There really are not any good working socialized health care systems. What ultimately suffers is the quality of health care and health care innovation. it goes to the most basic root of economics and that is profit drives efficiencies and innovation.
Also, if you listen to the President at his own word, it will result in rationing and the governnment determining who lives and who dies that the choice will be taken from the patient and their doctor. This is scary. The president himself even said, some people will be told to take a pain pill instead of getting treatment.
In the Uk people are denied cancer drugs because of cost even though they are proven to work. Here in the US anyone that cares enough to have insurance can have it, and would get those treatments that are being denied them in other countries. All they have to do is have it as one of their priorities. I got insurance at 18 with nothing more than a HS diploma. Ii just had it as a priority to find a job that provides it. There were many other jobs that I would rather of been doing, but it was a priority of mine to be covered just in case even though I was healthy at the time.
Cancer Survival by Country
Coleman and colleagues drew on data from nearly 2 million cancer patients, ages 15 to 99, whose medical information was entered into 101 population-based cancer registries in 31 countries. The patients had been diagnosed with one of four cancers: b****t, colon, r****m, or prostate cancers during the years 1990-1994. They were followed up to 1999, with the researchers comparing five-year survival rates.
The highest survival rates were found in the U.S. for b****t and prostate cancer
The study showed the US had the highest five-year survival rates for b****t cancer at 83.9?nd prostate cancer at 91.9?
The UK had 69.7?urvival for b****t cancer, just above 40?or colon and r****l cancer for both men and women and 51.1?or prostate cancer.
The U.S. has a five-year survival rate in all the cancers studied of 91.9 per cent, while Europe's is much lower at 57.1 per cent. However, survival rates within the U.S. can vary.
Older people are refused organ transplants and kidney dialysis in socialized countries.
Socialized medicine is killing people. People that are covered now and would get excellent care, will be killed.
You may be deemed to old for health care and the government may choose to put you down.
Basically socialized medicine kills about 40?f all people that get cancer over our medical system.
That is just the ones they report. i wonder f they even report the ones that they simply refuse to even treat because of age or costs.
basically like any other time that the government gets involved it punishes those that are responsible for those that are irresponsible.
If you look around the world at their socialized system you would be loosing health care. It would take you longer to see specialists, if you were to be stricken by cancer the government would decide weather or not you would be eligable for treatments.
Basically the government is taking health care from those that have it as a priority andgiving it to those that do not.
There will not be more doctors, in fact the government will cap their pay and highly regulate them meaning there will be less doctors. There will not be more hospitals. Basically the government will not create any health care, it will simply distribute it.
Also, they will take the profit motive from all companies related to the health care industry and that is where the only cost savings will come from. This may sound good, but it really means no new innovation because they will nto be compensated for R&D and the risk of putting all that money on the line for research if they do not make anything off of it. In countries where socialized insurance exists, there is no new innovation.
We can not afford it. Basically the democrats claim that there are 47 Million people without health insurance. The Government plan costs way to much and it will still leave 20 Million uninsured. We will not only destroy health care for the middle class, but we are going to burry our children and grandchildren in debt all so able bodied and minded people simply do not have to take responsibility for themselves.
Finally, The government health care plan will destroy private insurance plans. In this video it shows Obama talking about it as well as other democrats. They are fully aware that it will drown out private insurance.
