From my campaign website: Arizonans deserve top notch health care


I've lived in three other countries in my life. Let me describe my experiences with you when dealing with the health care industry in those countries:

South Korea: I pinched a nerve in my lower back. I took my "alien registration card," my passport and had an ambulance take me to the local private hospital about two miles from my apartment in Suji. I spent three days in the hospital with three squares a day, physical therapy, private room, and a private nurse. Their single-payer health care cost me, in American money, about $15. The post hospital brand name medication prescribed to me cost $3 out of pocket. No health care rationing as Republicans say, no "bringing your own toilet paper" as AM Radio liked to say, no government oversight or approval of anything. I worked solely with my doctor.

China: I got gallstones. Went to the hospital with my wife. My father-in-law drove. This isn't a huge city like Shanghai. This is a fourth tier city: Danyang. Give a shot of Demerol to kill the pain, CAT Scan, private consultation with the doctor, and a prescription of pain killer if the pain should come back. Out of pocket: Less than $100. Jiangsu government paid the rest.

Both times very good 'Traditional Chinese" care...

Once in Chengdu and once in Dali.
