Roepke, Wilhelm
Compulsory health insurance itself is seriously ill nearly everywhere ... It is hard to imagine that Great Britain would have set up the National Health Service in its present far-reaching form if people had realized in advance how it would work out ...

1957 - from A Humane Economy
Selick, Karen  
... socialized medicine takes our choices away—both as to how much we wish to spend, and how much we wish to receive.
