John Stossel interviews Sally Pipes on health care. I heard her on the radio today tell a chilling tale of what happened to her own mother under government run health care. When her mom feared she had colon cancer, she went to the doctor who, without testing her, simply told her "No, you don't". When Sally told her mom to insist on a colonoscopy, the doctor told her she was too old and there were younger people waiting in line for that particular test. Later, when she was taken to the hospital bleeding, she spent two days waiting in the ER, two more days in transition waiting for a hospital bed and within two weeks, she was dead. But, she did her part to keep health care costs down!
