    I read the article and I doubt it. They are starting already. What is our new healthcare, oh right, private. Hell die in the street now. What is the new plan for our healthcare, oh right there isn't one.

    Actually it was from an Australian news source. Don’t think it’s unusual? Read this from the CBC (Canadian news) from 2016 showing a wait for 9 years.

    Big deal. Extremely low priority cases are not going to be put ahead of more critical cases. That's a good thing. A doctor can move a person up the list any time the case requires it.

    In Germany the “free” health care is a joke. Most friends I knew that use German quack doctors have horror stories about how bad they are. Most Germans that can afford it end up buying private insurance and don’t use the free crap.

    geez, this is what happens when your argument is ideologically driven.. the whole point is the ridiculousness of being given an appointment 11 years down the road...would you go back 11 years later? what kind of "low priorty" health care needs to be seen in 11 years later?..
    ... these are the kind of things you would be asking if you were thinking clearly making a serious attempt at providing health care instead of pretending it is a better idea to wait 11 years...this is so typical of socialism

    How stupid can you get. That particular facility had a high rate of serious cases. She wasn't told she couldn't be seen by another doctor at any another place.
