Consider this another data point that will largely get ignored when Democrats and the media start beating the drum again on “Medicare for All” in the 2018 midterms. The UK’s vaunted single-payer system has collapsed into “third world” conditions, thanks to a lack of resources that has ambulances unable to pick up patients, who would find difficulty in getting an empty bed at a hospital. The order came down this week from on high to cancel as many as 50,000 scheduled surgeries over the next several weeks until the National Health Service can figure out how to climb out of the hole (via Guy Benson):

I'm not surprised.

And, major operations are canceled all the time...the day of the operation.

Mammograms, CT scans and MRI's usually have a six week wait. And, that is after the wait to see the specialist to order the scans.

And all they would have to do to know the truth is go to the NHS website, put in a post code and search for doctors, specialists etc.. But they won't do that.

You know there is a problem with your system when every page on your website has instructions for what to do if your surgery is cancelled.

Even when the truth leaves them laying on a gurney in a hallway without any water of food for 14 hours.
