr. Arnold S. Relman's For-Profit Health Care: Expensive, Inefficient and Inequitable, in which he refers to "HMOs that would be paid by the government" as "care under the private system").

Yet liberals, lefties, socialists and Democrats alike are all panting and chanting for socialized medicine.

Good lord Red. How long did it take you to put this together?

I agree that nationalized or socialized health care is not the answer. I actually posted something on this very subject today.
