    Question About UK Government Health Care

    If socialized health care is so great, why is this guy coming to New York for health care?
    And where will he go for medical care once our system is ruined too?
    I know nobody cares about us peons, but we got to watch out for the important people.

    Just look at the United Kingdom's government enterprise, the National Health Service, which turns 70 this July. Today, British hospitals are so overcrowded that doctors regularly treat patients in hallways. The agency recently canceled tens of thousands of surgeries, including urgent cancer procedures, because of severe resource shortages. And this winter, nearly 17,000 patients waited in the backs of their ambulances -- many for an hour or more -- before hospital staff could clear space for them in the emergency room.

    Stephen Colbert? Please, the adults are trying to have a conversation here. Put your helmet on and go play in the yard for a bit.

    But, but, but it is a model for US all I heard. If only we had some sort of affordable health care plan here.

    Colbert has s..t for brains.....And is the last place I would get any info....Doctors follow the money. Who can blame them after the expense of the schooling and internship they go thru. Who would do all that for less than 250k a year. You decide to be a doc and it's 8-10 yrs before you make any money.

    Colbert's so annoying and disrespectful of Pres Trump it really makes you wonder how it's allowed to go on every night on the grounds of disrespect of an elected official. Don't think that kind of display would have been allowed years back.

    I'll tell you though, it feels very reassuring to be able to crawl into an emergency room with a busted hip or internal bleeding or a gash and know it's not an issue. If it's a serious ongoing chronic disease and it's going to take years of help , you're covered. That goes for everyone.

    @FMP - Drumpf spent all of President Obama's tenure mocking him and slandering him with the birther bs. What comes around, goes around...

    Yes that's true but as comedy I can except and laugh with it, as a constant degrading of a high respectful position it really doesn't do any good but fuel hate and cloud important issue, as health care.
    It's not the most effective way to achieve awareness.

    The next election will tell the story.

    Colbert would have been allowed years back. First amendment has been around for a while. Difference is the audience.
    Try to figure out the mindset of this audience. Start at the 3:20 point.






    As far as being able to crawl into an emergency room, we have that here too. If you like your socialized health care, you can keep it.
    Back to the original topic, if socialized health care is so good, why is Mick Jagger coming to the US for health care?
    I know the answer, just want to see if the resident socialists have an opinion here.

    Old joke, but you know what they call the person that graduated last in their class at medical school?



















    They call them Dr.
    And when all Dr's. are forced to work under a single payer system, what will be the motivation to excel in your field?

    You want to know what healthcare will look like with the government controlling it? Just look at the V.A..... Vets dying waiting for treatment, some commiting suicide and the government controls what they are allowed to get treated for. It's a total disaster, now imgaine every person in the U.S. having that kind of care.....we'd have a million suicides a year.

    Trump had proposed solving the VA’s problems of long waits and poor care by allowing veterans to see private doctors, with Uncle Sam picking up the tab. Did that go through?
    It was to follow a credentials schedule of affliction of illness or condition being as a result of service or during service, personal worth or income after service as well to determine eligibility for coverage for private physician visits by the Government.

    Well deserved too. Obama spent all of his tenure F*#king the american workers and citizens in every way his puppet string puller Soros told him. He helped our enemies more than he helped us, Not to mention turning a blind eye to the whole Russian election deal because he thought it would help Hillary steal the last election. Luckily for those of us who care about or country and are not communist, fascist killjoys, Trump beat the old hag and is getting our country back on track by undoing Obama's "prized" acheivements.
