BOHICA America, congrats NHS coming to a hospital near you

The only thing the Obamination likes about the UK is their rationed health care. THIS is the system he wants for us: Basically DESTROY private health insurance and then herd every one of the peons into his single payer CRAP system where the government is free to ration.

Here's a partial list of what's coming down the pike for the UK, and eventually the bell will toll for me and thee.

From the Daily Telegraph:

"An investigation by The Sunday Telegraph has uncovered widespread cuts planned across the NHS, many of which have already been agreed by senior health service officials. They include:

* Restrictions on some of the most basic and common operations, including hip and knee replacements, cataract surgery and orthodontic procedures.

* Plans to cut hundreds of thousands of pounds from budgets for the terminally ill, with dying cancer patients to be told to manage their own symptoms if their condition worsens at evenings or weekends.

* The closure of nursing homes for the elderly.

* A reduction in acute hospital beds, including those for the mentally ill, with targets to discourage GPs from sending patients to hospitals and reduce the number of people using accident and emergency departments.

* Tighter rationing of NHS funding for IVF treatment, and for surgery for obesity.

* Thousands of job losses at NHS hospitals, including 500 staff to go at a trust where cancer patients recently suffered delays in diagnosis and treatment because of staff shortages.

* Cost-cutting programmes in paediatric and maternity services, care of the elderly and services that provide respite breaks to long-term carers."

Once again I'd like to thank the 63+ million a$$holes who voted this bastard in. Thank you, you've ****ed up America for generations to come. How's that dope with the chains working for you? I hope it's YOUR family that gets hurt by stuff like this.

The NHS was much improved under our last Labour government. I have received excellent treatment in NHS hospitals over the years with two lenthy stays. These cuts are entirely due to the decisions of our new Tory/Liberal coalition.

I am astonished at your comments on your president who is your elected leader whether or not you voted for him and who I understand is anxious for the poorest of Americans to receive health care.

God forbid you get an NHS! I have both worked for and been a victim...sorry 'patient' of the shoddy nurseless midwifeless NHS and I wouldn't wish what I and some of my dearest have and in fact are going through on anyone.
You would be astonished at the lack of care my friend with breast cancer has had to put up with.
Completely contrasting with the excellent care my friend has just received for her cancer under BUPA. (private)

I would like to think that the new Govt we have will cull the massive managerial clipboard clutchers and anyone with the word Liaison in their job title. The millions saved could give us a few palliative care nurses, midwives and open some psychi beds so I don't have to loose any more friends to suicide.
Ah well...I dream....

Well, Pelerin, as it happens at the moment *I* am a "poor American" HOWEVER I think OBama can take his great dreams for ****ing up Americas health care system FIREVER so everything will be centrally doled out to whomever he thinks is appropriate.

Despite the lies you've been told re: "Poor americns die in the street left and right" -- not so. BY LAW the emergency room will take all comers AND DOES.

Years ago I was temporarily in a low income, part time job situation. I needed an emergency gall bladder operation. And got it the next day. Cost to me? Zero. Zip. Nada. Zilch. BUPKIS.
Every time I have had health insurance available to me (And that is most full time jobs) I've taken advantage and gotten it. For me, a single person, at a cost of @20 bucks of month, with 10 buck co-pay. Very affordable, and we do not have to ration things out. We don't get "oh, we think you're too OLD to get a hip replacement, we don't think you should be allowed to have this drug that might do you good because WE will dole things out."

If you have a Cadillac you don't smash the car in because you have a flat tire.. Things aren't perfect, but Obama can take his "health care" and stick it cross-ways where the moon "don't shine." It's not in the least bit about "health care" it's all about CONTROL.

The "poor" are ALREADY covered via Medicare. This Obama bastard's stated goal is "single payer." I.E. Force out all private health care and herd everyone into the same system where you can threaten people by holding it over their heads that if you don't do X,Y,Z you won't get A,B,C.
I have been scared witless on top of it reading the daily horror stories in NHS hospitals re: simple things like basic sanitation and cleanliness. The one story that stood out in my mind was some critical care unit for children undergoing things like Chemo etc. was without running hot water FOR A MONTH!!!!

God in heaven, that should have been on the nightly news immediately if some bean counter couldn't get something like that fixed right away because he was too lazy to contact the right people.

"Oh well" for something that basic is not acceptable.

The only thing "president" ZERO is znxious for the "poorest of Americans" is he wants a slave class lined up to perpetually vote for his chicago thug goonocracy.

I'm sure there ARE many caring competent people working for the NHS but it seems their hands are often tied by inept bean counter pencil pushers and lack of your old "matron" system which really put the fear of God into some jerk who'd leave a patient in dirt.

Oh, and Pelerin, I still haven't seen the Kenyan's supposed long form birth Certificate from Hawaii. Until he pulls one out, he's not "my president."

For one thing, "my president" would know enough not to bow from the waist and put his covert Muslim backside in the air to kow-tow to some Saudi Potentate.

"My president" would not insult the British people by returning a bust of Churchill given to us by Said people in memory of 9/11 as if it were some knick-knack he was tired of, nor would he give Her Majest an IPod with his own stupid speeches on it, nor give a British PM a DVD movie "gift set" that could have been picked up at the local Walmart for 20 bucks. And he sure as hell would not be trying to shut down NASA to be reduced to having "outreach programs" to the Muslim world, nor would he be taking over car companies and deciding which dealerships should close, and some one please tell me who died and made him PRincess Leia where he has the power to dictate anyone be required to buy a given product or indeed have the power of a "kill switch" on the internet. This freak of nature is a danger to the republic. He hates America, and wants to change it forever. He's not "one of us."

You must remember that such 'predictive' articles in the UK papers are rarely accurate; they're just a fairly unsophisticated way of taking the pulse of public opinion . . . if you want more details, I suggest consulting Sir Humphrey. (Bernard will know, but his explanation is unlikely to be comprehensible !)
