Capitalism has failed

Last night on the news, in between the police reports it was wall-to-wall education cuts, mass transit cuts, health care cuts, corporate bankruptcies. But the final straw today came in the latest proposed California budget cuts:
Medi-Cal coverage for dialysis and for breast and cervical cancer treatment for those over age 65 would be cut.
Over 65? Sorry, you're a drain on society, we can't afford to keep you alive. Sayonara. In the meantime, perversely, our actual tax dollars, billions of dollars a year, go to support a government which actively prevents people from obtaining medical care and allows even 1-year-old babies to die.

Socialism, anyone?
