Sounds like an Obama dream for all the little people. He will sit on his version of Mount Olympus and stare down on all the vassals.
ObaMugabe thinks Britain’s NHS is the model system!
Yeah it was just genius to take the best medical system in the world and turn it over to self serving politicians
You mean that treacly dance number dedicated to the NHS in the opening ceremony of the London Olympics wasn’t realistic? Imagine that....
Yeah, well... it’s just getting worse.
Norway: I have diabetes, which has grown into a life threat thanks to my state-ordained medic. Now the same medic is refusing to grant disability, but is trying to run some government hatchet man to render a verdict of “dangerous rightwinger”. Three years ago, when I was almost losing a leg to neuropathy, he refused wound treatment at home but was overriden by specialists at the nearest hospital. When I broke a shoulder a year and a half ago, and had a titanium bar put in, he had learned about wound treatment and initiated that. But after the first contact with new nursing staff (Pakis), treatment was terminated.
The war on the west is raging both in the US and Europe, and it’s being waged by “our own”.
This is the real problem with government run healthcare. Because it is owned by the public, it becomes a valid political debating point. Any criticism of the system is always painted by the socialists and unions as an attack on the doctors and (especially) the nurses. Yet the main problem is the armies of bureaucrats that always multiply around government organisations and suck up all the vast resources thrown at the NHS The doctors and nurses are great. The main problem they have is that they are overworked, and if we didnt have as many bureaucrats we could afford more of them and that problem would go away.
See? The problem with government is that it isn't Socialist ENOUGH!
England should follow Chiner's lead!
The deaths are just the tip of the iceberg.
With any government control of health care, there will be massive suffering from those who have to wait for the procedures/operations. In the UK, those wait times have to be unbearable.
3 summers ago, during the first week of June, my meniscus which has suffered injuries since my teen years really started hurting. Our great FP made the diagnosis in minutes re a torn meniscus needing a scoop and clean.
Due to being on Medicare, Medicare’s protocol meant that he had to refer me to a PT. The PT is excellent. However according to protocol, he started me on PT, later he told me he knew that it wouldn’t work like our FP. So after a couple of weeks of increasing pain, I finally got to see a good Ortho Pod.
He confirmed what I had been told by my FP and PT, yet he had to give me a steroid shot to the knee, and put me on the MRI wait list. After a couple of more weeks of pain, he go me in for an MRI exam on a weekend after another patient cancelled it.
In 48 hours, my Ortho Pod had my MRI scan, which confirmed his diagnosis, my FP’s, my PT’s and my wife’s/ the office RN of our FP.
Two weeks later I had the surgery, and two weeks post surgery, I was out of pain and walking the flat land and hills where I live. I was only on pain meds, the evening post op and half dose the next day. I went on a prescription non steroidal for 7 days after that.
Due to the Medicare protocols, I had severe pain from early June until the end of August, when I finally had surgery.
If this happened under Obozo care, I might never have had the MRI and the surgery.
And there, ladies and gentlemen, we have it we have the answer to the question, "Why is 'Huge Nanny State' just another phrase for 'Die People, DIE!!'"? (or is it, "Earth Goddess Gaia sez, 'My planet is already too over-crowded -- buh-bye, Granny!!'"?)
The TV tells me that Obamacare is good for me, and anyone who thinks otherwise is CRAZY, NUTZ, or possibly even an evil Bible-thumping, gun-toting conservative!
