    If only the United States were more like Europe, Joy Behar laments. Recapping the previous night’s debate on the October 9 edition of "The View," the panel discussed John McCain’s healthcare plan. In the midst of the conversation Joy Behar wondered why the United States can not "solve" health care like quasi-socialist governments in Europe.

    "What they haven’t discussed in any of these debates is how other countries have solved this. France has solved it, Denmark has solved it, England has solved it. Why can’t we solve it? [applause] It’s ridiculous."


    But have the mentioned countries really "solved" their health care issues? Take for example Britain, which Joy refers to as "England." "The Daily Telegraph" reported in September that Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) is in such crisis that some doctors are "calling for NHS treatment to be withheld from patients who are too old or lead unhealthy lives."

    The "Telegraph" continued that "smokers, heavy drinkers, the obese and the elderly should be barred from receiving operations, according to doctors, with most saying the health service cannot afford to provide free care to everyone." In what may also alarm Joy Behar, who considers abortion opponents "against women," the "Telegraph" reports "fertility treatment and ‘social’ abortions are also on the list of procedures that many doctors say should not be funded by the state."

    And the Imbecile of the Year Award goes to.........Joy Behar without any close seconds. Next time she's ill (physically) she should deliberately without treatment for at least a month and had to add weeks to her waiting time for any diagnostic tests or months if she has to see a specialist. Then it will be just like living in Britain and going to the NHS for care. They Don't 'Do' Big Fat People Either !"

    Behar can move her ugly ass to Europe if she doesn't like it here in the USA.

    This sounds like the conversation I had with an idiot friend of mine recently while trying to explain inflation where he said "the economy will never collapse, we can always just print more money".:eek:

    Yet another reason why nobody watches the View. Morons.

    I wonder if those harpies are aware of the fact that breast cancer survival rates in the UK are much lower than they are in the USA? Ditto for other common cancers.

    If you have what amounts to infinite demand for finite resources, you will have to ration the resource one way or another. You can have people self-select out of the demand based on price or other factors or you can have the government designate a sufficiently large pool of people to become ineligible to make the demand.

    The View will be Baba WaWa's legacy, which is a shame, she used to be a respected journalist.

    These ladies are so in the tank for Obama, I'd have more respect for them if they would just wear Obama buttons and duct tape Elisabeth's mouth.
