Anyone have the photos handy of the Cuban hospitals?
AP get a life you bunch of propaganda idiots! You stooges like Cuba's health care so much, pack your damn bags and move there! You won't have to worry about having the socialized health care repealed, after all, this is the reason for the article, your attempt to convince Americans what a great deal they got in the socialized Obamacare!
Next time one of you ignorant idiots go to a doctor's office, ask the doctor who you are giving your personal health issues to, your personal doctor, or the government the doctor now works for?
Choice? Wait until an 87 year old American asks for bypass surgery and he or she is told they can't have it by a panel of bureaucrats in Washington and they pass away, the family can't sue the government for wrongful death, they are immune under Obamacare, and this is only the beginning until the conservatives smack this crap back to the socialist where this shit came from!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way, want to bet Cuba does not provide free, free, free contraceptives and condoms to their citizens either!!!!
There are some pictures here that are not for the squeamish:
How much to ‘journalists’ make in Cuba vs. the US. Unlike with medicine, that’s a fair comparison because the quality is the same.
But you die.
The next time one these Marxist bozos gets a serious illness, we’ll give them a choice: Cuba or the U.S. for their medical care. I’m willing to bet a lot of money 99% will choose American care. 1% (the terminally stupid) will choose Cuba for ideological reasons, literally cutting off their noses to spite their faces.
What medical care? Even their leaders leave or bring a doctor in.
Medical costs in the USA were under control until the government got involved. Same with housing costs, and higher education costs. The involvement of Medicare and Medicaid, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and student loans and grants contributed to the huge costs to citizens. Once the gov’t gets involved watch the costs go up.
The fools who attempt to compare medical care in the United States to medical care in third world hell holes conveniently forget that health care costs less if you don't have to take care of people who arrive alive at the emergency rooms with very serious conditions because our nation has ambulances, EMTs, emergency dispatch, and even helicopters to get the most seriously injured or sick to specialized care quickly.
How many Americans are putting their lives in danger by trying to float from Miami to Havana on a raft?
What is the monthly wage for the average Cuban?
Or the average Cuban doctor?
I wonder if this ‘reporter’ (whorenalist) understands how that figures into the cost
Drums beating, nurses chanting, while the doctor dances around you with a burning chicken liver hanging from the end of a stick.
I could see how a reporter or dim politician could spend a few days in Havana and think things are great. when we got out in the small towns the communist followed us around and harassed the nationals we were working with. when they felt safe to tell us the truth a very different picture of Cuba emerged. Rice, beans, and fruit at every meal and almost never meat. They have cows on farms but if an average Cuban got caught killing or eating 1, 25 years in prison; at age 7 kids lose their milk ration. “Yes we all have free health care but if you are rich or a higher up in the party you get better care and don't have to wait”.
Maybe if US doctors and nurses would just take a pay cut. Why should we be paying them $100s of thousands of dollars a year to kill us with germs all over our dirty hospital rooms, their equipment, their clothes and their hands? We could pay the $1 an hour like they do in Cuba where hospitals are obviously cleaner.
makes perfect sense to me. a fraction of the cost for a fraction of the treatment.
I would like to see all RATs required to go to Cuba for treatment and obtain such treatment in the same manner and queue as the typical average Cuban. That would be my health care plan for the US.
