Truth or Consequences -- the Beth Ashmore Chronicle

Physician Jonathan Cargan alerted me to this video on the horrors of single-payer health care in Great Britain entitled, "Truth or Consequences -- the Beth Ashmore Chronicle".

According to the producers, the National Association of Health Underwriters:
Our new single payer video "Truth or Consequences—the Beth Ashmore Chronicle" demonstrates through the personal experiences of Beth Ashmore and her mother why the purported advantages of a single-payer health care system are really myths. The Beth Ashmore Chronicle offers real world evidence of the inadequacies of the single payer concept versus the quality and expediency of our current private market health care system.
Just one additional comment in response to a line in the video: There is a solution to the current health care problems in the US -- the free market.
