VodkaPundit calls this column on WSJ required reading:
What follows is his account of the differences between public and private hospitals in Britain, compared to hospitals his wife then stayed at once they got back to the U.S. It's a pretty even handed column, with criticisms and applause given to both sides. What it boils down to, and I have said this before, is that socialized medicine is no perfect solution. You get what you pay for... and they pay a lot, even if it doesn't come in the form of a direct bill. But then again, the U.S. system has it's share of problems to. It's all about trade offs. Either way, the column is well worth the time to read.
