Stories the American press just won't report on
In England, if you've got arthritis, you've got a long wait ahead of you for treatment. The "free" health care provided by the British government is rationed...meaning: if you have an ailment or disease that the bureaucrats deem less important in light of the reality of limited resources (i.e. skilled doctors, available space), you either are out of luck or will be out even more money when you have to pay to see a private physician (the kind those same bureaucrats seem themselves). This Daily Mail article divulges more on the matter.
People, PLEASE follow this link here and sign the petition to "Free Our Health Care Now". Every signature matters.
The new administration and congress are pushing through legislation at a break-neck speed. Congressmen and women are not even reading the entirety of the bills being put forth before they vote on them. Things are spiraling out of control, and the centerpiece of it all as far as Obama and Pelosi are concerned is health care. They want control of it, and they want it now. Take a moment and sign this petition. We need reform, but NOT the kind being proposed. The option should not be "bad reform or no reform." We're better than this. If nothing else convinces those of you on the Center-Left side of things, just ask yourself this: how can we pay for all this change? The "rich" only have so much.
