Gosh. People who don't read the news have been touting European-syle healthcare here for ages. Now that we have Obama-care, we in the US will be able to experience excruciating pain for no reason at all as well. Thanks so much.
Tough luck, Grandma!

I don't really read the news.
...but I think in the UK, the NHS has a similar status to gun ownership in the US.
And don't tell me that in the US if someone turns up with a cataract in the ER they have to treat the patient - utter bollocks.
I'm guessing - though I might be wrong - that Rikkor isn't really a right-wing moron and is just trying to wind us up as usual. Like he doesn't know that health care is always 'rationed' some way or another - just that in the US it is purely through the ability to pay.
Al and Oxy, it is Federal law that no one can be turned away from a hospital for lack of insurance or inability to pay. They are all treated. Can the same person get a facelift for free? No.
