    Waiting times are an issue in the US. Anyone who wants gastric bypass surgery is going to wait a year to get it. A woman who schedules her mammogram must call for an appt. 6 months in advance. If you have acute bursitis, plan on seeing the doctor next week. These are current waiting times in the US for people with insurance.

    BTW,
    I don't say Stossel is all wrong. His sources are accurate.
    I'm saying he's a spin doctor. He points out only his side.
    If you regularly read my diaries, you might have noticed I've posted a couple where I've been flamed for my position on health care.

    You might have noted that the Karen Ingnagni bio page is from the CommonWealth Fund's site. She's not all wrong either.
