Universal health care. Dying for an MRI.

Girl dies of brain tumor after doctors tell her 'headaches are just stress'

This 22 year old in the UK died after waiting 13 weeks for an MRI. She didn't make it to the test, never found out about the brain tumor that would take her life.

I am not saying I am for universal health care. If you know anything about my situation, then you know things in the United States aren't so hot either. There has got to be a better way, something better than both of these. I'm not pretending I have the brains or skill to pull this off. There are just so many things wrong on so many levels with both systems, and I fear it will get far worse before it gets better.

In any case, it is inexcusable.
