I wonder if she will propose a national masturbation program like Clinton's surgeon general did.

US healthcare has the highest patient satisfaction rate in world. Not sure why we wouldnt be taking the patients word on this.
That is dependent on which satisfied patients you ask and who is asking and who is deciding what questions should be asked.
Some 40 million Americans living under the poverty limits can hardly be over-represented in the impression you try to design.
So -to put it like this - for obvious reasons your statement is false.

The most equalified of his appointments..... That includes all of his cabinet....There go her clinic... Doesn't seem like she cared much for those patients, that she will be leaving. Or is it she going to load them up in her pickup truck and tranfer them to Washington.........
So speaks a true American! The one who all of you can trust if you meet with severe difficulties!

Masturbation is healthy - so why not? Prevents development of prostate cancer.
Health prevention!
Anything else before we close for the day?

Oh please, how many REAL docs do you know?
Most likely zero, and they all have 'degrees.'
Medical 'science' is mostly a bunch of perps working for the corps turning a profit trying to keep the masses sick.
Ask yourself, is their more money in healthy people or keeping people partly sick?
Answer: keep 'em sick, and they just keep on coming for more treatment to keep them sick.
Just like any other addiction, including TV/film.

Patients fill out forms after receiving treatment and their answers are what is used for the criteria of determining patient satisfaction. IMO they are the best source. The beaty about medicine in the private sector is that each hospital competes with the other. Whichever one has the best rep gets the business. Seems preferable to government controlled "you'll take what we have or nothing" to me.

And the 40 million living under the poverty line have access to Medicaid.

And we have free hospitals for all....
In addition some privately owned and run hospitals
that takes care of "nice-to-get done-surgery" for those who want to pay instead of waiting a bit.
It works! No-where they ask if you are insured, because all are ("fre of charge" -= included in taxes paid).If you need immediate attention it's there - 24/7.
You still have a long way to go ......
obama needs to go

Like you idolizing Fred Flintsone I think.
Most of us these days prefer a cold beer to Odin, but the Euro Nazis seem to make some "use" of the old Norse gods like "Odin" (and "Tor" with the hammer- who was the one making thunder ("torden")when he was angry with the people).Simple and fascinating religions - you can bet the vikings feared their god(s) more than you fear yours......
