Gummint Healthcare

Looking forward to Obamacare, it's only natural to see how other countries are implementing socialized healthcare so that we can avoid the pitfalls. This heartwarming story from Sweden.
A man from Nyköping in eastern Sweden has been denied a power wheelchair despite having had both of his legs amputated as the local health authority remained "uncertain if the impairment was permanent".
I'd say that if you chopped his legs off, the situation is permanent, but what do I know? Maybe it's reversable?

Milady observes that the poor guy can't even sue the government. "He doesn't have a leg to stand on."

Ha! She cracks me up.
