Quote for the Day

"You can lead a fool to wisdom, you cannot make him think." -- Jeff Cooper

Really Want Government Controlled Health Care?

Let's just look at some facts, figures, and stats about cancer in regards to socialized medicine as opposed to what we have in the United States (for now anyway).

"Breast cancer kills 25 percent of its American victims. In Great Britain, the Vatican of single-payer medicine, breast cancer extinguishes 46 percent of its targets.

Prostate cancer is fatal to 19 percent of its American patients. The National Center for Policy Analysis reports that it kills 57 percent of Britons it strikes." [link]

You should read the rest of the article they also compare other health conditions as well. Now just today this comes out:

"Improvements in cancer screening and better treatments have resulted in steady declines in cancer death rates over the past three decades, U.S. researchers said on Thursday." [link]

Looks like an absolutely no-brainer to me, but then again we are dealing with congress aren't we?
