Nationalized Healthcare in Britain Forcing Thousands to Go Blind Due to Care Rationing and Cost-Cutting


Thousands of Britons are going blind because their version of Obamacare won’t allow them to have eye surgery.

And that is what Democrats want to happen to Americans, make no mistake.

According to the Straits Times, thousands of elderly people in Britain are refused medical care because the country’s state-run health care system will not allow them to get the needed surgery due to government cost-cutting and rationing.

The government demands that people lose a large percentage of their sight before being allowed to have the surgery, according to the report.

The RCO said its survey has found 62 per cent of eye units retain policies that require people’s vision to have deteriorated below a certain point before surgery is funded.

With more than 400,000 cataract operations carried out each year, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) concluded that there was no justification for policies that denied patients cataract removal surgery until they could barely see.

The rules preventing surgery have been criticized by patients advocates.

Ms Helen Lee of the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) said: “Cataracts can have a dramatic impact on someone’s ability to lead a full and independent life, potentially stopping them from driving and increasing their chance of serious injury by falling. The NICE guidelines make it clear cataract surgery is highly cost effective and should not be rationed. It is nonsensical for clinical commissioning groups to deny patients this crucial treatment.”

Naturally government lackeys are pushing the policies because they feel government needs to control everyone’s lives.

That is exactly why Democrats in the U.S. have been salivating to have nationalized health care in America.

It’s about having control over you. Not about curing you or keeping you healthy.
