Not Your Mother’s Medical Coverage

Filed under: Science — lmwalker @ 4:51 pm

Fidel Castro has decided to forego the “universal” medical coverage provided by his regime, preferring to leave such coverage to his people and opting for some high-falutin’ health care instead.

Jose Luis Garcia Sabrido, an intestinal specialist, traveled to the Caribbean island on Thursday aboard an aircraft chartered by the Cuban government, according to Spain’s left-leaning El Periodico de Catalunya newspaper.

The plane carried medical equipment not available in Cuba in case the leader needs further surgery due to his progressively failing health . . .

Ah, it’s good to be the dictator of Cuba.
