Cuban leader Fidel Castro has long prided himself on Cuba’s doctors and free public health care system, but that system seems to have let him down after he fell ill in July , U.S.-based doctors said on Tuesday.But come on - how is the libertarian and conservative blogosphere even reporting this? Doctors that have no first-hand knowledge of Castro's condition? Its pure conjecture and I'm embarrassed to even be wasting the time on this.
Based on a report in Tuesday’s edition of Spain’s El Pais newspaper, the doctors – who have no first-hand knowledge of Castro’s condition – said Castro had received questionable or even botched care at the hands of health experts on his communist-ruled island.
Those that are quoting this as some sort of "proof" that socialized medicine doesn't work should be ashamed of themselves.
