Y’all have probably heard by now about the tragic case of UK baby Charlie Gard. His parents sought an experimental treatment for their son’s brain in order to keep him alive and the Gov’t said no. It went to the UK Supreme Court and they too said no.
Now, those people who are paid by the health insurance industry to keep single-payer from becoming law all use this case as an example of why government shouldn’t be involved in health care.
Even CNN’s Jake Tapper framed the question about Gard’s case to industry-bribed Chuck Schumer as a case of gov’t being the wrong place to run health care.
THIS IS PURPOSELY MISLEADING BULLSHIT.
What they fail to tell you are the details of the case and why the government refused to allow the treatment. (treatment would not improve the life of the infant)
The reason they fail to tell you and instead play this game to fool you is because they’re all bought and sold by the insurance industry, who won’t make a lot of profit under Single Payer.
