    Tumors on the uterus? Excruciating pain? Doubled over and writhing on the ground? Here, take these painkillers and live with it for six months. We'll probably be ready to do something about it by then.

    And remember that we're sure this medical system will be far better than the private one you used to have, if only government liberals are given enough money, and enough power to impose their plans on you.

    'Britain's unluckiest bride': Newlywed hospitalised twice on her big day... then has wedding and engagement rings stolen

    It was supposed to be the happiest day of her life... but Yvonne Wilson would happily forget walking up the aisle. The 37-year-old has been dubbed Britain's unluckiest bride after she was rushed to hospital twice on her big day, had to abandon her dream honeymoon and had her wedding and engagement rings stolen.

    After the wedding party moved to a local park for official photographs to be taken Mrs Wilson, 37, was struck down by agonising pains.

    Leaving her husband, 51, to meet the arriving guests, Mrs Wilson was rushed to nearby Rotherham District Hospital by bridesmaid Sue Vickers. After being examined by doctors in the Accident and Emergency department, Mrs Wilson was given painkillers and released.

    She returned to her wedding reception but was hit by more pain as the party was ending at 1am and had to return to the hospital. The following day she had further examinations and after a scan two weeks later doctors discovered she had a fibroid - a benign tumour on her womb that would require surgery to remove.

    But when doctors revealed there was a six month waiting list for the operation, Mr and Mrs Wilson decided to cancel their £3,000 Caribbean holiday in Barbados and instead use the cash for a private operation.

    Then in a final cruel twist, Mrs Wilson's wedding and engagement rings were stolen from a house where she was working as a mobile beautician. She had removed the rings to carry out the treatment but forgot them when she left. The property was burgled the following night and the jewellery was stolen.

    it would be much better in America...where there is a good change you did not have coverage at all...and you got no health care...right?

    also news flash, America is not the UK...even if we went to single payer...does not mean its the same thing...

    Yes, folks, we now have proof positive that there is at least one, um, person remaining in this great land, who is NOT aware that American hospitals treat ALL patients regardless of coverage or ability to pay.

    You probably thought that, even with the miserable publik eddicashun such ignoramouses get, they would have eventually heard about that, after the years of screaming we've all endured for the last several years.

    But nope, nope, step right up! I give you POCKETFULLOFSHELLS, the only remaining human left in American who hasn't a clue!

    And will probably remain that way even after this thread is long gone, biding his time for the next time he can offer his usual lies as truth, and hope that nobody debunks him yet again.


    Yet.

    But where do YOU think the new Obamacare "Race to the Bottom" will wind up?
