Investor's Business Daily (A US Financial Newspaper) produced to date the most embarrassing & most rediculous effort to discredit Obama's plan for nationalized healthcare.

"People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn't have a chance in the UK, where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless."

This was amidst the slurs they flung at the NHS.

Newsflash Mr Big Wig US Newspaper ...

Stephen Hawking is both BRITISH and NOT DEAD. ;)

"I wouldn’t be here today if it were not for the NHS," Hawking told The Guardian. "I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived."

Quote:
"The paper has since been notified that Hawking is both British and still among the living. And it has edited the editorial, acknowledging that the original version incorrectly represented the whereabouts of perhaps the world's most famous scientific mind. But it has not acknowledged that its mention of Hawking misrepresented the NHS as well."

Of course not. :p

Some bigwig US citizen didn't do any research, or check facts? No. Can't be.

People see specialists outside their country all the time. You have no valid point.
