Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.
Dr. Sowell is talking, and you really ought to listen. He’s not JUST smart – brilliant, in fact – he’s also got a large measure of common sense, and that is FAR more valuable in the Real World.
Here’s today’s bit to tempt you into clicking over and reading the column at JewishWorldReview.com:
British newspapers have for years carried stories about the neglect of patients under the National Health Service, of which this is just one. When nurses don’t get around to taking a pregnant woman to the maternity ward in time, the baby doesn’t wait.
But the American media don’t tell you about such things when they are gushing over the wonders of “universal health care” that will “bring down the cost of medical care.”
Instead, the media spin is that various countries with government-run medical systems have life expectancies that are as long as ours, or longer. That is very clever as media spin, if you don’t bother to stop and think about it.
Author Sally Pipes did bother to stop and think about it in her book, “The Truth About ObamaCare.” She points out that medical care is just one of the factors in life expectancy.
