Axe falls on NHS services
NHS bosses have drawn up secret plans for sweeping cuts to services, with restrictions on the most basic treatments for the sick and injured.

The title of this thread is totally irrelevant to the content of the article posted.

With our aging populations, all over the world, rationing is necessary to bring health care costs under control. Everyone with a brain knows it but too many Americans will not admit it. Unfortunately, the NHS system is nothing like what we in the U.S. will ever see. The baby steps we're taking will affect hardly anyone, and consequently they'll do little to contain health care costs. Great Britain's rationing has nothing to do with Obama.

I thought this legislation was supposed to bring about change, no?

Admittedly Obama had almost no experience with European nations prior to his election, but I seem to recall his administration urging health care reform by trying to shame us with the argument that

Wait...it does.


England has a form of socialized medicine, no?


And they are being forced, or forcing, rationing on the elderly because there is not enough money.


Why would that not happen here? And from what I read in the paper a couple of days ago...Obama IS cutting medicare.
