Many countries provide universal insurance but deny critical procedures to patients who need them. Britainís Department of Health reported in 2006 that at any given time, nearly 900,000 Britons are waiting for admission to National Health Service hospitals, and shortages force the cancellation of more than 50,000 operations each year.<quoted text>The Repubs in Congress voted 2 years ago under the Paul Ryan Plan to get rid of Medicare and make it a private system. Medicare would have no problems if it were the universal health care plan for every American based on income. But no way would Repubs ever let that happen when millions can be paid to insurance CEOs for being a middleman.
You Repubs are hypocrites. You bitch about the government ObamaCare plan but turn 65 you all sign up for government ran health care. A lot of VETS bitch about ObamaCare but walk into a VA when they need health care. Why don't you all stand up against this Socialism you hate and pay for your own health needs??????????
The problem with universal health care is free isn't free.
Liberals continue to ignore the pink elephant - the cost of health care and how to reduce those costs.
Safety nets need repair. No one wants to do away with them.
