Socialized Medicine means Less Access to Life Saving Cancer Drugs

Betsy Newmark has a great post that explains how free health care is not free. You’ll pay for it one way or another: either in really high tax rates that would destroy the economy or with your life. The section of her post that explains “that British patients, despite their socialized health care, in case after case are more likely to die [from cancer] because of lack of access to new drugs” is particularly compelling.

Update: For those liberals who think socialized medicine is the most brilliant thing since sliced bread, read the comments by BlacquesJacquesShell here and here as well as James Cloninger here.
