single payer health systems

September 19, 2017

Apparently the Democrats are going to push all out for government controlled health insurance. Healthcare is a right in their view. To the situation in the UK, where this summer it was revealed that millions of people can’t get to a general practitioner in less than a week, with more than 11 percent of patients failing to get an appointment at all, I’m sure the advocates in the United States will point out that we’ll get it right, that in the UK they haven’t really been trying single payer.

It’s going to suck.

on socialism and single payer

September 18, 2017

It’s amusing if tiring to read Leftists defend socialism from its failures in Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, etc., but claiming they’re not actually instances of socialism. We in the United States will get it right.

This summer it was reported inĀ The Telegraph that getting an appointment to see a GP in the UK was getting increasingly difficult. Now it’s being reported that certain joint surgeries are not available to patients who are smokers or are overweight.

In light of the current push by Democrat politicians for single payer in the United States, I fully expect to hear before long that the NHS is not really a single payer system.
