How to Cripple Healthcare

This isn’t up for debate really. A socialised medical system is pound for pound the most cost effective method of guaranteeing the health of a population.due to a large emphasis on preventative medicine, subsidised costs, economies of scale and the like.

Now people look at the NHS bloat and don’t realise that the bloat is bad but not as bad as the USA’s. The US government spends nearly double what we do for a slightly worse system of healthcare with regards to outcomes.

After the girl died, Leilani Neumann told police God would raise the child from the dead. They genuinely believed that. [Read more...]
