The reality of healthcare...it will be like Japan

  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_in_Japan

    In the Japanese health care system, healthcare services, including screening examinations for particular diseases at no direct cost to the patient, prenatal care, and infectious disease control, are provided by national and local governments. Payment for personal medical services is offered through a universal health care insurance system that provides relative equality of access, with fees set by a government committee...

    ...all elderly persons have been covered by government-sponsored insurance. Patients are free to select physicians or facilities of their choice.


    And then the kicker...

    ...patients have universal access to any facility, though hospitals tend to charge higher for those without a referral. However space can be an issue in some regions. More than 14,000 emergency patients were rejected at least three times by Japanese hospitals before getting treatment in 2007, according to the latest government survey. In the worst case, a woman in her 70s with a breathing problem was rejected 49 times in Tokyo...

    Rejected at the emergency room 49 times! Sounds like something I want to pay an extra 10% out of my income for everyone to have!

    Britain is providing us with stories of all the thousands of babies born outside the hospitals. In spite of tripling funding for the health care system they still don't have beds enough.. and Sarah Palin is right on regarding Obama death panels as far as I'm concerned... the stories about how the doctors just declare somebody terminal and off them in the hospitals are for real...

    Sarah Palin, crucified right before our eyes.. they burned her church and she had 13 investigations from the Left, all of which she had to defend with her own attorneys and her own money... while trying to serve as the Governor of Alaska... she's a church lady you bastards, get over it already... what a bunch of swine, trampling all over her... she still gets her rallying cry out there occasionally...
     
  3. Why can't you get it, she does not belong. She is a misfit. US national politics is seriously in need of a Simon Cowell figure telling losers to get lost
     

  4. There is no Democrat on the national scene as sharp as Palin and Palin is going to eat their lunch.
     
  5. Hahahahaha.
     
  6. You can't name anyone can you lol.

  8. I don't need to\want to. At some point you realize you are conversing with a dim wit and all reason is hopeless. You belong in the category of people who are like developmentally challenged children i.e people make excuses for your retardation...
     
  9. I can't name anyone either. Alan Grayson is sharp but doesn't have the personality. He is not on the national scene either.
     
  10. This guy agrees with you on Palin....
