US Healthcare Is the Best! Period! 

I received an email that spooked me only because it might be true.  It might not be true either.  Snopes, a very liberal site has not made a declaration on the matter which means it may very well be true. However, I cannot find it at Investor's Business Daily. Only they and your hairdressor probably know for sure

Right or wrong, it captures the fear that many of us have of turning our fate to the god called government from the God called Jesus Christ or some other just and peac-fostering God. 

US Healthcare Is the Best! Period!

Did I already say that? When has the government been the best provider of anything. How many people do you know with knee and hip replacements?  How about treatment for cancer? How many go untreated?  How many survive? How about diabetes.  Physicans are checking sugar levels all the time and they are nipping this in the bud ahead of time for those who get checkups. American HealthCare is the best and our doctors are the best in the world. Look at the dignataries from across the world in which socialist healthcare is practiced. They come here because we are the best. We are the best because it matters.  

There is a lot to this healthcare thing but the government's proposal is to make the government the king of healthcare and we know who is looking to be the king of the government. I regret that it is a man who calls himself Barack. 


So, let's say this forthcoming email is right, then what?

Don't give up... America rocks. DOn;t let anybody tell you differently!

Subject:  Interesting Data on Health Care
To: My Dear Cousin

This article is from the "Investor's Business Daily."  It provides some very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
U.S.               65%
England       46%
Canada        42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
U.S.               93%
England       15%
Canada        43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
U.S.               90%
England       15%
Canada        43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
U.S.               77%
England       40%
Canada        43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
U.S.               71
England       14
Canada        18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":
U.S.             12%
England       2%
Canada        6%

I don't know about you, but I don't want "Universal Healthcare" comparable to England or Canada .

Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, "Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age."    WELL, SHIP HIS ASS TO CANADA OR ENGLAND !
end of email!

Harry does have a lot to say about a lot that he should say nothing about.  Should we trust him with doing what is right for our health?

Bob Casey Jr. listens to every word Harry Reid and says and rarely offers a word to contradict his master.  

If it were not so, maybe I could just retire and enjoy the sweetness of life. But, Bob and Harry have me worried that they will be scobbing my healthcare away while winking and blaming Republicans.
