Central Planners Devise New Scheme to Save Money For Failing National Healthcare System, Exclude the Undesirables

The British National Health Service has just announced that it will be banning obese people and smokers from receiving what it deems to be “non-urgent” surgeries.  The decision was made as a bid to cut costs to try to bring relief to an overburdened, unwieldly, state-run system that controls the healthcare choices of all the citizens of Britain, save for those who can pay their way to private service alternatives.

When managing a closed system like nationalized healthcare, the bean counters of that system are left making hard life or death decisions over the people that have become slaves of dependence on the very system that was born with a promise it would deliver to them something that is even less real than a unicorn, something free.

In this case, the less-real-than-unicorn free service is healthcare.  And the British are learning painful lessons about the cost of free healthcare, some people have to die so that other people can get their free healthcare.

The guidelines are ostensibly added to ‘encourage’ personal responsibility by patients, but, in essence, the cuts are aimed at population groups it deems will have little allies to defend them from being cut off from the ‘free’ medical care that everyone else gets (even if that care is less than efficient or timely).

There was no mention in this new guideline about the tax rebates for these two targeted groups, the obese and the smokers, in light of the fact that they were no longer eligible to receive the treatment their taxes are ostensibly paying for them to receive.
