MVNHS© vs Cancer: You win!

If one wishes to see the (near) future of health care here in the US, one need only look Across the Pond to the Much Vaunted National Health Service©:

"Thousands of cancer patients to be denied treatment

Common drugs for breast, bowel, prostate, pancreatic and blood cancer will no longer be funded by the NHS following sweeping cutbacks

Over 5,000 victims "beneficiaries" of that nationalized healthcare scheme will no longer receive the life-saving meds they need, and for which they relied on (apparently worthless) government promises. Round after round of cuts have been imposed as the system becomes increasingly unsustainable.

And why is that?

Well, one reason is the "sudden" influx of folks with no previous (or current, apparently) skin in the game. Another is a long-standing, downward trend in the actual delivery of care.

Something about getting what you pay for....
