Socialized Medicine in Britain hitting the rocks?

If we want to see what ObamaCare will be like when it is fully implemented we need look no further than socialized medicine in the United Kingdom.

The sight is not pretty as NHS is cutting basic health services.

NHS is the National Health Service in the United Kingdom. It is the single-payer publicly funded healthcare system commonly referred to as British socialized medicine.

NHS has been in trouble for some time but now it appears to be hitting the rocks.

A report at the link below is titled, Axe falls on NHS services and says NHS bosses have drawn up secret plans for sweeping cuts to services, with restrictions on the most basic treatments for the sick and injured.

ObamaCare will hit the rocks much faster than socialized medicine in the UK because of the huge administrative costs necessary for the many tiers of non-medical government employees that will be required to give professional health care givers permission to treat their patients with what is now seen as basic medical procedures.
