Overlooking the Obvious

In another swing and miss at a government-operated health care system, McBride tries to point to the uncaring quality of the English medical system. In her post, she quotes the story:

A woman aged 108 has been told she must wait 18 months before the HealthService will give her the hearing aid she needs. (DailyMail).

A commenter correctly points out that neither Medicare nor private insurers in this county even cover hearing aids. But what McBride somehow failed to notice in her desperate attack was the first four words of her quote.

The woman is 108 years old!!! How bad can their health system be if they're living to 108? Perhaps McBride should check with her own health care system to see if they cover her selective myopia.
