Hugo Chavez a victim of Cuban health care? “…by choosing secrecy in Cuba over medical competence at the Sirio-Libanese Hospital in Sao Paulo… Chavez had condemned himself to a shorter life.” Believing one’s own BS is bad, but believing Michael Moore’s is worse. The irony meter is working overtime today.

Yeah, me too… kept looking for the death cert.

Reminds me.. Fidel is allegedly still alive, right? Maybe that’s why Chavez went to Cuba. Their health care system must be like Spain’s back in the day when Marcos took 10 years to die. They must just induce some kind of perpetual coma soze they can say… Hey! He’s still alive!

Yeah, it’s free. And worth every penny.
If by fair, you mean if your name is Castro or Chavez you get better care than Juan, who cuts sugarcane 12 hrs a day for 30 cents, well I guess someone thinks that’s fair. My guess is it ain’t Juan.

Third world country=third world healthcare. We may have some issues to work out, particularly in the area of access, but we have the best healthcare in the world, hands down. That’s why every teaching hospital has residents from all over the planet coming here for training. And a significant proportion will stay here, not take that knowledge to the backwater they are from!
