Default Simon Cowell donates to sick girl - why?

Simon Cowell donates $160,000 to save girl's life.

Question for the folks here who think we need government health care:

The girl is British. She needs an $800,000 operation in New York.

Why is the British NHS not performing the treatments? Or even the Canadians?

Serious question.

I think we all know the answer to that.

Of course, if she was related to a politician, she'd be in.

In addition to not being free, one can glean from the article that her survival rates are MUCH higher if she gets the treatment here rather than England.

Innovation is stifled when the gov't rations care.

Remember, in the old USSR the grocery stores had nothing on the shelves, yet the politicians had special stores where they could buy goods. Sound familiar?

We just need one stipulation with this stupid health care bill: Anything they come up with will be mandatory for all government employees for life, including the Prez 'The Messiah' himself. Now we will see how many votes it gets.

My ass hurts! And I'm supposed to be able to feel my ass! Why? Why can't they figure how to stop my ass from hurting? God Damn It! If we do get Govt. Health Care, it will be like Kaiser...unless you have an ingrown toenail, or a slight rash, Kaiser is next to worthless. Too many patients. I hates dat Kaiser ahyuk yuk yuk...but I loves my spinach!

Well, no answers, so I guess we have no Obamacare supporters here. Good to know.

The new Federal concept of healthcare for those who will be productive enough to warrant it answers your questions. Even if the govt approves it the service will be rationed and take months or years to get instead of days. We will have the same high rate of cancer fataliies that Britain and Canada have.

Haven't read any comparative data in the govt controlled press (ABC, CBS, NPR, etc) have you? No and you won't either. Buy health insurance or face a fine and jail time. In the land of the free.
