NHS lessons for Obamacare by Cal Thomas is a slipshod, sloppy and inaccurate piece of reporting consisting of anecdotal references and sensational headlines. We need to have the discussion but it hardly serves any purpose to trash the United Kingdom’s healthcare system when, in fact, it outperforms ours in many areas, especially in birth outcomes. In fact, a recent study indicates we are dead last when compared to 16 European countries in life outcomes. All 16 have national healthcare.

I and my family have benefited enormously from some of the best care available anywhere, but we have insurance. There are less fortunate people among us and there but for the grace of God go I. Or is that a ridiculous self-serving phrase we use to avoid “Loving thy neighbor as thyself”.
