I've got a friend who accuses me of cherry-picking horror stories about the NHS

in Britain; y'know, the system the Obamacare weenies said was marvelous and we should copy?  Don't think he can accuse me of that on this:
One investigation revealed that a quarter of new mothers were abandoned by their midwives during labour, with some left to give birth on the floor or in corridors.

The second found that mistakes deemed so serious they should never happen are being made in hospitals five times a week.

And the third survey said thousands of patients have all but given up trying to secure appointments with their family doctor.
And you'll just friggin' LOVE this:
Police have even been called in to probe claims that staff at Colchester Hospital fiddled figures to hide the fact that some patients waited up to six months for cancer treatment.
I wonder, how many dead people does that work out to?
And do they give a damn?

This is and allways was about "population control"(reduction) . It never had anything to do with medical treatment. It also maximizes profit by getting rid of expensive cancer treatment, the elderly, sick kids and all the rest of the "rabble". The Queen and Crown prince(the whole royal freak show in fact)have been harping on about "mandatory population reduction" for generations now. ---Ray

Remember, too, that when such a scheme is introduced in the US, it will be run by the US government, which has unique horrors of its own to add to the mix.

It's going create a vast new bureaucracy, creating hundreds of thousands of new GS-13 jobs to be filled by Affirmative Action appointees like Shirley Sherrod. They no longer feel any need to conceal their hatred of Whitey, and they're going to the ones deciding whether you get that organ transplant or whether you get put on the "Liverpool Care Pathway" (a suitably Orwellian term for euthanasia). Does anyone care to wager on whether there are going to be racial quotas for survival times and lifespans? Would anyone like to go double-or-nothing on whether the envirowackos are going to get their fingers into the pie too, using "lifetime carbon footprint" or something of that nature to justify decreeing that a fifty-year-old white male taxpayer isn't worthy to receive cancer surgery, but an AIDS-infected, heroin-addicted twenty-something slum bunny with an IQ of 55 and a violent felony record as long as your arm, is?

This is where we're going. This is the future.
