    ..............

    During my time in Venezuela, I developed a cough that went on for three weeks and progressively worsened. Finally, after I had become incredibly congested and developed a fever, I decided to attend a Barrio Adentro clinic. The closest one available was a Barrio Adentro II Centro de Diagonostico Integral (CDI) and I headed in without my medical records or calling to make an appointment. Immediately, I was ushered into a small room where Carmen, a friendly Cuban doctor, began questioning me about my symptoms. She listened to my lungs and walked me over to another examination room where, again without waiting, I had x-rays taken. Afterwards, the technician walked me to a chair and apologized profusely that I had to wait for the x-rays to be developed, promising that it would take no more than five minutes. Sure enough, five minutes later he returned with both x-rays developed. Carmen studied the x-rays and informed me that I had pneumonia, showing me the telltale shadows. She sent me away with my x-rays, three medications to treat my pneumonia, congestion, and fever, and made me promise to come back if my conditioned failed to improve or worsened within three days.

    I walked out of the clinic with a diagnosis and treatment within twenty-five minutes of entering, without paying a dime. There was no wait, no paperwork, and no questions about my ability to pay, my nationality, or whether, as a foreigner, I was entitled to free comprehensive health care. There was no monetary value connected with my physical well-being; the care I received was not contingent upon my ability to pay. I was treated with dignity, respect, and compassion, my illness was cured and I was able to continue with my journey in Venezuela.

    1. Now that Al Franken
    has been confirmed everything will be ok. We will have national health care by christmas, the reccession should be over by the end of the week. I predict solar shingles that will solve our energy problem by spring. I have also heard he may ressurrect Jacko.

    Huh... that sounds like the exact same treatment I've gotten anytime I've gone to see the doctor.

    Lets not forget the fact that this is a blatant bouncy though... Even liberal friendly wikipedia has nothing but nasty picture to paint for venezualen health care.

    What a disappointment! I was hoping the link contained something about Liberals and the Hale Bopp Comet.

    What a load.

    Gee, someday I think that I might suggest to my Boss that a trip to Venezuela is just what the Doctor ordered.


    Do you think that the Boss would buy it?
    These are not the good old days.
