MVNHS©: Cruel and Unusual

When bureauweenies run your "health care" system, this really shouldn't come as a surprise:

"Patients experience “coldness, resentment, indifference" and "even contempt” in some hospitals, the Health Secretary has claimed"

And why not? They're not paying the bills.

And so you get, well, government-run health care:

"[P]atients left to lie in their own excrement in Stafford Hospital, with members of the public taking soiled sheets home to wash ... The man with dementia who was supposed to be monitored every 15 minutes who managed to leave Pontypool Hospital and drown ... residents kicked punched, humiliated, dragged by their hair and forced through cold showers"

And the list goes on...

At the risk of stealing his thunder, Mike's been working on a post detailing a rather interesting and provocative theory of how and why this is the natural result of state-run health care systems (like, for example, the ObamaTax). Suffice it to say, there really is a perfectly good reason why this sort of behavior is becoming "the new normal."

And the fact that the Brits' version of Mme Shecantbeserious is just now lashing out only serves to underscore how putting government agencies between ourselves and health care providers never ends well.
