Castrocare: He Likes Capitalist Health Care

Nothing exposes the myth of Cuba's vaunted health care system quite like the news that ailing dictator Fidel Castro refuses to use it. Somehow, among all the abundant doctors in Cuba, Castroites couldn't find even one competent enough to care for their ailing leader. Cuban training is no match for that found in the free world.

Instead, Castro prefers medical care from Spain, opting for a free-world Spanish doctor whose accomplishments were developed in an atmosphere of open inquiry and market forces. Ordinary Cubans may get abysmal care, but under the country's two-tier medical system, the communist party elite get whatever they need. And if you are Castro, you can tap services from the capitalist world.
