Another Reason to Avoid Government Run Health Care

I’m sure the doctors in Great Britain are very proud of the many folks they are able to help given the work load and strain placed on the purse strings since the entire system is socialized. A story hitting the news wires this morning shed light on the quality of care given, pardon my sarcasm. An eleven year old boy who’d grown up being partially deaf was surprised when a piece of cotton popped out of his ear and he “miraculously” was able to hear.

"I had always suspected Jerome had stuck something in his ear when he was little and that was causing the problem. But the doctors and hearing specialists said it was wax and he would probably grow out of it."

Maybe I shouldn’t be so hard on the top professionals who said he would grow out of it; after all, they were right and he did grow out of it, kind of sort of; if having a foreign object lodged in your ear that had been missed by exhaustive and thorough medical tests and exams by the finest health care providers Great Britain has to offer counts for anything. Thank goodness he didn’t need life saving medical help or it may have fallen on deaf ears.
