The MVNHS© and The Obamatax

Here's a cautionary tale of what happens when you put the government in charge of health care:
"Britain was rocked this week by one of the biggest scandals in the recent history of its health system ... The report, which examined conditions…over a 50-month period ... cites example after example of horrific treatment: patients left unbathed and lying in their own urine and excrement; patients left so thirsty that they drank water from vases; patients denied medication, pain relief and food by callous and overworked staff members"
And the list goes on (and on).

It's all about - what else? - cost control. As regular readers know, the Much Vaunted National Health System© (and its ilk) are simply no better at controlling spiraling health care costs than our own soon-to-be-dismantled system. Which doesn't stop unelected and unaccountable bureauweenies from playing God, of course:
"It’s a textbook case of how structural incentives in government-dominated health care systems can lead to terrible outcomes."
Coming soon to hospitals near you.
