And England has — say it with me — socialized healthcare.
Perhaps the proponents of a socialized healthcare system here in the United States, like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, are actually trying to eliminate one of the reasons border-jumpers come here in the first place: our top-notch healthcare system. Perhaps their plan is really an anti-illegal immigration plan in disguise.
That would be believable until you remember that these presidential hopefuls are courting the Hispanic vote as well.
Conclusion: proponents of socialized healthcare systems can’t learn the lessons from other people’s failures. Instead they insist that “it’s a good idea, but it just hasn’t been implemented properly,” while trying to convince everyone that their way will work. For everyone who’s been paying attention, socialized anything never works, never has, and never will.
