(Telegraph)   Suck it, haters - the UK's socialized health system only let 43 people starve to death in their hospitals last year. And the number who died of thirst? Only 111. And if granny's in hospital, she'll usually be fed. Half the time. Luxury   ( divider line

Since this is the Daily Mail we're talking about here, I have to ask the obligatory question of how we can blame immigrants for this?

That's sick. When we starve people to death we make the go die in the street instead of dirtying up our nice hospitals.

SN1987a goes boom: So when people suffer in socialized medical hospitals its evil, but when people are made to suffer as a rule in hospices run by Mother Theresa's nuns then its a miracle?

/Don't act like the OMG SOCIALIZIZMS crowd think poorly of MT.

When people suffer in America's hospitals, it's because the free market hasn't yet kicked in to correct everything, and that's almost always because Obama soshalist. But once we get his college transcripts everything will get corrected.

crab66: The derp when it comes to conservatives in this country and healthcare is just about too much to handle.

Even looking at it from a purely fiscal point of view you would realize that it's waaaaaay more expensive to send people to hospitals and let them become seriously ill from preventable or manageable diseases than it is to insure them.

But no lets scare people with bullshiat like this because I'm sure the amount people suffering in the US due to lack of treatment isn't tenfold(per capita) what it is in the UK or any other civilized country

crab66: Spartapuss: We should just privatize the system. They would care if it affected their paycheck.

And you would care when a much bigger chunk of YOUR paycheck goes to healthcare.

The competitive market would drive those prices down. This is pretty simple stuff, really.
