Silly to advocate spending more on health? How come?
And now continuing with the silly postings:
Two problems with health:
I support the Hanly plan which offers some way out of the mess with a much more rational approach to the organisational side of things.
It stands to reason too that if we send only a fraction of what other European countries spend on helath per capita we have a lower standard of overall healthcare. The fact that we have to send unfortunates in need of transplants to other countries putting them at the mercy of a two-way international bureacracy leading to the mess highlighted during the week by the poor man himself on radio and TV
So we have to pay more taxes in order to have a better health service. There's no other way. You can't bemoan the tragic state of a dying man and not offer to pay more to avoid such cases occurring in the future. That's silly.
