The natural endpoint of any scam

If you're an American who currently:

has varicose veins, cataracts or a hernia;

suffers from carpal tunnel syndrome;

is overweight and happens to require a joint replacement;

has a gallbladder issue or who simply needs antibiotics or a prostate cancer test;

well then you'd better start to worry right about now as the martinets who run England, the quasi-Socialist Nanny state that provided the model for our country's shiny new, supposedly "cost-saving and treatment-preserving" scheme, has shown us the future of health care in our country by announcing that they're going to be forced to reduce or even impose a "blanket ban" on treatments for the above conditions in a futile effort to save some 28.75 billion U.S. dollars over the next four years from their utterly bankrupt National Health Service budget: 

"Patients could find it harder to get into hospital under plans from the National Institute for health and Clinical Excellence, which advises on drugs and procedures to be funded. 

Chief executive Andrew Dillon said a review of clinical guidelines will be finished by the end of the year, which will include 'evidence of overuse' of treatments to 'see what the prospects (for savings) might be'."

But don't worry - you'll still be able to keep your doctor:  he or she just won't be permitted to treat you for the above-mentioned ailments.  You'll most likely just be given some symptomatic care and told to suck it up until your miserable proletarian life ends.

Rationing is quite obviously the only means of containing the out-of-control costs associated with providing "free" health care to everyone in a country, and that is exactly what is now beginning to happen to the British peasants as their benefits Ponzi scheme starts to collapse around their ears.  We'll be next.

Still feeling good about your Obamacare?
