Death By Numbers - National Health Service And Obamacare Repeal

As the American Congress makes a dog's dinner out of repealing and replacing Obamacare, the lies and hysteria coming from the Democrats and their bought-and-paid-for mainstream media is reaching fever pitch.

Anyone who pays attention to Democratic Party tactics and those of their socialist bedfellows will have predicted that they would conjure up visions of heartless Republicans willfully visiting death and suffering on the heads of the poor solely to give a tax cut to the rich.

In order to counter the growing cynicism of the long suffering American public who are growing increasingly weary of the MSM hysteria and their lack of evidence in Trump/Russia nonsense, actual figures of the death toll are now being touted.

The death toll started off with thousands of deaths per year and increased to tens of thousands as the skeptical public refused to be enthused. This further increased to 24,000, then 36,000 and currently stands at 43,000.

Wealthy Presidential candidate and Socialist In Name Only (SINO), Bernie Sanders, has increased the rhetoric and hysteria using the 36,000 figure he gleaned from a left leaning website. (See here)

Incidentally, as a measure of his phony attachment to socialism Bernie steadfastly refuses to answer any questions on the disastrous failure of the socialist policies he advocates in Venezuela and more pointedly like all wealthy socialists he refuses to redistribute his own considerable wealth to the poor he champions.

The old saying that things are always bigger and better in America does not apply to healthcare induced death, if one professor’s figures are correct. The British National Health Service is way ahead.

Bernie Sander’s forecast of 36,000 deaths is a drop in the bucket compared to the involuntary slaughter in the NHS. Professor Patrick Pullicino claims that 135,000 elderly people die each year by use of the Liverpool Care Pathway which removes medical support from the elderly to speed their passing. 

This does not include the 30,000 or so elderly people who die of hypothermia each winter because they can’t afford their deliberately inflated heating bills.

The Liverpool Care Pathway started as a compassionate means of relief from suffering agreed with the families which has morphed into a program of euthanasia. (Read the article here)

In event of the professors’ theory being incorrect, the involuntary death toll in the NHS is considerable with 1,200 involuntary deaths in the Mid Staffordshire Hospital Trust alone. (See here)

The American people should be aware  that any government run department or organization, healthcare provision included, always ends with a bloated self-perpetuating bureaucracy stuffed to the gunwales with self-serving career bureaucrats whose only purpose in life is to agitate for ever increasing sums of taxpayer money.

They only need to look as far as their Medicare and Medicaid systems not to mention the failings of the Department of Veterans Affairs. (VA)

It is my humble opinion that Obamacare was implemented as a stepping stone to a single payer system and was designed to fail in order to bring it about.
The fact that Obamacare has been an unmitigated disaster for the American people has been studiously ignored by the charlatans on the left and the MSM.

People need to understand that socialized medicine or a single payer system is the goal of all socialists not because it delivers universal healthcare free at the point of need but for removing the responsibility for their personal health and wellbeing from individuals and families and passing it to the state bureaucrats.

As Ronald Reagan warned back in the 1960’s, if the government controls your healthcare they end up controlling all aspects of your life.

In the case of Obamacare it also gave control over one-sixth of the giant American economy to politicians and government bureaucrats.

Lying of course is now deemed as an acceptable practice in acquisition of political power and there was no bigger exponent than President Obama. One of the biggest lies ever perpetrated by an American President, or any politician for that matter, was the notorious whopper he delivered in support of the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

He knew he was lying through his teeth when he spoke the now infamous words - “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, period. If you like your healthcare plan you can keep your healthcare plan, period.”.

He followed this up with other lies including the falsehood that healthcare cost will decrease by an average of $1,200 for a family of four per year.

In reality, as with other government run programs the opposite was true, premiums and deductibles sky rocketed putting healthcare cover out of reach for millions or it provided cover they couldn’t afford to use.

The American people would be wise to ignore the lies and deceit of self-serving swamp dwellers in Washington DC and accept that Obamacare needs to be repealed in its entirety and replaced with a free market system that leaves individuals and families to decide their own healthcare needs and keeps the dirty hands of politicians as far away as possible.
