Replace with Obamacare for a view of our future healthcare system

The future of Obamacare, which should have been repealed in toto had it not been for Obama’s veto in January of this year, and which now obviously after such abysmal failures and fiscal disasters shows clearly that it was intended from the start to destroy healthcare as we know it in the US so the left could force a single-payer system on us, will end up looking like this:

The UK has one of the worst healthcare systems in the developed world according to a damning new report which said the nation has an “outstandingly poor” record of preventing ill health.

Hospitals are now so short-staffed and underequipped that people are also dying needlessly because of a chronic lack of investment. The verdict, from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), will make embarrassing reading for David Cameron who denied the cash-strapped NHS is heading for its worst winter crisis.

Staff are too rushed to improve levels of care that have in many areas fallen below countries such as Turkey, Portugal and Poland. Almost 75,000 more doctors and nurses are needed to match standards in similar countries the OECD said in its annual Health at a Glance study comparing the quality of healthcare across 34 countries.

While access to care is “generally good” the quality of care in the UK is “poor to mediocre” across several key health areas, obesity levels are “dire” and the NHS struggles to get even the “basics” right, the report said citing a lack of investment over the last six years.

Britain was placed on a par with Chile and Poland as countries still lagging behind the best performers in survival following diagnosis for different types of cancer. The UK came 21st out of 23 countries on cervical cancer survival, 20th out of 23 countries on breast and bowel cancer survival and 19th out of 31 countries on stroke.

Here is the takeaway from this obvious revelation of fact: in a system that measures success of a given healthcare system with metrics that are heavily skewed/biased to favor collectivist bullshit over actual performance, the British healthcare system, which is a collectivist government controlled healthcare’s dream state, fails abysmally. It always comes down to the fact that there are limited resources and cash, and too many people that want free shit. When government takes over allocation of the limited resources, it always goes bad. Fucking always. In places where abundance masks the fact that there is an economic reality it might take longer to show that, but eventually it will be shown, as is the case here.

Things are going to go from bad to worse in this country because of the direction forced on us. Obama, was our Lenin. If Hillary wins, she will be our Stalin, and she is gonna do it with gusto. The problem is that whatever it may be we are fucked with these people.

    Hey guys,

    I’m unfamiliar with the site, as it’s been years since I’ve been back here. Not sure where to post this but I feel the need to acknowledge the fact that Lee’s birthday was today (May 2, 1970). He would’ve been 46 today. I’m sure many of you were close to him since he founded this website over a decade ago, so you probably know how sentimental he was. I think he’d come unglued to see that no one recognized this day as HIS FUCKING DAY. Anyway, here’s to the best man I ever knew.

    we already have it here, its called the VA medical system.  I tried to read the article, did it by any chance tell the ratio of chiefs to indians? lot of chief few indians.

     

    to sort of quote Dr Jerry Pournelle, his Iron Law of Bureaucracy applies here, paraphrasing a little, ‘once a bureaucracy is created it will do what ever it takes to keep it going even to the determinate’ of what it was supposed to do.

    RonK,

    I recommend you read this on the effect of more government on anything. And you are right, the debacle at the VA is what Obamacare will be here as well. There is a reason I buy private insurance and avoid the VA like the plague.
