Brits reject American-style healthcare

British leaders reportedly reject the American ways to healthcare, citing an ineffective and expensive system, reports the Los Angeles Times. Prime Minister David Cameron last week told healthcare workers that Britain would not shift their free healthcare system to an American style one. "If you're worried that we're going to sell off the NHS or create some American-style private system, we will not do that," Cameron said in the article. "In this country we have the most wonderful, precious institution and also precious idea that whenever you're ill ... you can walk into a hospital or a surgery and get treated for free, no questions asked, no cash asked. It is the idea at the heart of the NHS, and it will stay. I will never put that at risk," he said. Article
