Great Britain's Health Care System Culls the Herd

I don’t know how many times I’ve had conversations with libtards about the failures of Obamacare only to have the aforementioned morons exclaim, “We should have universal healthcare.”  I become amazed at this illogical conclusion that the federal government can improve upon the disaster it created.

No amount of logic or evidence can persuade these utopians that government healthcare is substandard and deadly.  Even tales from the VA are dismissed as anomalies.  However, maybe a true universal healthcare system such as Great Britain’s might be the cure for this transcendental stupidity.

Obese people will be routinely refused operations across the NHS, health service bosses have warned, after one authority said it would limit procedures on an unprecedented scale.

Hospital leaders in North Yorkshire said that patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above – as well as smokers – will be barred from most surgery for up to a year amid increasingly desperate measures to plug a funding black hole. The restrictions will apply to standard hip and knee operations.

The decision, described by the Royal College of Surgeons as the “most severe the modern NHS has ever seen”, led to warnings that other trusts will soon be forced to follow suit and rationing will become the norm if the current funding crisis continues.

Chris Hopson, the head of NHS Providers, which represents acute care, ambulance and community services, said: “I think we are going to see more and more decisions like this.

“It’s the only way providers are going to be able to balance their books, and in a way you have to applaud their honesty. You can see why they’re doing this – the service is bursting at the seams.”

Some of the fools I know who advocate a single-payer system are smokers and/or fat.  I bet these geniuses don't realize universal healthcare is designed to cull their kind from the herd.
