Why I Changed My Mind About Government-Run Socialized Medicine

In a guest editorial in Friday's IBD, a Canadian doctor describes the day he began to give up his idealization of socialized medicine and how it lowers the bar for medical care and treatment on every level.

Read it if you dare, and remember, this is the direction Hillary Clinton wants to take us in this country. I don't know about you, but having a doctor's appointment cancelled 48 times, or having to draw straws to see who gets the next available doctors appointment doesn't sound like a very good plan to me.

As in all things, free markets makes things more efficient for the medical consumer, and government intervention makes things more laborious.
