The British commies nationalized their health care in 1948. At that time their system had 480,000 hospital beds seviced by 350,000 staff. I 2002 their system had 186,000 hospital beds serviced by 882,000 staff. Just recently in 2008 their system had 160,000 beds serviced by 1,368,000 staff. Let us project the future of their system: by 2020 there will be in Great Britain ZERO hospital beds, serviced by 6,000,000 staff - all unionized, of course.

The system should reach temporary equilibrium sometime before that. Eventually the million-plus NHS employees will need healthcare. The system will begin to kill them off. If British laws don't let the remaining workers go private, some of them will leave the country to survive. The country won't be able to replace them without importing workers. But who'd want to emigrate to a crappy country with a collapsing healthcare system? Those who remain will stop the disappearance of beds in order to insure their own survival. The severely reduced NHS that emerges from the implosion may serve only its own employees, but it will stumble along at ever-increasing expense until the rabble revolt and destroy it or leave the country en masse.

you'd be surprised at how many physicians and nurses give each other medical care at little or no cost,calling it "professional courtesy",even keeping it off the record.
Don't think that a National Health Service is going to change that.

Even with a total ban on abortions,medical personnel will be able to get them(labeled as some other procedure),and so will the rich.

I’m not easily grossed out or nauseated. Heck, I’m on email lists for a half-dozen softball teams and you can only imagine the strange/filthy/nasty things that guys send to each other.

But I read a story about the death panels in the United Kingdom that left me discombobulated. I can’t even begin to describe how I feel.

Here’s the intro of a disturbing report in the Daily Mail.

Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’. Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to...
