Government-run healthcare in England not so great for women
Hey, let’s have government-run healthcare like other industrialized nations!
Healthcare in England is so poor that women live longer in the former Communist state of Slovenia.
A shocking report yesterday showed that female life expectancy here is also lower than in almost all Western European countries.
Experts said the difference can be put down to NHS failures to spot cancer and heart disease early enough – as well as the fact that the British diet is worse than in other countries.
Mark Wallace, of the Taxpayers’ Alliance, said last night: ‘It is shocking that England is falling behind other European countries – and even more that we are falling behind a country like Slovenia. We spend a vast amount on healthcare but we don’t get the results that we should.
‘The important thing is not simply having government pour money into the NHS – but making sure the money is spent properly and the service works. This is the most important measure of all: how long people actually live.’
But of course, it won’t be like that in the United States. We’ve heard over and over and over again how big government sticking it to those evil insurance companies will stop kids from being born with autism, stop women from dying from breast cancer, etc. So surely a massive Federal healthcare bureaucracy will only work wonders here in the States.
