I don't know much about the issue and it would be nice to see this topic in one of shanedk episodes.

I've thought about it. "Universal health care" is nothing more than the latest newspeak for Socialized Medicine. And there are so many myths floating around about the health care systems in Canada, UK, and elsewhere that fall apart when you actually examine the evidence.

Moreover, people keep trying to use the US health care system as an example of why the free market doesn't work, when in fact there's very little of the free market in play here. It's really a half-Socialist half-corporatist system.

I could probably make an episode tearing Sicko a new one. I've also seen video testamonials of people who had to come to America to get a life-saving procedure because of shortages and waiting lists (which always happen when you socialize; it's the Tragedy of the Commons).

If anyone knows of videos for or against, as always post them here.

I live in the UK and it's universal only if it's an emergency it seems.

For example, I had a really bad cough flu like shit. So I ended up going to the doc's(which I hate). But I went in and waited about an hour, got in and it took like five mins and said the problem would go away on it's own but here's a prescription blah blah. So I went to the chemist's and showed them the prescription and had to pay about 7 for it.

People here will just go to A&E instead of going to doctor's because of this and it queues up people with real emergencies alot which is a big problem.

Basically, Universal Health Care is good if everybody didn't need treatment.
