Comparing Government Run Healthcare (i.e. Obamacare) to the way Healtcare should be

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint?
Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has
a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and
finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

Maybe the solution is veterinary medicine for all...sounds good to me...and besides, was it Will Rogers that once said, "The veterinarian has got to be the best doctor in the world...he can't ask his patients, "Whats wrong?", he's just got to know!"   ~ Storm'n Norm'n
