is there really anybody who is astonished about this unfair treatment? For me it is not surprising, but a clear sign in what a antisocial and cynical world we live in reality. It's like the caste system of india - but, we are so civilized and modern...
BTW: in Germany the same happens with the wealthy Arabs - there is a real health tourism around them, because they come to get the best treatment for their health issues.
Thanks, dear Freya

Shared news article and analysis over social media to raise and spread awareness

The American and British systems of Health Care appear to have a lot in common. . . . and would change OVERNIGHT if the rich and wealthy had to experience what one experiences in the resource strapped NHS.

Yes it's certainly reminiscent of the Indian caste system Kalliope!!!
This doesn't happen in Oz yet, is why we MUST diligently protect our health care system!

A national health care system would even things out quite a lot but short of a revolution, the wealthy are always going to do better for healthcare, legal issues and just about everything else. However, at the same time I saw on the American news last night that a growing number of retired doctors are coming back into service to provide care for the poor and those who are uninsured. I also saw that many Americans are going south of the border to Mexico for dental work as it is significantly cheaper.

Bernie wants and wanted single payer but the corrupt DNC cheated him out of the nomination.......so we have the DNC to thank for all of these awful things.....and it will grow worse.
