Another proud moment for socialised medicine | Samizdata.net

Only Big Government could simultaneously deliver a shortage of a drug in a State hospital, combined with an irrepressible abundance of the same drug, sold illegally on the streets outside.

Don't knock the NHS! Whatever big government's faults they pale in comparison to the farce that is US health care. Show me a "small government" health system that works.

It's like you think there is a better alternative. There's not. The NHS does profound things with what it's got. On the other hand, show me a "small government" health solution that works. US health care is a farce. They spend relatively more than the UK on health yet achieve much less in population coverage. That's inefficiency. Tell, isn't the free market supposed to have that - the 'efficiency' thing or have we forgotten about that?
