Seven Cuban doctors and a nurse sued Cuba, Venezuela and the state-run oil company Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa) for alleged conspiracy to force them to work in conditions of "modern slaves" in order to pay off the Cuban debt with the Venezuelan government for oil supply.
The defendants "intentionally and arbitrarily" held the health staff in "debt servitude" and the staff became "economic slaves" and "political advocates," according to the complaint filed in the United States, Efe reported.

American Doctors, Take Note
Socialism is slavery to the State, Comrade.
All of Cuba is a giant slave plantation.
The family of doctors sent to Venezula are kept (hostage) in Cuba — to guarantee their return.
They discovered what “Dictatorship of the Proletariat” really means in practical terms.
Add the DNC to that Lawsuit!
But it is FREE healthcare!!!!
The government of Cuba is white, but 71% of the citizens are black.
That’s only a problem in Africa.
but Michael Moore and the congressional black caucus has told us that the Cuban system is perfect?
Obamacare is slavery for doctors, they will be required to work, and be told what their pay will be.
Coming soon to a neighborhood less than 90 miles from you.
So when is Michael Moore heading down there for his physical check-up?
Sure, and we'll have all the doctors we need, and every one will be well qualified. < /s>
I'm not stupid, I was taught to read before the teacher's unions destroyed that skill. And I grew up with grandparents who lived through the Great Depression.

Obama says slight fix will extend Social Security
Health Care Rationing for Seniors Another Problem in New Obama Plan
TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:
This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollees cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.)

Congress plans to block Tricare fee increases
By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009
Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators.
The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011.
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011.
President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees in fiscal 2010, Matz said. We took them at their word, and I cant believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward, he added.
