Healthcare- Learning From Other People's Mistakes

No matter how good it sounds to have government supply our healthcare needs for us, if it is not sustainable, then it is no more than empty promises.

Back in October of 2007 Wake up America did a piece showing examples from Britain on NHS which is their National Health Service, socialized medicine and government run healthcare.

That piece showed how 70,000 Britons will travel abroad for their healthcare because of the government run healthcare system in place there, as well showing actual case studies of people that had to go elsewhere for life saving medical procedures because they would not live long enough for the government to get around to saving their lives with their socialized healthcare system.

Canadians are also having to outsource their cancer patients because of shortages.
It also showed France and how the system is not sustainable of time.

Every country that has socialized medicine show the same horrors and same problems.

A smart person looks at the failure of others and learns from their mistakes.... not the Obama administration though.

Rick Scott, founder of a group called Conservatives for Patients' Rights, in a campaign coordinated by CRC Public Relations, has ads (video at the top of this post)airing that is making those same comparisons and showing the failures of the system that Barack Obama is trying to impose on Americans.

But in ads, media appearances and other venues, Scott argues that whatever effort Obama is likely to put forth, it will put the country on a slippery slope toward a bureaucratic, British-style national health service.

The effort has alarmed many Democrats and liberal health-care advocates, who are pushing back with attacks highlighting Scott's ouster as head of the Columbia/HCA health-care company amid a fraud investigation in the 1990s. The firm eventually pleaded guilty to charges that it overbilled state and federal health plans, paying a record $1.7 billion in fines.

You can see more of these ads at C4PatientsRights on YouTube.

Obama is on a full out public relations campaign to give the government control of your healthcare, but looking at the lessons of other people's failures show us his promises are no more than his attempt to socialize our country and by the numbers, they don't add up to better healthcare at all.
