Our Insane Health Care System

likened to a posh nightclub. Mark Steyn can be pretty funny.

    It’s especially funny when you hear his voice as you read it. Love his view on things and his way with words.

    When I first was given a computer by my children and I dared to dip my toe into the raging seas of the blogs I thought at first that the comments I read re health care in the blog comboxes were a joke. I read that someone on medication for a psychiatric illness had to only take her tablets every second day because she couldn’t afford all of them at once, I read of a pregnant girl who couldn’t afford to go to a doctor, I read in a book set in Eugene Oregon that a university student couldn’t afford to have a shoulder injury operated on and so she became a heavy consumer of Vicodene for pain medication. A man became redundant and he had to exhaust almost all of his savings to obtain medical treatment for him and his baby daughter. etc etc etc Australia has a taxpaying population of approximately 11 million people and in none of the cases above would any Australian be denied health care. I have posted this sort of thing before and I am howled down in the comboxes yet I still keep coming across stories like this. America is soooo rich – why can’t everyone have access to a basic need such as health care?
