Dems keep screaming that Europe's "nationalized healthcare" systems are just GREAT

Dems constantly claim that European countries--with their TOTALLY WONDERFUL nationalized health systems--are just super, which we poor fools in the U.S. suffer under horrible health-care.  Well here are some facts about socialized healthcare systems:

-12/12/11 "Canadians are being forced to wait almost 4 ½ months, on average, to receive surgical care, prolonging the pain and suffering patients and their families are forced to endure."

-4/28/12 UK Smokers and obese people denied breast reconstructions and hip or knee replacements.

-7/15/12 UK Thousands lose sight as NHS cuts cataract surgery.

-10/26/12 UK “Top doctor's chilling claim: The NHS kills off 130,000 elderly patients every year” Professor Patrick Pullicino said doctors had turned the use of a controversial ‘death pathway’ into the equivalent of euthanasia of the elderly.

-11/29/12 UK The innocent children are being put on controversial “death pathways,” once only thought to have involved elderly and terminally ill adult patients."

-12/18/12 French Socialists want option to accelerate death for terminally ill patients.

-12/22/12 “Prince Charles’s intervention follows a series of reports of appalling treatment by NHS staff, including dying patients left screaming for water”; “Last month, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said there was a ‘kind of normalization of cruelty’ in the worst hospitals, with patients too often subjected to, resentment, indifference and even contempt.”

President Obama's favorite economist Paul Krugman: We're also "going to have to ... really make decisions about health care, (and) not pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits."
"Death panels and sales taxes is how we do this."

-6/17/13 Now, in the Netherlands, parents who cannot bear to watch the suffering of their dying child can have doctors administer muscle relaxants that will bring on death quicker.

UK's top court: OK for hospital to stop treatment without the consent of the family.

-12/12/13 The Belgian Senate voted today 50-17 to extend euthanasia to children with disabilities and people with dementia.

-2/11/14 Belgium Set to Extend Right-to-Die Law to Children

-5/10/14 UK Eight out of 10 GPs fear missing a serious illness because of their heavy workload.

-7/5/14 UK "New data documents for the first time that across large areas of the United Kingdom no patients above the age of 75 are “receiving surgery for breast cancer or routine operations such as gall bladder removal and knee replacements.”

-4/12/15 Euthanasia in Belgium: Doctors ‘Hasten the Death’ of 1,000 Non-Consenting Patients a Year

As several people have said:  If you think health care is expensive NOW, just wait til it's "free."
