I was listening to am radio...a country is now using Skype for you to call in- then they decide who will/will not see a doctor. There are no longer appointments. They decide if young/old will be seen, or id too ill for care.
I was shocked. I did not hear which country this was and could not Google it.
Anyone hear this?
Obama Care.... soon to be here...
