Meet Torron Eeles, 50.
A plumber by trade, Mr. Eeles lives in a country with government run healthcare.
Last December, Mr. Eeles fractured his upper arm. 10 months later, his arm, twisted out of shape, hangs limply by his side, meaning he cannot work for a living and now faces the prospect of losing his home. He has had four operations scheduled – all of them were cancelled. The first was cancelled because of a lack of beds. The second because of a lack of operating time.
10 months with a broken arm. That’s socialized medicine.
