Britain's National Health Service shuts down citing third world conditions

Hot AirConsider this another data point that will largely get ignored when Democrats and the media start beating the drum again on “Medicare for All” in the 2018 midterms. The UK’s vaunted single-payer system has collapsed into “third world” conditions, thanks to a lack of resources that has ambulances unable to pick up patients, who would find difficulty in getting an empty bed at a hospital. The order came down this week from on high to cancel as many as 50,000 scheduled surgeries over the next several weeks until the National Health Service can figure out how to climb out of the hole

It seems the UK is about to relearn the lesson about putting all their eggs in one basket. If you happen to be over there, well, too bad for you.
