Government Run Socialized Medicine – Only an Idiot Would Support This Disaster and This is Why

What Finger News

By Mac Slavo

NHS (National Health Services) leaders, those in charge of the United Kingdom’s socialized healthcare, have said that hospital wait times have reached record lengths. Waiting times at A&E departments in England last month were at their worst levels since records began, despite pressures from flu and bad weather so far this winter being significantly lower than in 2018.

The figures should be a wake-up call to the government and the socialists in the United States.  Socialized medicine is designed to fail. No amount of additional government will fix it either.  The UK insists that it’s chronic underfunding in social care and a mounting staffing crisis is creating dangerous pressures in hospitals.  Yet spending on health care in the United Kingdom has more than doubled in the past 18 years, after adjusting for inflation. All of that is a problem because of government intervention, and the poor news will only continue to get worse, according to the UK news source, The Independent.

The United Kingdom’s horror stories should dissuade Americans from accepting any form of single-payer.  National Health Service, which celebrated its 70th anniversary on July 5, is imploding rapidly, according to Forbes.

The NHS has struggled to fully staff its hospitals and clinics since its inception in 1948. But today, the shortages are growing worse. 9% of physician posts are vacant making that a disastrous and deadly shortfall of nearly 11,500 doctors.  The NHS is also short 42,000 nurses. In the second quarter alone, nurse vacancies increased by 17%. Meanwhile, in the United States, nearly all states will have a surplus of nurses by 2030. Doctors and nurses simply don’t want to work for the state, which makes their lives far too difficult and their job far too intense for the money.

And it really isn’t that surprising that people don’t want to work as nurses in Great Britain; it’s a stressful job, with long hours and terrible working conditions – all implemented by the authoritarian government control. Some NHS nurses are taking positions at supermarkets because stacking shelves comes with better hours, benefits, and pay, according to a report in the London Economic. Imagine that; a private job is much superior to a government job.

The shortage of providers is what’s causing long wait times. In May of 2018, 4.3 million people in the United Kingdom were on waiting lists for surgery, a 10-year high. And these wait times are killing people. An analysis that covered just half of England’s hospitals found that almost 30,000 patients died in the past year while waiting for treatment. And according to Forbes, it’s only going to get worse. In some cases, the NHS has refused to provide treatment at all. In June of 2018, NHS England said that it would discontinue coverage of 17 procedures, including tonsillectomies and knee arthroscopies for osteoarthritis patients.

If that isn’t bad enough, once a person does actually get treatment, it’s incredibly poor by even a socialist’s standards. Patients in British hospitals are four times more likely to die than in U.S. hospitals, according to an analysis of outcomes from 2,000 similar surgeries conducted by researchers from University College London and Columbia University in New York. Among the more severely ill patients, the disparity was worse; the sickest Brits were seven times more likely to die.

“Medicare for All’s proponents say single-payer delivers high-quality, free care to all. Britons idling on wait lists, unable to secure the care they need, would surely beg to differ.” –Sally Pipes, Forbes contributor

  1. Look up the :Liverpool Care Pathway”…One of the NHS’s plans to help the elderly, and more cost intensive patients to shuffle off these mortal coils, sooner…My Wife’s Coronary Bypass Surgery, scheduled 48 hours after, it was discovered that she needed it…My Wife, a British national, has a large family, still living in the U.K…They all told us, that the minimum wait time for her operation was 8 to 12 months, depending on the area!!!…After reading about the Liverpool Care Pathway, and the exceedingly long wait times, for critically needed operations, and considering that my wife would probably be dead, after that lengthy wait…I don’t want anything to do with a government run single payer medical care system…

  2. The President signed a trick bill, which no one bothered to read. It is amnesty that is now on solid, legal ground & not any emergency declaration that we need to concern ourselves with. The Trump Administration has once again shot itself in the foot, managed to further imperil the nation, if not finally destroy it altogether & this time due to the lack of simple, due diligence. Was it just a rookie mistake, or more treachery, still another betrayal?

    Of course, there still remains a way out, one last chance to save America, but it would involve truly committed leadership willing to take bold & decisive action, but unfortunately, the President doesn’t appear capable of functioning in that manner. He doesn’t seem to understand the nature of the struggle.

    Despite whatever laudable qualities, talents & intentions the President may have, the country continues to slip from our grasp. We are losing. Steve Miller, an Administration hard liner devastated Chris Wallace’s arguments, phony assertions & falsely premised statements on Sunday TV, but neither Miller’s understandings brilliantly delivered, nor the President’s tweets and rallies are sufficient. Tactical maneuvers in & of themselves while necessary, are insufficient. If the President truly intends to save America, he would do that, which must be done with incisive tenacity & determination.

    America’s survival, as an independent, sovereign & culturally whole entity is the issue. Should the President prove unable to protect the nation’s territorial integrity, the entire effort becomes just some vanity, retirement project.

    America’s struggle is existential, to be, or not to be. Make no mistake. The globalist plan consists of a giant redistribution of middle class assets. That’s our country & our assets, our jobs, wealth, our standard of living & all of our values & belief
    systems that these globalists want to redistribute. If I can tell you what to do to stop it, then the real question becomes, why can’t the President?
