Universal's Care Filthy Failure
Despite the growing evidence that socialist medicine is a disaster, its supporters blindly continue to push for a government system in the U.S. They need some down time in a hospital bed in south-central England.
The British system, which, along with Canada's, supposedly is the model we should follow, is no panacea. It is, in fact, a mess.
A Los Angeles Times story on Friday described a system so rotten that in some hospitals "patients allegedly were forced to defecate in their beds and wait for hours for clean sheets."
The story focuses on the struggle in British hospitals to contain the growth of deadly hospital infections that are in large part bred by unsanitary conditions.
