Swedish Health Care: A Hard Case

Maybe this story will bring the health care debate close to home for some readers.  (HT: JammieWearingFool.)

"But it took five MONTHS before he was able to schedule an appointment at the hospital.  When he finally met with doctors at the hospital, the man was informed he had cancer and his penis would have to be removed."

This happened in Sweden, land of government-run health care.

However, the experts tell us that this "waiting list" issue of government-run health care is a myth and a meme created by conservatives.

"No evidence is presented that waiting times within the system adversely affect clinical outcomes, and no distinction is made between ‘need' and ‘desire' on the part of patients who bypass waiting lists."

I think we have some evidence now.  Not sure if it would stand up in court, though.  On the other hand, does a man "need" his penis, or just "desire" it?  What will ObamaCare's panels say?
