Lots of people could afford private care with private payment a lot more easily if they weren't paying so much of their earnings to support a huge crony Medical/Industrial Complex. (Edit: Don't forget the Insurance/Industrial Complex either..)


Spot on!

And now he's dead. There 's millions of dollars saved by doing the right thing and not listening to the US choir that needs to play politics with people's lives.

And the truth is, in the US if the parents couldn't pay the first 100 K$ he wouldn't have been kept living as long as in the UK.

There's no profit in keeping a child alive in a private US hospital and it' about twice as expensive as it would be in a Canadian hospital.

Why does the choir with the worst health care in the modern world sing the loudest about other people's children?

You say that proves that governments should make those sorts of decisions for everyone, based on a cost benefit analysis of each case done by bureaucrats?

Government beaurocrats don't have a financial bottom line to consider and so can make a decision based on solid advice from the doctors.

You think a CEO of a private hospital gives a fuk about a dying child?

Government run universal health care has been proven to be head and shoulders above and better than US for profit health care. Why do you hate your fellow Americans? Why do you hate children? Is this still all about your union slapping your wrist?

Nonsense.

Britain's NIH is under constant pressure to make ends meet. They have run out of other people's money and the viability of their own pensions and benefits are in serious question...

Being under pressure to make ends meet is the desired condition. Anything else would indicate a condition in which waste would be running rampant.

This is how government runs health care. It provides what is necessary to continue to be rated much higher than the US system always. It's never allowed to deteriorate to the level of the US system.

You know that Craig, why do you want to continue to allow me to punish you with the uncomfortable facts? You need to talk to burnsred. He knew he was pissing up a blind ally when you talked about heallth care and he wisely quit doint it.

Does the prohibition of taking that child out of the U.K. for healthy treatment elsewhere violate the U.N.'s Declaration of Human Rights Article 20 (2) that "No one may be compelled to belong to an association"?

Americans shouldn't try to voice opinions on human rights when they're slaughtering people throughout the world in phony wars.
