The babies born in hospital corridors: Bed shortage forces 4,000 mothers to give birth in lifts, offices and hospital toilets<quoted text>That was one of favorite lines from the Mitt campaign. "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers," Romney pollster Neil Newhouse said at a panel organized by ABC News.
Never let FACTS get in the way of a talking point. ahhahahahhahahahhaha!!!!!!!!!!
Suppose the medical business was privatized once again. When real money is EARNED by medical staff, and better office equipment is funded by PAYING customers...it's an amazing thing, this capitalism stuff. All of a sudden, you can find yourself with CHOICES of doctors and nurses to care for you. But don't worry, if Obama has his way in America, we'll be joining this medical blight. Your misery will have company.

Sentenced to death on the NHS
Patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an NHS scheme to help end their lives, leading doctors have warned.
“As a result a national wave of discontent is building up, as family and friends witness the denial of fluids and food to patients."
The warning comes just a week after a report by the Patients Association estimated that up to one million patients had received poor or cruel care on the NHS.
The scheme, called the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP), was designed to reduce patient suffering in their final hours.
