The Real Bulldog


I often refer to Ron Angle as the Northampton County Bulldog, but want to give you a glimpse at the real bulldog. He was a flawed man whose many imperfections have been chronicled. But he also knew how to lead, even when the British were getting the devil.

And he was the father of the British National Health Service (public option healthcare):...
"The discoveries of healing science must be the inheritance of all. That is clear. Disease must be attacked, whether it occurs in the poorest or the richest man or woman simply on the ground that it is the enemy; and it must be attacked just in the same way as the fire brigade will give its full assistance to the humblest cottage as readily as to the most important mansion. Our policy is to create a national health service in order to ensure that everybody in the country, irrespective of means, age, sex, or occupation, shall have equal opportunities to benefit from the best and most up-to-date medical and allied services available.

He was a flawed but fundamentally decent man of great intellect and character. Angle is a flawed man!

Comparison ended!

He was a conservative who understood that public option healthcare was economically the better choice. Now the UK pays less than the uS for health insurance, has the 18th best healthcare system in the world where we are the 37th, adn they live longer and pay less for pharmaceuticals, etc....a true conservative doesn't believe in paying more for less and keeping your population poorer and sicker.

Then perhaps you should allow conservatives to have more say in health care reform in the U.S. Shutting them out does not seem to be working, does it?

Churchill was a socialist.

96% of the US wants healthcare reform. 4% of the conservatives, including Dent, are overruled.

Between being pro-affordable health care and getting involved in a justified war that he won, there is no way Churchill would be accepted as a conservative in today's world.

Bernie, what insurance company do you have that you are so defensive of the insurance industry? You must be happy with it.

He was a socialist and a functioning drunk. And he was half American.
