DYSPEPSIA GENERATION

We have seen the future, and it sucks.

A Baby Is Condemned to Death by Socialized Medicine

30th June 2017

Read it.

American liberals often gaze across the Atlantic with admiration, viewing Europe as the model for our future. They covet Europe’s rail systems, green-energy subsidies, social liberalism, secularism, welfare states and government-run healthcare.

As Washington rings with cries that a Republican health reform bill would kill “hundreds of thousands of people,” consider the desperately sad tale of Charlie Gard, a baby boy sentenced to die by Britain’s National Health Service.

Death panels. It’s the socialist way. (Where are all the bleeding hearts?)

    Yes, it’s tragic when a child dies, but this is a false equivalence.
    One child dies under national health care vs. thousands of folks dying who can’t afford their chronic medicine.

    Lest you think “that won’t/can’t happen,” it has happened before and will happen again.
    I sang at the funeral of a man who died because he could no longer afford his dialysis.

    And yes, Death Panels. The only “socialist” thing about them is that socialists use humans to pick their victims; capitalists let The Invisible Hand do the picking. More random, but a death sentence just the same.

    As you like to say, I call BS. My sympathies for the loss of your friend. I have to assume his death was before the Affordable Healthcare Act was passed… and no one could get him to an ER…

    Great news though if his passing was before ACA, there have been changes to the care of terminally ill patients. President Obama has assured us patients like him will get a pill to take at home to easy the pain of dying.
