Resources on Rebutting Socialized Medicine

I came across some interesting resources today.

First off, there's a book by physician David Gratzer -- The Cure: How Capitalism Can Save American Health Care.

Also, there's a collection of short films showing the limitations involved in a single-payer system:  These are available to watch online right now, and soon they'll be released on DVD.

Uninsured in America examines the conventional wisdom that 45 million Americans cannot get health insurance and consequently do not have access to health care. (2007) Run Time: 9:03

Two Women serves as a cautionary lesson about a politicized health care system where politicians and bureaucrats determine medical priorities. (2007) Run Time: 4:32

A Short Course in Brain Surgery highlights the plight of an Ontario man with a cancerous brain tumor who crossed the border to the U.S. to get the medical care that is rationed in his home country. (2006) Run Time: 5:36

The Lemon demonstrates how single-payer health care systems have a lot in common with the failed economic systems of Soviet-era eastern Europe. (2007) Run Time: 7:46

Have a great day!

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
