UNIVERSAL HEATH CARE: NATIONAL CENTER VS. NEW REPUBLIC

Amy Ridenour's National Center blog takes on the New Republic over "universal health care" here, with a follow-up post regarding the uninsured here. I've not written often about health care, mostly because it's such a complex topic. Luckily, Ms. Ridenour has some enlightening links that support my thoughts on this issue, particularly this one (PDF file). She describes it as "a brisk survey of the history and results of socialized medicine worldwide by Canadian economist Pierre Lemieux." There are some good facts in this report; things that are worth reading. Check it out.

Socialized medecine, or a "one-payer system," is not the way to go. Eventually, everyone pays in some way.
