At Tammy Bruce’s website (h/t: Dan Riehl via twitter), a long and very worthwhile blog post detailing how unsustainability problems are driving the British NHS to care levels I would consider unacceptable for dogs, let alone humans. In brief:
- Patients are already being treated in broom closets, etc., due to lack of space
- Still the NHS wants to cut hospital beds by as much as 1/3
- Patient neglect is routine at some hospitals, including some top-rated ones
- In the name of cost-cutting, doctors now need to seek approval for pretty basic procedures
But remember, as Nancy Pelosi said, we need government healthcare so ‘artistes’ don’t need to get a job so they can keep their healthcare.
