Why the World Envies Us

One of the common rants among committed leftists is for “universal health care.” They point to Canada, where a heart operation may be scheduled for a year from now, or Cuba, if you want to trust physicians who don’t get paid. Our health system is the best in the world. Period, new paragraph. It pleases me to post this:

Saved From Socialism: U.S. Saves Baby Oliver After U.K. Doctors Said His Heart Couldn’t Be Fixed

Imagine if the world didn’t have the U.S. to run to because the U.S. went socialist. That’s where the left would take us.

Baby Oliver was born with a rare heart condition known as cardiac fibroma. The socialized healthcare system in the U.K. was not equipped to perform the necessary surgery to remove the non-cancerous tumor in his heart. Oliver would have to be put on a list to receive a heart transplant, and even then, he would only be expected to live to the age of 15, at the longest.

The NHS, however, initially refused to pay for the roughly $260,000 parents Lydia and Tim Cameron needed to fund the trip and procedure required to save their baby.

After funding nearly $170,000 on their own and garnering international attention, the NHS’s hand was forced. The government finally announced that they would allow and fund the necessary surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital.

    House Democrats Unveil Latest Low Energy 2018 Campaign Slogan
    House Democrats unveiled their low energy 2018 slogan on Wednesday.
    I’LL BET SOME “CONSULTANT” GOT PAID BIG MONEY FOR THIS CRAP
    “For the People”

    Which people?
    Illegal aliens?
    MS-13 killers?

    The Democrats are desperate to counter President Trump’s very successful “Make America Great Again” slogan that resonated with Americans from all walks of life during the 2016 election.

      That is “telling” as they say. Trump’s thing is “We the people.” Dems are, as per usual, appealing to those who prefer hand-outs.

    Rep. Maxine Waters Warns Supporters Not to Confront Militia Group

    Oath Keepers, an armed far-right group, plans to protest Waters for weeks in her California district
    SHE’S GREAT AT INSTIGATING VIOLENCE,BUT SHE KNOWS THESE PEOPLE DON’T PLAY THAT.
    The Oath Keepers, which claims 35,000 members who often dress in military gear and carry military-grade rifles at protests and events across the country, issued a “call to action” for Thursday to protest Waters’ “incitement of terrorism” and Democrats’ opposition to Republican immigration policies.
    The Oath Keepers allege Waters is “inciting far-left terrorist violence and threats of violence.”

    Waters said the Oath Keepers have a right to assemble to protest her but advised her supporters to stay away.

    Four Blue States Protest Tax Reform with a Frivolous Lawsuit
    THESE STATES HAVE BEEN ROBBING THEIR CITIZENS BLIND WITH USURIOUS TAXES,BUT THEY WERE ABLE TO WRITE IT ALL OFF ON THEIR FEDERAL TAXES. WHEN THE REPUBLICANS CAPPED THE DEDUCTIONS AT $10,000,PEOPLE REALIZED HOW THEY WERE BEING SCREWED.DEMOCRATS DON’T LIKE BEING UNMASKED.
    Four high-tax blue states — New York, Connecticut, Maryland, and New Jersey — have filed suit against the federal government over the recent tax reform. Specifically, they object to its limitation on the deduction for state and local taxes (SALT).

    Under federal tax law, filers are allowed to deduct property taxes (the local part) and either state income or sales taxes. But under the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (TCJA), the SALT deduction is now capped at $10,000. This deduction had been particularly valuable in high-tax, high-house-price states such as California and the four now suing the federal government.

    Illegal Aliens Register to Vote in San Francisco
    FECES IN THE STREET,HOMELESS CAMPS EVERYWHERE,RAMPANT CRIME AND DRUG USE,HIGHEST COST OF LIVING IN THE COUNTRY. ALL THAT MATTERS IS GETTING MILLIONS OF ILLEGALS TO VOTE.

    San Francisco is the first city in the state to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections.

    “As a parent myself and a former member of the SF Board of Education it is critical that the voices of all parents are at the table particularly those that have historically been denied a voice in the process,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer who represents District 1.

    Trump says ‘Fake News’ pushing ‘major confrontation’ with Russia
    HE’LL CATCH CRAP FROM THESE SLUGS NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES…HE KNOWS IT.
    He also said: “The Fake News Media is going Crazy! They make up stories without any backup, sources or proof. Many of the stories written about me, and the good people surrounding me, are total fiction. Problem is, when you complain you just give them more publicity. But I’ll complain anyway!”

    I remember seeing a Louder with Crowder where he interviewed people outside a Canadian hospital. One woman was there, taking a break from her loved one’s bed side. And was she mad! The national health system had made them wait SIX MONTHS for a blood test, by which time a condition that could have been treated with antibiotics had become cause for amputating her LEG.

    The woman Crowder interviewed said she had just gone to the vet and gotten her dog a blood test with no waiting. It cost $10. But Canada’s “no private health care allowed cuz it wouldn’t be FAIR” system denies anyone the right to just pay out of pocket. They have to go to the U.S., if they can. Cities near the border actually have medical tourism for these refugees from Canada’s “fair” health care.

    I also read about a city that is very distant (cuz Canada is YUGE) from any major metropolitan hospital. It’s way too far for anyone to get a scan (forget if it was MRI or CAT or what). The government wouldn’t give their hospital one, because they weren’t high enough on the priority list, so the city did their own fund raising and pulled together enough money to buy their own.

    The government denied them permission to do so, just like the British NHS refused to allow Alfie’s parents to take him out of the country for treatment, after they raised their own travel money AND had a hospital at the Vatican willing to treat the boy. Alfie died.

    When Leftists tell you single payer (government run) is the only fair health care, this is what they’re talking about.
