Daniel Hannan Speaks To America And Virginia: A Voice Of Reason On Health Care . . . From Europe!


March 19, 2010

Almost a year to the day that he came to our attention by dressing down his own prime minister at a meeting of the European Parliament, and became an instant international conservative sensation and hero (see video), EU Parliament Member Daniel Hannan appeared on the syndicated Virginia political radio show Freedom & Prosperity Radio where he explained how government-run health care truly works. His insight does not disappoint and lives up to the dynamite first impression he imparted on an international audience when he stormed on to the world stage last year (and which garnered him interview invites on several national news programs here). It is from the perspective of someone who’s experienced a socialized health care system both as a patient and a policy maker, and he documents the superiority of the free enterprise system.

Hannan may be the leading voice of free-market conservatism in the world, now, and, with interviews like this, will make more friends fast. As for you liberals, and the similar system you are poised to force upon us, he notes that yes, there are death panels in the UK and will be here, too, under ObamaCare.

If you didn’t hear this interview because a station in your area doesn’t carry the show, not to worry. It’s archived online and you can listen to it by clicking below. This edition fo F&P Radio also covers education reform in Virginia and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s early days.

    I lived in the UK for 5 years and Germany for 2. British doctors saved my wife’s life. I’ve had first-hand experience with their system when my wife spent time in intensive care and subsequent hospitalization. I thought their doctors were just as good and their nurses were even better. They were wonderful. It reminded me of our system with one huge difference. I didn’t come home and face weeks and months of medical bills pouring in from an insurance bureaucracy!! It was a refreshing experience and a huge stress reducer compared to our system. Daniel Hannan’s rantings will never convince the Brits or Germans to give up their present HC system. They love the peace of mind of knowing they will be cared for regardless of their financial circumstances.
