Imagine hospitals as rife with vermin as Capitol Hill. That will be the situation once Democrats manage to engineer a government takeover of the healthcare industry. Once again, Britain provides a glimpse of a socialist future we would be wise to avoid:
The cleanliness of most NHS [National Health Service] hospitals in England is threatened by frequent invasions of rats, fleas, bedbugs, flies and cockroaches, a report claims.
Figures released by the Conservatives show that 70% of NHS Trusts brought in the pest controllers at least 50 times over a two-year period.
Vermin were found in wards, clinics and even operating theatres. A patients’ group said the situation was revolting.
Infestations have included wasps in a neonatal unit and in operating theaters, rats in a maternity unit, and a children’s accident & emergency ward taken over by flies. Among the other repugnant creatures found in Britain’s socialist hospitals are mice, silverfish, beetles, and bureaucrats, including a spokesman for the Health Protection Agency who shrugs off concerns:
In countries with good standards of healthcare the possibility for insects or pests to transmit infections in hospitals would be very remote.
Yes, but what about countries with socialized healthcare?
