Quote of the day

Yeah, a lot of us could have told him this:

In the past two months, I have spent many hours accompanying a loved one to hospital emergency rooms -- all of them privately operated. The rap on what is sometimes called socialized medicine is that if the government ran the system, the wait would be interminable. Well, I am here to tell you that even when the government does not run the system, the wait can be interminable.

    Alas, I have known people who were quite sick who chose to go home where they could at least lie down rather than sit in a waiting room chair waiting for medical care.
    Yet, there are so many who claim our medical system is not broken.
