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.
WikiLeaks Cable: Venezuela
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)
