Socialized Medicine - SUCKS Bigtime!!!

I know PERSONALLY. Now I am not talking about Obamacare.

But when we lived in Canada (early 70s), my mother was literally going blind (and DID become legally blind). Her eye doctor could not figure out what was wrong. The best he could do, is tell her to "quit smoking".

She was even sent to UBC (University of British Columbia) to be examined, to no avail. It took a move back to the good ole U.S.A., which meant I had to drive the family the 3,435 miles to Florida (just a few months after getting my license at 16) to immediately restore my mom's FULL sight!

Right off the bat, the Florida eye doctor said she had cataracts. They removed them, and she was back to normal!!!

This was not an isolated incident from the distant past. When we visited Canada in summer of 2014, we met a relative of mine, that had gone in for cataract surgery. They cut his eye open, then removed his lens, and discovered they didn't have the right size replacement lens!!! So they sewed his eye back together, and put a patch on it, and will let him know when someday they get the correct lens in. THIS IS BIZARRE AND TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!!!

Long waiting lists, and HOPE YOU DON'T DIE before you get treatment is what socialized medicine is all about!

Bernie Sanders is a doofus for wanting us to settle for GARBAGE health care - don't fall for him/it!

Socialism removes the incentive for excellence in care, craftsmanship, etc. Everyone does the bare minimum.
Thanks from Aufgeblassen

Yeah, and they have to do it as quick and cheap as possible to earn just a basic living.
