Now, under Great Britain's National Health Service, there's good news and bad news about that cataract surgery you need.
The good news is that it's free. The bad news is, you're never going to get it.
The same goes for hip and knee replacements, tonsil removal, varicose vein treatment and children in need of grommets to improve their hearing. In an effort to save the NHS money, all of these treatments are now being rationed.
This is a testimonial to what inevitably happens with government-run health care. No one ever spends other people's money as carefully as they spend their own. And that's what government-run health care is: The belief that, somehow, government can spend other people's money more wisely than they can.
This horrific reality of the British NHS doesn't have to be our future under ObamaCare. With your help we can repeal ObamaCare before is metastasizes into a behemoth like the NHS.
If we can repeal ObamaCare, we can be spared the awful experiences of people like 71-year-old British citizen Anne Ball:
"I have bilateral cataracts and under the original NHS criteria I was entitled to have at least one of mine treated – but then the West Sussex health authorities decided to change the threshold level to save money."
The tragedy here is not just that, because of NHS rationing, Anne will not be able to have her cataracts treated. The bigger tragedy is a system that, before this new rationing, would only permit her to have one cataract treated … eventually.
America has the best health care in the world. We can save it from becoming a system of rationing, wait lists and delayed medical procedures.
We can save it by repealing ObamaCare.
We MUST save it by repealing ObamaCare.
