Socialized medicine is just terrible, eh? Dodgy

She had two more stents put in today and should be home by Sunday.
I´m glad she´s okay.

A major component of healthcare cost in the U.S. is the 25% overhead of healthcare delivery. Countries with single-payer care have far lower overhead.

RE: That damn socialized medicine.
Thanks all for the good wishes.

My sister has had heart disease for some time - she'd had a stent put in in 2004.
She recognized the symptoms and called for help immediately.

She's doing well; it looks like she may even be home Friday, New Year's Day. Thumbsup

RE: That damn socialized medicine.
Great news Chas.

Many years ago my father was traveling through the UK and had a tooth break off so he went to a dentist in London. The dentist re-did his tooth and capped it. My dad was expecting to pay everything out of pocket. He paid nothing, it was free. He talked about that experience for years afterwards. Big Grin <-- lots of teeth icon Yes

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

How aboot doze Canadian death panels, eh? I was under the impression that socialized medicine = death panels. At least that is what some elephant told me.

RE: That damn socialized medicine.
I'm glad your sis is okay. But poor thing. How on earth does she get by getting taxed 90% of her income to pay for socialized medicine?

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load
