It is amusing to hear people say that Lady Thatcher would be a Conservative in the USA.
Now US conservatives are against universal health care, where the UK has the NHS, if Lady Thatcher was such a Conservative why did she not move the UK's healthcare to an American type system ?
Or was she afraid her government would be chucked out at the next election ?

If she had done that, she would not have made the next election. Her own party would have thrown her out.
