At the risk of striking a metabolically-challenged equine, I'd like to share with you something I received in a recent email:
"Government-controlled health care systems promote longer wait times, reduced quality of care and denials of coverage. Learn first-hand from patients, health care workers and thought leaders from health care systems abroad to learn more about potential costs and consequences of government-run health care systems."
While the idea of a nationalized system sounds good, we've seen that there's scant evidence that it's superior to our own. And because statistics themselves tell only a part of the story, it may be intructive to hear what actually happens to real people, folks just like you and me, who are forced to deal with such systems.
It's not a pretty sight.
