There’s some food for thought there for those who choose to see it:
Read and ponder that, socialized medicine fans. A “judge will permit” a doctor to examine a patient. https://t.co/o3skpNFX1n

Think about it, “single-payer” cheerleaders.
Socialized medicine, y'all. https://t.co/ijFp6U4sTv

Single-payer: If you appeal endlessly, and live long enough to see those appeals through, a judge just might allow a doctor to examine you. https://t.co/bNmMXp1Bqn

This is the inevitable end result of any government-controlled health care system.

A judge will *allow* a doctor to examine a patient. This is what you get from government controlled healthcare folks. https://t.co/FGwMd4IUkN

A judge had to give permission for a 2nd opinion? That is a stupid system.

How did the UK get to the point where patients need permission from a judge to see a doctor? https://t.co/ICKjTNUgfq

Fascinating (and awful) that it is news that a family is "allowed" to have their own doctor examine their own child. https://t.co/Br5ETjKSEg
