  1. Greece is a drop in the bucket compared to other countries rationalizing their nationalized health care system. Where is the WHO’s report on the impact of Obamacare on the US Health Industry or are they scared he’ll cut off their funding? The once highly esteemed practice of medicine for the average citizen has now been lowered to essentially a commodity practice like auto repair and plumbing.

  2. WHO is the same nitwits that reporters Greeks were injected HIV to get benefits. (which made global headlines). Of course newsnetworks as usual didn’t bother to validate such a ridiculous story (much like they pretend not to notice the Skopians turn into “ancient Macedonians” to hide their embarrassment for recognizing them). Everyone jump at the chance to bash greeks these days.
