At the blog We Stand Firm, Diana and Paul Hsieh, Lin Zinser and Ari Armstrong are doing a great job of fighting against socialized medicine. Friday’s Feb 6th post is about an article by Greg Scandlen of the Heartland Institute on the subject of mandatory health insurance and how it’s wrong in theory and practice.
In the same vein, JunkfoodScience looks at the disaster that is socialized medicine in Japan and how people are being rejected by hospitals who can’t handle them because they’re understaffed and have no beds. As you read this keep in mind that our leaders want this for you and me. It’s titled “A Tragic Casualty” and here’s a short quote:
“A troubling comment was made by Health Minister Yoichi Masuzoe, who “told a parliamentary committee last year that the rising number of elderly patients hospitalized for months was taking up space that could be used to treat emergency cases.”
What the world is watching is a form of supply rationing.”
All forms of socialized medicine will result in rationing.
