Here's something else to look forward to.

Britain's just found a glitch in it's medical databases that keep track of willing organ donors. Over the past decade, this glitch has caused some 800,000 mistakes in who's willing to donate what.

Eighty. Thousand. Organ donor errors. Per year.

I haven't heard of anything on this magnitude in any free market health care system. Sure, everywhere's got it's glitches, but in a free market system, those glitches mean a loss of trust, which leads to a loss of revenue, which leads to the business that refuses to admit there's a problem, much less correct it, to go bankrupt. Government doesn't have that problem--at least, until the money runs out because the taxpayers have been bled to death to support that given society's dead weight.
