Behold, the reality of state-run health care, courtesy of the MVNHS©:
"Retired dentist and wife 'in suicide pact' after being told they have to move into separate care homes"
The couple, married for over 60 years, were seldom apart. Nancie Hughes suffered from dementia, while husband Tom seemed to be in good mental shape. Unfortunately, the gummint, in its infinite wisdom, decided that some 6 decades together was long enough, and was planning to move them into two different facilities.
Now, of course, they're both dead, saving the MVNHS© even more money.
Please tell me about compassionate government-run health care again.
