Top Democrat On Senate Health Committee Hails Cuban Health Care System

The Democratic vision for America – A Cuban Health Care System

A Cuban toilet… In a Cuban hospital.

Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), the top Democrat on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, returned from Cuba this week and promoted its healthcare system.
The Washington Times reported:
    Sen. Tom Harkin, the Democratic chair of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, returned from a weeklong tour of Cuba with a somewhat shocking assessment: The poverty-stricken nation does much better in protecting children from dying than America.

    “[Cuba‘s] a poor country, but they have a lower child mortality rate than ours,” he told reporters Wednesday, the National Journal reported. “Their life expectancy is now greater than ours. It’s interesting — their public health system is quite remarkable.”

    Mr. Harkin balked at suggesting America should adopt Cuba’s public health plan, but touted the socialist state’s reported low infection rate in hospitals. The country has performed admirably in decreasing the numbers of smokers via public health campaigns, he said.

Terrific. So this is what Democrats want for America?
More cockroaches – less sanitary supplies.

Cockroaches. Twenty-seven of them to be exact. All swept together after having been squashed by patients and patrons of “El Hospital Clinico Quirurgico de la Habana.” (The Real Cuba)

And imagine having to take a loved one to the hospital and when you get there, this is what the common area looks like the above.

This is a closeup shot of the floors where patients are actually tended to.

And, a doctor’s office with a sign saying there are no prescriptions available.

In March 2010, Cuba’s Marxist dictator praised Obama and Democrats for nationalizing health care.
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776

Video taken at the Hijas de Galicia Maternity Hospital in Havana last year.
In any civilized country, a hospital like this one would be closed by the health authorities.
Not even an animal hospital would be allowed to remain open under such filthy conditions.
Fidel Castro would have died years ago if he was forced to go to one of these hospitals.
Next time a Castro apologist claims that Cubans receive excellent health care thanks to the Castro brothers, send him this video.
“[Euthanasia] is what any State medical service has sooner or later got to face. If you are going to be kept alive in institutions run by and paid for by the State, you must accept the State’s right to economize when necessary …” The Ministry of Fear by Graham Green (New York: Penguin Books [1943] 2005, p. 165).
