We should really be able to laugh at this

I wonder how many American women who support putting the government even more in charge of healthcare would change their minds after reading this:
"A Swedish woman injured in a car accident has had her disability benefits withdrawn after the country’s social insurance agency determined her large bust was to blame for the pain."

"The agency’s decision comes following an assessment from a doctor suggesting that Andersson could return to work if she had breast reduction surgery."

""I had understood authorities to be impartial, but I don’t feel that way any longer. I see this as more of a political judgment than a medical one," she said."

We really need to be rolling back government involvement in healthcare before our own bureaucrats grab the power to make more decisions like this. Thanks to InsureBlog for the heads up.
