Much Vaunted National Health System© puts the hammer down

Well, it was only a matter of time. After all, we noted exactly 3 months ago that:

"NHS bosses are planning a massive expansion of the controversial rationing that forces smokers and obese patients to wait months in pain before they can have surgery"

That's how government-run health "care" works, after all: limited resources controlled by unaccountable bureaucrats. And if the threat of such rationing isn't enough, well:

"NHS units impose surgery ban on obese and smokers ... including an end to the routine funding of hip and knee operations for patients with osteoarthritis"

Sorry (not sorry), grandma!

It gets squirrely from there, though:

"In one area of England obese patients must wait two years for hip and knee replacements while another area plans to deny surgery for smokers, including heart and brain operations."

Might pay to move, no?

But again, this is what happens when you put the DMV (or IRS) in charge of health care.

Worth noting, again, that this is the explicit end-goal of ObamaCare.

Sleep tight.
