The joys of government health care

Man pulls tooth after years on waiting list | Herald Sun: "A New South Wales man has pulled out his own rotten tooth after waiting years for public dental treatment.

Jeff Miners said he extracted his own molar tooth about four weeks ago, after he had languished on a series of public dental waiting lists since 2001.

Despite having a mouthful of rotten teeth, the 58-year-old from Bega in southern NSW has gone without treatment except for a single filling in 2005."

After Obama and the Democratic Congress bring us government health care, we can all enjoy the pleasures of self-service.
