One of the greatest fallacies about the so called 'Cuban Revolution' has to do with healthcare.(from therealcuba.com)
Foreigners who visit Cuba, are fed the official line from Castro's propaganda machine: "All Cubans are now able to receive excellent healthcare, which is also free." But the truth is very different. Castro has built excellent health facilities for the use of foreigners, who pay with hard currency for those services.
Argentinean soccer star Maradona, for example, has traveled several times to Cuba to receive treatment to combat his drug addiction. But Cubans are not even allowed to visit those facilities. Cubans who require medical attention must go to other hospitals, that lack the most minimum requirements needed to take care of their patients.
In addition, most of these facilities are filthy and patients have to bring their own towels, bed sheets, pillows, or they would have to lay down on dirty bare mattresses stained with blood and other body fluids.
This is not Auschwitz, this is the psychiatric hospital in Castro's Cuba

The partisan-passed ObamaCare Act, enacted over bipartisan opposition, continues to be very unpopular with the public. All the over-hyped self-congratulation amplified dutifully by the Lamestreams hasn't really worked.
The dust is settling, yet per Rasmussen: 55% of voters want repeal; per CBS News: 62% want the GOP to keep fighting O'Care ... and O's job approval remains below 50%.

Today the New York Times had a shocking story: this year the Social Security Trust Fund will pay more out in benefits than it takes in in revenue. There are several reasons this is an important story.
First, it is important because it reminds us that our country is on the edge of a fiscal precipice. The baby boomers will begin retiring next year. Indeed, with the recession some have started to retire early. As the story notes, “payments have risen more than expected during the downturn, because jobs disappeared and people applied for benefits sooner than they had planned.”Congress added to this crisis this week by passing ObamaCare. The left has argued that we can afford this $1 trillion spending program because, with the taxes, it will actually reduce the deficit.
