Over at Abducens Nucleus blog, the physician/host has a powerful, detailed takedown of the rose-colored picture many folks have of nationalized health care schemes.
Here's a taste:
"One in three households surveyed tried and failed to gain timely access to at least one health service within the previous three months. And in one study, the total waiting time between referral from a general practitioner and specialty care averaged nearly 18 weeks. Even the Supreme Court has weighed in on the unacceptable delays in care. But the lawsuit is not against a dreaded American HMO and the events did not happen in the U.S. All were byproducts of the Canadian health care system."
That's gonna leave a mark.
