Dear Americans fight with all your might Obama's proposed Socialist Healthcare proposals. The British National Health Service (NHS) started life after WW2 with the noble intention of providing healthcare for all for free. Up untill around 1980 it worked very well depending on how much money the government was prepared to spend on it. After 1980 the socialist Left have slowly taken over most British institutions ,and have enforced Political Correctness with a Stalinist zeal. Britain is now not the democracy you may think it is. Britain now does not have any borders, and has been subjected to levels of immigration which are criminally irresponsible for such a small island nation. We are not alone as it is happening all over Europe, as prescribed by the "Frankfurt School". This has lead to the ridiculous situation whereby someone who has paid into the system all their lives suddenly loses their appointment to a newly arrived immigrant. In some towns in England people cannot find an NHS dentist because they are fully booked with new arrivals. Of course to complain is "Racist". I would say your system acts as a deterrent to unwanted immigration, and the British system in your country would be the beginning of the end of your country as you Know it.
