The Obama administration is pushing for a government provided “medicare option” for all US citizens. Recent comments by Rep. Schakowsky indicate that this is merely the camel’s nose under the tent. The real goal is a Canadian style single-payer system.

Unfortunately, most Americans aren’t familiar with the astounding, often life threatening stories of government run health care systems that regularly appear in foreign papers. Dr. Gov is intended to be an online repository of media reports, stories and information about the many wonders of government run health care. Take some time and read through the archives. You’ll be glad you did.

Dr. Gov was created and is maintaned by John Sexton. His other blog Verum, has been in steady operation since 2004.
