    That's only because the Brits have been doing it wrong all these years. Obama and the Dems will show em' all how it's done! They're the ones we've been waiting for ya' know.

    I know very little about healthcare in the US, only that its a major
    concern for americans. My take on healthcare in the UK is that
    its not a major topic of conversation here. Most people are
    reasonably happy with the care they receive. You can see a doctor
    quickly, if you have a problem that needs a specialist you get
    a hospital appointment quickly. Under the last labour government
    many new hospitals were built. I have had two operations on my
    back in recent years and am very happy with the treatment I got.
    My elderly aunt was in hospital recently so I visited her, she was
    treated very well by all the doctors and nurses, and of course
    you don't have to worry about hospital bills,after your stay. I was
    very impressed by our local hospital, it had many new buildings
    and was well maintained. I don't know how our system is seen
    in America, but I can assure you its very good.

    In order for us to comment on this change we'd need to know a lot more specifically how their system works.

    I mean I guess we can bitch that their system is either something we think is socialism or whatever, but honestly, who cares what we think about the UK's system?

    It's their HC system, isn't it?

    It took them 62 years to realize they screwed up?

    I sure hope we do not take that long, of course if any of the Morons in Washington had done a little research they would have realized the BO HC plan was no better than any other of the Socialist HC plans around the world

    Everyone knows you learn from History so you do not make the same mistakes, but I guess they never taught that in Indonesia or any of the other Schools the idiots in Washington went to.

    It sure is funny how reality is created in the head based on the filters planted there.

    Consider other filters:

    glad America is doing this differently.

    just because they can't do it reasonably, doesn't mean we can't.

    Britain was a bad model to start with.

    Americans take care of their citizens - yes we can do it well.

    good luck Britain we'll be watching your changes.

    or negative filters:

    told you so.

    I got mine fluck youse
