Wonder what you would find if you frisked President Obama’s socialized health-care agenda?
Answer: It will likely destroy America’s amazing medical technology.
Warner Todd Huston – from Big Government – reports:
In 2008 Patrick Swayze was treated with an advanced medical tool called a “CyberKnife.” It helped add months to his life as he tried to beat the cancer that was consuming him. But, Swayze wasn’t the only American with the good fortune to have this highly advanced medical technology available to him. In fact, there are 100 such machines across the United States. From California, to Minnesota, to Illinois and Washington D.C. Americans currently have the luxury of these wonderful new devices.
Sadly, Britons are not so lucky. There are two CyberKnife machines in the Britain, but they aren’t going to do anyone in the country’s socialist healthcare system any good because despite how successful these machines are British authorities won’t allow them to be used on patients.
Despite that the Mount Vernon cancer hospital in London is part of the National Health Services, despite that they spent £3m to purchase the machine, and quite despite the praise the machines receive in the U.S. and throughout the world, British NHS authorities won’t let NHS doctors use the machine on their patients.
Sadly, these heartless, uncaring socialist healthcare officials are uninterested in helping the estimated 10,000 British patients a year that could benefit from use of the CyberKnife. And why is this? Why, it’s because the treatments are expensive, of course.
You see money is far, far more important to Britain’s socialist healthcare system then patients.
Interesting fact: The United States of America has 100 of the 150 “CyberKnife” machines world-wide, all available for anyone that needs them… At least that was the case, but that might change once Obama-Care is fully implemented in 5 to 10 years.
It is true that Obamacare does not provide for death panels in its legislation. But it doesn’t have to when its price control measures and rationing will eliminate the sort of life saving tools that technology will bring us, technology that Obama-Care will destroy.
Hmm… So who is excited for President Obama’s socialized health-care overhaul? Goodbye medical advancements and innovations! Hello ‘death panels’ and lower standards of living!
