The Dire Consequences of Centralized Health Care

by Wesley J. Smith

Obamacare is taking us toward the disaster that has become the U.K.’s NHS. No, it isn’t a directly socialized system. Yet. But it is a centrally controlled system with the ultimate goal of failing into single payer.

And that will be a disaster that makes the current train wreck the “good old days.” The current mess in the Wales version of the NHS illustrates the point. From the BBC report:

The number of patients waiting more than nine months for hospital treatment in Wales has more than doubled in six months, figures show. The number of patients waiting jumped from 5,414 to 11,672, in the six months since March this year.

I can hardly wait for us to reach health-care gridlock. How about you?
