Via the ever-awesome xforge here:

Moron teabagger tries to collect "health care horror stories" to use as talking points against health care reform. People obligingly respond with horror stories about how private health insurance screwed them over after taking copious amounts of their money, and more stories about how government-funded medicine saved their lives and limbs at little or no out-of-pocket expense and without having to come back 3 months later or sit in an emergency room for 14 hours. I love this planet.

A sample comment:

"How's this as a true story: Back in the 90s, my then British wife and I were living in Germany (I was serving in the Army). The British NHS system paid to fly her to Liverpool (that's in England, just to save you looking it up) where the doctor of her choice removed her gallbladder using the latest keyhole surgery techniques, she stayed several days in hospital and was then flown back to Germany. The cost? Zero! No deductable, no 10% liability, no co-pay. What a horrible system!"

Lulz.
