Democrat Party Deputy Chair Goes Full Communist – Pushes Cuban Healthcare at Rally


Democrat Party Deputy Chair Keith Ellison pushed Cuban and Russian healthcare at a rally last week in Washington DC.

Keith Ellison: Why is it that countries like Cuba or Canada or Russia spend half of what we spend per capita and have better care than we do? The reason is because our system is not designed to keep people healthy. It is not designed to keep people well.

Of course, the failed American system he is talking about was designed and brought forth by the Democrat Party.

Here is what you can expect from a Cuban-style healthcare system.

Babalu reported on the Cuban healthcare myth and what you can expect if leftists like Keith Ellison gets his way:

Every single time the island of Cuba and Fidel Castro’s revolution are covered anywhere in the media one of the points always mentioned is Cuba’s free healthcare. You can practically time it. If it’s in print, you get the lead issue in the first and second paragraph, a mention of fidel castro or one of his cronies in the third paragraph and then the plug for the lauded free healthcare available to Cubans in the fourth. I dont think Ive ever read an article about castro or Cuba where the “healthcare” isnt mentioned.

Every single Castro supporter clings to this healthcare thing like it is some kind of holy grail. In a debate, the fact that Cuba has the most political prisoners in the world is ignored. The fact that Cubans on the island lack even the most basic of necessities is ignored. Tourism apartheid is ignored. Everything is ignored save for the free healthcare and 100% literacy.

Of course, none of these Free healthcare! cheerleaders have ever been to a Cuban hospital. They’ve never been to a Cuban clinic. Hospitals and clinics serving the average Cuban, that is.

Cockroaches. Twenty-seven of them to be exact. All swept together after having been squashed by patients and patrons of “El Hospital Clinico Quirurgico de la Habana.”

And imagine having to take a loved one to the hospital and when you get there, this is what the common area looks like the above.

And, a doctor’s office with a sign saying there are no prescriptions available.
