Add Another Universal Healthcare Horror Story to the List


Check out this story from Britain, where a mother pregnant with twins was transferred between four hospitals in five days (250 miles in all) because the hospitals lacked the needed equipment.

At the end of the whole ordeal they still had to take one of her babies to another hospital because of a lack of incubators.


Still think universal healthcare sounds like a good idea? The US is already facing a shortage of 35,000 to 40,000 primary care doctors by 2012. All the touchy feeliness in the world won't change the fact that making healthcare "free" will cause the kind of resource scarcity here that Britain experiences every day.

Duh. How come Britain is an example of state-provided universal healthcare? Why don’t you check some civilized country’s, like Sweden’s?

I believe that it would be beneficial to you if the agent had prior experiences in finding, listing, and selling properties in your area of interest.
Despite the fact that Pakistan real estate offers competitive returns and quick capital appreciation, many people
are inclined to invest in sectors other than real estate due to impeding energy crises and rapidly growing inflation.

With regards to rental properties a guarantor is a person
who takes on the role of paying the rent or meeting any liabilities related to the rented property in case the tenant ceases to pay the
rent.
