Is Health Care a Right?
Mike Rappaport

As a matter of political theory, that may be a useful question, but as a matter of politics, the better question is, how can we make as much high quality health care available as possible at a reasonable cost?

But let's assume it is helpful to talk about health care being a right.  So aren't Canada and England depriving their citicizens of rights when they force them to get on 6 month waiting lists for medical procedures?

It's 4 months for us now. After the wait to get on the waiting list. And with the proviso that if something else - e.g. a different medical problem - intrudes, you are taken off the waiting list and then, when you are ready for the operation again, you restart your 4 month wait. My wife has several French friends who've lived in Britain for decades and plan to stay here when they retire. But each is considering finding a cheap property in France to buy so that they are entitled to pop over the Channel and use the French Health Service.

This is a pretty good list. I have recently come across a few company blog that have comments disabled. I can’t for the life of me understand this. A blog isn’t a blog without comments. come on people. I would never come back or subscribe to a blog that has no comments.

So long as people believe that socialized medicine is a noble plan, there is no way to fight it.
