Chavez Dying  

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

... evidently due to GOVERNMENT HEALTHCARE.

In this story at NetRight Daily, it's revealed that the "healthcare system" in Venezuela isn't good enough to treat Chavez's condition, so he's been taken to Cuba, where things aren't any better.

Talk about desperate ... and so SWEETLY FUCKING IRONIC!

This quote from the end of the piece sums it up quite nicely:

But in Venezuela, Hugo Chavez would have received mediocre care, and made the gamble that he would be better off in an undisclosed Cuban hospital, where he apparently is still receiving mediocre care. Single payer health systems are bad, and Hugo Chavez is now experiencing this first hand.

So sweetly fucking ironic ...
