Overall not a bad article. I did find one statistic which didn't appear to have much of a correlation regarding the number of radiologists per 100,000 people. Big deal. What you need is to correlate this back to diagnosis wait times and total number of patients to really drive this home.

    The reason the NHS is as bad as it is, and getting worse, is also known but as touchy of a subject as it is here: immigration. You see, the Brits are reproducing at below maintenance levels. The NHS is available to any immigrant. Essentially they have the same problem we’d have with Democrat proposals to “give free healthcare” to illegal immigrants here: demand outstrips supply.

    They have a hard time admitting it, or even talking about the problem because the numbers are as clear as can be: if the NHS wasn’t having to provide for the non-citizen immigrants the funding and staffing levels would not be as bad as they are - not anywhere near it. They weren’t ideal fifteen or twenty years ago, but there is no denying they were much better.

    I owe an apology. I posted earlier that I paid for Medicare and didn't use it. Reality check: Medicare payment of over $1300 annually for MedB is subtracted from my SS.. It reimburses my other insurance, also governmental for whatever Medicare B covers. Now I really think Eliz. Warren is a nut! If we pay that much annually, how in the name of all that is is, does she think we can have 'Medicare for all' free of cost?

    It is an open fact that the British National Health Care offers below standard service:

    I had personal experience when I was attending a conference and had an infected thumbnail that threatened to break to the surface.

    I was hoping it'll fix itself but after another day of serious pain, I called the hotel concierge of what kind of medical help I may be able to get to fix it?

    They asked me if I wanted to go to the hospital or call a private physician? The concierge added that it'll take several days to be accepted by the hospital and service was third rated, whereas the doctor would be here in 30 min.

    It was a no brainer. The doctor then regaled the stories of what it was like to be served by the hospital.

    The left is making the mistake, again, of taking people for dummies. Of course they think that the sheeple will believe their crap that this is the best solution, perfect health care at a cheaper price, like they did with ACA.

    Warren has seen her ratings plummet after it became known how much it'll cost and what the result will be.
