Improving health care

Just spent 40 minutes waiting for a blood test. The drawing of blood takes 30 seconds. One vial ia all. But the local lab has a monopoly. Some people waited an hour this morning for test. There was a man in a wheelchair, who had been fasting nearly 18 hours. He was not given priority despite his handicap and his fast.
The lab also has rules regarding early morning tests. No non-fasting test done before 9. It's crazy.

Socialism can bring improvements to all and yet not meet the needs of all. Combined with capitalism, it can completely fail us all.
