Socialized Medicine Director dies waiting for Operation.
The New American ^ | 04/04/2011 | Selwyn Duke

Posted on 04/04/2011 2:54:54 PM PDT by izzatzo

It’s a bit like a supermarket manager dying of starvation or a bottled-water distributor dying of thirst: In the U.K., a former National Health Service (NHS) director died while waiting for medical care — at her own hospital. The Daily Mail reports:

I wonder how she(her soul, that is)feels now about government run medical care and death panels. "Socialized medicine" will be a disaster for "we, the people." Government will own US, lock, stock, and barrel. There is a reason that the socialists consider the socialization of medical care to be the "capstone" of the arch of socialism.

For those of us eligible for VA care, VA care is a window into the future of government run medical care.

The MSM will never report this. Freepers — send this story to the usual folks...someone with a national audience needs to cover this.

But there are no death panels, and anybody who says there are is a racist!

VA care is better than Bummercare would be, because it still has a robust private system to shore it up. Bummercare will abolish the private system.

Liberalism is insanity. To be honest, she probably feels her life was a worthwhile sacrifice to "the greater good". or some such nonsense. That's how they really think.

Socialized Healthcare is ‘free’ but you just have to wait to get your fair share of treatments. It’s just too bad that disease does not observe those same fair share rules as well. Disease must be further taxed and punished for disobeying government rules for fairness and equality standards. /sarc

If “bummercare” will abolish the private system, how will a “robust private system” be around to back up VA care? Just asking.

Also, in my experiences with VA care, I haven’t seen any evidence of the private system support-where is it? Again, just asking. Other than the potential of being “in extremis” and having to visit the local ER while waiting on VA care, I don’t know where it would be; or, maybe you refer to the VA hospital staffs who are generally VA employees or local medical school staff/students.

That’s true, the whole shebang will go down the toilet. But that’s beside the point. “VA right now” isn’t a picture of Obamacare. It’s a picture of what everybody will wish Obamacare was when (if) Obamacare takes over.

You are correct, in our local conservative group (TEA Party & preparedness) one of the members has a nice, 4,000 SF house in a great neighborhood in my town, it’s probably $1.5MM or so and houses 6 children and their parents.

She has a family member, a self-presecribed “Progressive” who said “No one should live in a house like this, you should not use so much energy” and the Government should own this property, allowing families of the poor to live here, as they have nothing.

The Liberals really think that, they really have such a guilt complex of America’s running water, electricity, food and internet that some truly want to be lower middle class (at best) and allow the Government to run everything they do with the all-knowing bureaucrats calling the shots.

You cannot argue with suicidal maniacs or people who advocate their nation’s genocide.

This would depend on where the VA center is sited. For some random examples, in Chicago, the VA shares physicians with well regarded Loyola. In Nashville (Tennessee), it’s Vanderbilt. In Lexington (Kentucky) it’s the University of Kentucky hospital.

You won’t see this in mainstream media. Pass it along. It needs as much facetime as the guy that just announced his run for pre-sent again.

Then why in the hell do they continue to do it. This is what I don’t understand.

I’m back at the VA since I stopped working and no longer have insurance. I know that if I have another heart attack I probably won’t make it.

You, as a logical Conservative can never understand the pretzel thought process of a Liberal. Just a few cases in point: 1) Libs light candles and protest murderers, rapists and robbers when they are about to be executed but scream just as loud to murder unborn children. 2) They push to regulate all food and howl for the hungry, yet grandstand on obesity. 3) They scream about not allowing prejudice or discrimination, but continue to push Affirmative Action to further their goals, which is legal racism and discrimination.

I cannot understand suicidal Liberal logic, and have elected to keep those ideals and perspectives away from me, including moron relatives who want a free ride.

This is not "liberalism" folks, this is hard line Marxism and it's staring down at you right into your face. It's dangerous to attempt to reason with these people, they will stab you in the back (figuratively or otherwise) at the first chance they get. They don't play by our rules, only their ruthless ones, and they don't care who they hurt (or worse).

It'll take more than arguing or disagreeing with them to change the direction this country is going. The sooner Americans wake up to this fact and stop playing nice, and deal with these people head on, then our kids will have something left to carry on that isn't already ruined.

BTTT

It happened to my parents and grandparents under Stalin. I’m horrified to hear this kind of talk about houses (here and other places). We, as a nation, are so far gone and embracing Communism here, it’s not even remotely funny.

And what's worse if those who do not recognize the true enemy of socialism and Marxism with their tactics, it will be impossible to fight. History repeats itself over and over, don't let it happen here! These two ideologies are not benign, and it sounds like your parents and grandparents are living proof of just how far out of control it can get.
