    WikiLeaks Cable: Venezuela’s medical system in disarray

    According to the document, Venezuelan doctors accused their government of “politicizing health care at the expense of the health of Venezuelans.” :

    In recent months, protests have paralyzed hospitals across Venezuela as doctors and patients have complained of shortages of medical supplies, delays in hospital renovations and unpaid wages and benefits. Observers describe public hospitals as increasingly dangerous places where underpaid, undersupplied, and understaffed doctors struggle to provide medical services to Venezuela's poor. Critics say that the GBRV has created a parallel medical system-"Barrio Adentro"-that has sucked resources away from the traditional hospital network and reduced the overall quality of medical services. The GBRV has suspended doctors for speaking out about the crisis while giving former military officers and community councils a greater role in hospital administration.

    "Venezuelan doctors accused their government of “politicizing health care at the expense of the health of Venezuelans.”

    Isn't it great that our politicians are above behaving like Hugo Chavez?

    That our politicians would take the utmost care when passing our healthcare laws to ensure the free market functions exceptionally, and not resort to bribes, lies, backroom deals and forcing some form of socialist crap down our throats without the public being informed about or the lawmakers having read such bills before passing them?


    Everyone in Venezuela is covered, isn't that comforting and compassionate? Oh! I forget the key word... it's free too! (Because in the liberal mind there is such a thing as a free lunch)

    It will take about 15 years for older Americans to realize what they've lost but the new generation will adapt to the government system and accept the low quality service and rationed health care as normal, just as they do wherever sociailized medicine is tried.

    wow,
    expand health care to an entire population instead of just the wealthy, without expanding the number of health care providers or the budget for supplies
    who could have anticipated any shortfall [/s]

    btw, how many new medical schools are we building here?
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    ****ing Wikileaks need to die, except for when we can score partisan points.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    You're the one making the claims, remember?

    You must have some support for these claims, right?

    Spud, I did say the Gay Soldier who leaked these docs should be executed. I believe Julian Fries should be imprisoned, but the docs are out there now and do provide some interesting insight, much of which the press should be reporting, but being expert journOlists haven't, and won't. Instead they'll behave like the Lapdogs for Obama that they are, and frantically paw away to cover the doo-doo's.

    So pardon me for bringing to light in leaked cables what journalists should have done... report the truth.
