    Whats the big deal about that video ? The rest of the developed world has socialized medicine.
    Only thing is, they all get to pick their own doctors or hospitals , too.
    And ofcourse, the pricetag is half the price then in the US.

    Woman chronicled her own death from meningitis in phone pictures as doctors told her spreading rash was only a 'minor infection'



    • Doctors stopped antibiotics and gave her headache tablets
    • Medics 'didn't see' deadly rash spreading across her limbs
    • Patient died just 14 hours after being admitted to hospital
    [​IMG] Rash: Joanne Dowling died from blood poisoning after doctors denied her antibiotics

    A desperate patient texted photos of a deadly rash spreading across her body to her mother as she lay dying on a hospital bed while being ignored by NHS doctors.
    Critically ill Jo Dowling, 25, sent more than 40 pictures and messages to her mother and best friend as her life ebbed away.

    Reagan also said that marijuana is the most dnagerous drug in the world. Now we are using it for healthcare, Go figure....

    Difference is Obama's words was a slip up, Reagan's was not. He was serious....seriously out of touch...





    Hey Lue, why do Reaganites always ignore the facts as Wkmac pointed out ?
    I mean really, you respond to my half hearted post on Reagan, yet selectively stay silent on the truth as this post above supports. Your silence speaks volumes....go figure...

    Diesel, I'm surprised you didn't mention Tie, either. He is rather silent about wkmac's facts, too.

    What America really needs is a total overhaul, like Obama has promised, and could actually do if he had the majority to do so, or even if the Republicans would work with him.
    But, that's not the case :(

    The world is happy that Obama got elected, because the world knows, America needs to change and get things in order and get with the times.

    Too bad the conservatives don't see it :(

    Beats me, I don't know of anyone.
    But, if you mean 3rd world countries, yes, we get them here, too (charity cases).

    clueless one.....the world may be happy, but America is not happy that he got elected. He could've passed all kinds of crap, his party has had the majority for his entire term so far.

    I must be totally misinformed, then.
    He tried to get a good healthcare passed, but couldn't, and he tried to pass the Mc Cain immigration law thru, and couldn't.
    Therefor, healthcare is totally screwed up, and still no new federal immigration law.

    His Health bill was passed (sorry to say)....but maybe things will change later and it can be repealed
