Why Do We Want to Emulate Europe?

Any sentient person can browse the British papers and quickly see horror stories about their health care system.  Here's one from this morning: "Cheerleader has leg amputated after Doctors dismiss cancer as 'growing pains.'"  Four separate times over four months, Shannon Corr, was refused the opportunity to get a more comprehensive examination at a hospital because, her GP believed she was suffering from growing pains.  The pain became so bad that her mother took her to the hospital anyway claiming she had fallen so she could receive an examination.  The cancer was so far along that to save her life, they had to amputate the leg above the knee.

Think about this America, is this what you want for your children?
