The Government death panel, in the U.K., is refusing non-emergency surgeries for those that are deemed “unhealthy” by said U.K. death panel.
The sad truth about government healthcare (single payer, universal, etc...)
You mean that in capitalism people try to save money and cut corners at the expense of human lives? Wake up, liberals. State administered health care isn't gonna fix it. We need a new economic system.
Lol. If it was a Capitalist healthcare system, the Government wouldn’t be involved. 🙄
Lol. I agree with cowboy.
Thats 3 times now. Stop making me agree with cowboy.
I have worked at a surgery center here in the US for several years. We turned down people who were overweight for non-emergency surgeries. It's too risky. The doctor puts them on a plan to lose weight so they can become eligible for surgery. So, this idea is happening in the US with private providers and insurers.
Any surgery can be risky but what does smoking or being overweight have to do with it?
Obesity and a history of smoking can significantly increase the risk of surgery.
Well that doesn’t really convince me.
"Researchers found obese patients had a significantly higher risk of postoperative complications, such as heart attack, wound infection, nerve injury, and urinary tract infections.
In addition, the study showed morbidly obese patients (patients more than 100 pounds over their ideal weight) were nearly twice as likely to die as a result of complications following noncardiac surgery."
Old people can just take an aspirin, right Barry Soetoro?
We know what the Communists want.
Where are the fucking lying Republicans who own the House, the Senate and the White House right now? Lying cockroaches won’t even talk about the IPAB death panel in hopes that you retards forget about it and you have.
You are off your meds again, aren’t you?
I’m not on any meds.
Do you support this Government death panel?
Well then, you should be.
I don’t know what this death panel has to do with me taking drugs other than you probably having a mental disorder.
Ah, back to the old stale insults.
You’re getting soft, cowboy. Time for those meds.
It’s not an insult if it’s true.
You are correct and I am not insulted. I am amused.
Simple minds are easily amused...
Just be sure to wear your helmet and you should be fine.
Unless you can prove that you are not mentally retarded and answer my question about supporting the death panel and their decisions to let people die to save money.
Still with the grade-school playground “mentally retarded” theme.
Have fun with your lolly, little one.🍭
Smokers and fat people should be shunned.
Just like dirty sluts, animal killing meat eaters and old people.
That’s scary. What criteria would they use to decide who is healthy - age, weight, lifestyle, mental ability, handicaps, family history of disease.
Absolutely frightening. The baby killers want you to believe they care about health.
Real scary info.
Save money, get government out of healthcare.
Single payer...Turning your Healthcare over to the government, will be the biggest disaster the American taxpayer could ever do to their family.
Who lives, who dies!
The government will exempt themselves!
Also, how in the hell are you not following me!? 😂
If you are interested, read the whole thing.

If you need surgery for something....unless it’s plastic, aren’t you kind of unhealthy to begin with?
Depends on what the Government says is unhealthy for you.
Do you eat meat?
No preventative healthcare for you.
Here, RT. This article clarifies the issue that cowboy is misrepresenting.
The death panel is already clear enough.
That's horrible! Do you have a link?
And this is what we want for our country? SMH
Thanks for the share!
not that I agree with that they're doing... but of these are non emergency surgeries... who are they killing?
