AVAAZ.ORG LETS THE WORLD TELL ITS HEALTH CARE STORIES
Posted by politicalpartypooper on August 21, 2009
This website says it all. AVAAZ.org set up this thread to encourage people from the U.K., Canada, and other nations who have national health systems to respond with their stories of how having National Healthcare has affected their lives. Some excerpts below:
My husband had to have 4 surgeries in the last year and a half. Two were joint replacement. Total wait time, 4 months, total out of pocket,Zero dollars. We live in Canada and are thankful for health care system. Get with the picture,Yankees! Sue from Canada
I am an 8 year breast cancer survivor. My care in Australia cost me nothing, was immediate and superb. My daughter, who lives in the USA, works one full time and one part time job doing social work and pays for the worst health care you can imagine for her family. Her co=pays amd medications are keeping them poor, and she worries constantly about what she would do in a health care crisis. I lived and worked for 30 years in teh USA, and this is not the future I thought we were building. Gillian from Australia
The list goes on and on and on and on. I’m pointing my conservative friends to it. Even if they won’t agree with it, they can’t deny that the people who wrote those comments are proud of the level of care they receive. Pass this on to everyone! It’s time to kill the Death Panels, the Rationed Cares, and the Wait Times.
