How Socialized Medicine Could Save The US Billions

A new proposal being floated around Washington DC is called the Delayed Treatment Program (DTP) which could save the nation hundreds of billions in medical costs. Quite simply, treatment for cancer patients would be delayed until 60 days after their death. A patient would simply have to show a valid death certificate and within 60 days they'd recieve unlimited medical treatment for their cancer. The savings could triple the amounts of treatment that can go towards AIDs patients.

This system has been tried on a limited basis in some European socialist medical systems with promising results in cost savings. If this program is successful it can be expanded for cardiovascular and many other life threatening treatments.

Isnt socialism just gran
