Healthcare Part II: The European Model

For decades and decades, progressives liberals have lifted up European socialized medicine as the model to which America should aspire. This, in spite of the dismal facts about the effectiveness of nationalized health care. According to European parliament member Daniel Hannan, people are terrified of entering government-run hospitals in England, where 7,000 people died in one year from afflictions picked up in hospitals. Those with prostate cancer are four times as likely to die as their counterparts in the U.S. The survival rate for diseases like breast cancer, heart disease and stroke is a quarter of what it is in the U.S. There’s a reason why our forefathers left the European continent: Freedom. Free market principles and choices translate into higher quality care.
