The next time that some progressive tells you that you have no proof when you point out that there are very few ways government controlled healthcare can reduce costs, none of them good, point out this umpteenth example of healthcare rationing by a government controlled system to them.
Family doctors have been ordered to ration the number of patients they send for life-saving cancer scans to save money. They are being told to slash the number they refer to hospital for tests including ultrasounds, MRIs and CT scans commonly used to spot tumours. Last night experts warned the cost-saving measures increased the risk of patients being diagnosed too late and dying unnecessarily.
If you thought insurance companies where evil, wait unitl Uncle Sam owns it all and tells you you can’t get something you desperately need, something life saving. Not only can’t you complain to anyone about it, it’s not as if the government will police itself effectively, efficiently, or fairly, but you now have no where else to go either, because there will be no competition allowed. Can we say this decision came from a death pannel, or is that still politically incorrect?
