Sheila Jackson Lee on Chinese Health Care
National Review Online ^ | 1/19/11 | Robert Costa

Posted on 01/19/2011 5:30:10 PM PST by Nachum

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) made headlines this week for claiming that health-care repeal means “killing Americans.” In an exchange with National Review Online at the Capitol tonight, she used China as an example of universal coverage. From the tape: JACKSON LEE: I was with a Chinese delegation in Texas on Sunday, and one [visitor] came up to me and said, ‘What is this debate about health care? We think this is something everybody should have in China.’ That’s what this person said to me; he was baffled. Of course, their system is different. NRO: They’re communist.

China has no national health care for average citizens.

Ferociously arrogant and pathetically uninformed/misinformed.

Without the slightest hint of insight.

Sure they do! It's called take what we give you and like it or we shoot you and put an end to the matter here and now!

***”..she used China as an example of universal coverage.****

If she ever goes into a hospital maybe her anesthetic should be little accupuncture pins.

But then, maybe she has a doll for that!

I would never defend SJL, but I’ve got to tell you, we got a half-hour exam/consult with both doctor and nurse, and three perscriptions for twenty-two dollars when we took my chinese daughter to the doctor for a nasty chest cold last year.

No, they don’t fix harelips or clubbed feet, but that office visit cost the same as my co-pay here at home.

"China has no national health care for average citizens."

This is correct, and Americans should have this echoed in their ears until they are half deaf.

Health care in China is very, very poor, and any better health care is given on preferential bases.

    The Communist Chinese health care system:
  1. Give the patient an aspirin.
  2. When you run out of aspirin, shoot the patient in the head and harvest their organs for transplants.

This is the caliber of elected officials we now have representing, or not representing us. This woman is an absolute idiot. Cavuto politely and respectfully interviewed her about the healthcare issue and she talked over him time and time again with the same garbage talking points and then insulted him by saying that it was his problem that he couldn't logically comprehend the healthcare bill.

Everyone in the US does have health care. Everyone does NOT have health insurance. Still, everyone can get care. That seems to get lost in the discussion.

Almost 300 million in China have no insurance. Funny how low the price of a doctor’s office visit will go when they know you don’t have any insurance.

Was she the one Neil Cavuto was yelling at today? She is dense. And in China, the more money you have, the better health coverage you get. That’s what she wants Obamacare to emulate?

Or can't sue the doctor.

This particular doctor's office was in a four star hotel where they get six bucks a can for diet coke...

Actually, Shiela Jackson Lee is a big fan of CastroCare.

She has often referred to Cuba as having "the best healthcare system in the world".

Yeah, she's a moron. And a full-fledged socialist.

If Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is so enamored with Chinese health care, let’s deport her to Ulan Bator, Mongolia, for the rest of her miserable life. She’s so deserving of this honor.

Whenever I want to understand a complicated subject, I always ask SJL.

She always has an answer, and as long as there is a camera, microphone, or reporter around, she is more than willing to share her vast knowledge and wisdom.

I am still waiting, however, to hear how she funded that trip to LA to attend Michael Jackson’s funeral. Local reporters never were able to pry that out of her.

China used to have some good practices regarding health care but they've probably gone by the wayside now. Traditionally a family paid the village doctor a monthly fee. If someone got sick they stopped payments until the doctor got them well. They could pay him in chickens, eggs and vegetables too.

Might not work with a cardiac surgeon or a neurologist.

There is effectively nothing outside of the major cities. Moreover, the AVERAGE income in China is about $2k. What we think is inexpensive in China is very expensive for the Chinese. In addition, much of the care is “TCM” (traditional Chinese medicine), which on the whole is just quackery. BTW, I was in China 3 times last year. Fortunately, I didn’t need medical care.
