There are days when it seems even fate or God is sending a message to the liberals in DC to just give up on their wrongheaded approach of government run and rationed health care. Just as Al Gore’s global warming Â conferences seem to be regularly plagued by blizzards, the Obamacare major events always seem to come in tandem with horrible breaking news about England’s or Canada’s disastrous government rationed health care programs:
Not a single official has been disciplined over the worst-ever NHS hospital scandal, it emerged last night.
Up to 1,200 people lost their lives needlessly because Mid-Staffordshire NHS Trust put government targets and cost-cutting ahead of patient care.
But none of the doctors, nurses and managers who failed them has suffered any formal sanction.
Former chief executive Martin Yeates, who has since left with a Â£1million pension pot, six months’ salary and a reported Â£400,000 payoff, did not even give evidence to the inquiry which detailed the scale of the scandal yesterday.
Bosses at the Trust – officially an ‘elite’ NHS institution – were condemned for their fixation with cutting waiting times to hit Labour targets and leaving neglected patients to die.
H/T Drudge. No wonder Canadian leaders come to the US for serious medical attention. Folks, make sure you follow this link and read the whole article. Your life and the lives of your family depend on it.
Reminds me of the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac financial disasters, where none of the Democrat legislators or Democrat-crony managers who legalized and then ran up the collection of bad loans in the name of liberal social engineering. They too never paid for the financial devastation they caused as they lined their pockets with the money of American home owners. These people were trusted to be responsible and protect the American People’s trust.
This is the robotic greed of the government bureaucracy. In the name of doing good some people just pillage the public piggy bank – completely blind and immune to any carnage they cause. 1200 people died from neglect under horrible conditions – conditions we don’t even allow for our pets, let alone loved ones. This is the context of today’s already failed health care summit, where President Obama and the Democrats will once more shine a light on their incompetence, tone deafness and crazed compulsive behavior.
The universe is sending a message, people need to listen. We don’t want the UK Health Care disaster in place of what we have now. And don’t pretend to pick on marginal details. This crime against humanity was caused by cost cutting. Just another version of controlling insurance premiums.
