...But the Healthcare is Free

Yet another example of Cuba's inept healthcare system, courtesy of Net For Cuba:

Shortage of doctors results in the closure of five clinics

CIENFUEGOS, Cuba - August 2 (Vicente Pérez Varela, Cubanacán Press / www.cubanet.org) - A shortage of doctors caused mainly by the loan of doctors to Venezuela has resulted in the closure of four of five clinics in a Cienfuegoes district.

Doctors in three clinics in the Junco Sur district were sent to Cuba while the doctor in another was transferred to a military unit.

"They've undressed one saint to dress another," said Olga Alonso, a resident in the district.

The government has assigned nurses to help fill the gap caused by the departure of the doctors.

Priceless. (Pun intended) Everyone blabs on and on about "free healthcare" but Castro is more than willing to pimp out his people by taking away the doctors and sending them to Venezuela so he can continue his unholy alliance with Chavato-ez. Caray muchacho....

Of course...some people actually see this as an example of Cuba exporting humanitarian aid and generousness to other countries

(referring to post in Babalu about comments by NY City councilman Charles Barron).
