for starters universal health care will be a mess.. And if you need an example go look at Canada(sorry all peeps from Canada)
how many people have come to America to have a surgery because they get better care here, than they can get in Canada??
I know people who have done this because the wait was to long and there are better qualified doctors here in the USA..
Another example of social health care gone nuts, is in Europe where a
man broke his ankle and is being refused care because he is a heavy
smoker, and smoking makes the chance of recovery go down.... source http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1896536/posts
now imagine this scenario, you have been diagnosed with cancer and you
have a slim chance to live. You are discussing your options with your
doctor and he says this, "we are not going to fight the cancer because
the chance is to high that you wont live anyway and it will cost the
system to much money ". This is a very real possibility in the distant
future because think about how much it costs to fight cancer, compared
to fixing a simple ankle problem.
If you dont think i know what im talking about here is a story from my
family, my great uncle was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was told
by the first doctor he visited to "go home and settle any family
problems you might have because there is almost no chance you will
survive". my great uncle wasnt going to role over and play "dead" so
with the first doctors words in mind he went and got a second view from
a doctor at a special cancer clinic.. and he got the same diagnosis
about the severity of the cancer, but these doctors agreed that some
chance was better than no chance .. this story all took place three
years ago, today he is alive and the cancer is still there, but he is
ALIVE and the cancer is slowly going away.. this whole story would not
have turned out the same in a country with social medicine where there
is no competition between doctors.
sorry for the rant but i love this country, and way of life , way to much to just role over and watch it go down the drain
