This Is What Government-Run Health Care Looks Like

Those of us who see Obamacare as a distinct step backwards are often branded as alarmist and out of touch. When we point to the regular horrors of government run systems, especially the UK, we’re shouted down with healthy dollops of “it-can’t-happen-here-because-the president-said-it-won’t.”

Read on.

But before you do, look at this photo from London’s MailOnline:

Not pretty.

It’s a photo taken in a UK (government run) hospital of 84-year-old Clara Stokes. The photo was taken by her outraged daughter who discovered that her mom was living a nightmare – starved, dehydrated, and lying in her own feces.

Apparently, the ward was very short-staffed, to the point that Clara’s family members were not only forced helped her, but also other patients who were in similar circumstances.

Here’s a partial list of horrors. If this isn’t clear, cold abuse of a person with a severe medical disability, I don’t know what is:

Maltreatment 1:

Doctors and nurses who misplaced health notes even thought Mrs Stokes was a man for the first two days, after she was admitted on December 16.

Maltreatment 2:

A temporary nurse misread Mrs Stokes’ notes and forced uncrushed tablets down her throat, almost causing her to choke to death.

Maltreatment 3:

She [Clara’s daughter] added: ‘We finally walked in and my daughter said what is that under her arm? We lifted it up and she was covered in her own diarrhoea.

Maltreatment 4:

Helpless and confused after suffering a stroke, the 84-year-old was left dehydrated, hungry and lying in her own faeces in a hospital bed for six hours. . . . ‘She was paralysed and couldn’t call for help. This was after 3pm in the afternoon and the last time she had been checked was at 9am.’

Maltreatment 5:

Just 24 hours later the family found a stricken Mrs Stokes’ foot trapped between bed posts caused by a faulty bed pump. It was not known how long she was trapped and had to be freed by the matron.

The hospital, of course, denies, denies, denies. Here’s part of the snippy statement issued by the hospital spokesperson:

‘We regret that Mrs Stokes’ family have felt the need to complain about her care while she was on ward 17 and ward 15 and the hospital has apologised for any distressing circumstances recognising how upsetting some aspects of personal care can be for relatives.

Stay tuned, because I’ll bet my last dollar that the pro-death crowd will spin the horrible photo above as a case of people dying “without dignity,” and use it as a propaganda tool, captioning Clara’s abuse with: This is not dying with dignity: Support legalized assisted suicide and euthanasia.

If anything, the Daily Mail article referenced reveals that the story of this poor woman who was abandoned to die in her own filth by the government health care system is even worse.

And what the author of this article points out in the last paragraph is exactly right.  The federal government took over a massive chunk of the health care system with Medicare and Medicaid.  They broke it, and then they used the fact that the system was broken (thanks to them) to call for ObamaCare so they could finish the job of socializing the system.  You don’t think that the same people who did that will ultimately point to the fact that the people who are dying in their own filth (thanks to the left) should instead be humanly euthanized?

I think D. James Kennedy put it best when he said:

“Watch out, Grandma and Grandpa!  Because the generation that survived abortion will one day come after you!”

It’s happening.

Sarah Palin desribed her fear of her Down Syndrome son Trig being forced to one day stand before an ObamaCare death panel.  There are 111 death panels under ObamaCare in a byzantine bureaucratic maze that looks like this:

It’s now an obvious and open fact that the death panels are real:

Via Breitbart TV:

Amazing. First [New York Times columnist Paul] Krugman and now Obama’s own OMB Director confirm what Governor Palin has been saying all along: the advisory panel within ObamaCare responsible for rationing health care will effectively be a death panel for those deemed unworthy of the cost of the care. More on Orszag’s vindication of Governor Palin from Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey here  and Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft here.

The Democrats’ have flat-out stated it: “We’re going to let you die.”  And Obama’s own handpicked czars already have a policy (“the Complete Lives System”) to carry that policy out.

The horror that ObamaCare will quickly become will be biblical.  So it takes the Bible to put it into proper perspective:

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools – Romans 1:22

For God’s wrath is being revealed from heaven against all the ungodliness and wickedness of those who in their wickedness suppress the truth – Romans 1:18

You love evil more than good, Falsehood more than speaking what is right. — Psalm 52:3

But he who sins against Me injures himself; all those who hate Me love death — Proverbs 8:36

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! — Isaiah 5:20

You who hate good and love evil, Who tear off their skin from them And their flesh from their bones — Micah 3:2

In their case, the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe to keep them from seeing the light of the glorious gospel of the Messiah, who is the image of God. — 2 Corinthians 4:4

    Using photographs of friendly-looking grannies and footage of small children as propaganda shields for nefarious, dysfunctional, right-wing reactionaries is low but, having read some of what you call a ‘blog’, no lower than I’ve come to expect.

    As is often the case with the American far-right (which is what you are undoubtedly part of), you feel it necessary to label – in typical McCarthyite fashion – liberals and those fighting for justice of every kind as ‘facists’. For your information, the swastika spray-painted on the courtroom wall by the immigrants you so despise was accusatory; they were labelling the legislators who produced the Bill, quite rightly, as odious racists.

    Why don’t you focus on those militia-men who make up a large contingent of ‘Tea Party’ rallies, who – like yourself – refuse to acknowledge that, having won a huge mandate in last year’s election, Barack Obama has a perfectly legitimate mandate to, for example, introduce a very lightweight healthcare system to protect the most vulnerable people in your society? The reason is, to show the (largely) dark side of the ‘Tea Party’ movement doesn’t suit your malign world view.

    But the McCarthyite mud-slinging isn’t the only apparent contradiction in your ‘output’. Indeed, perhaps you’d like to explain how you rationalise your deeply pessimistic perception of the human character, your greed, your nascent racism and your complete lack of altruism with your supposed Christianity? Even my limited knowledge of the Bible tells me that your mean-spirited, cobbled-together, pseudo-religion, based principally on selfishness, is about as far from the teachings of Jesus as it’s possible to get.

    I do not say this lightly, but you sir are a liar, a fraud and, quite possibly, ‘mad-as-a-hatter’ given your absurd claim that America’s overwhelmingly right-wing news providers are the the “most openly partisan and ideological mainstream media in American history”. Still, why let the facts get in the way of baseless assumptions?

    Since you’re so obviously self-assured on all things political, I’d be happy to debate any of the observations touched on in this short response with you. In fact, I’d love nothing more than to give you the education you so obviously require.

    Another dire blog piece from a truly dire blogger. The reality is this, the National Health Service costs less (as a proportion of GDP) than Medicare and, yet, on the whole delivers world class serivces to the millions people who use it. Yes, there are isolated incidents in which mistakes are made (just as in the U.S.A) but, on the whole, the NHS is truly valued by the people of Britain and something we wouldn’t exchange for the patchy system available in North America (and even then, only to those who can afford it).

  3. Michael Eden Says:

    It’s interesting that you talk about using the dead lady as “propaganda.” I say that because Democrats have been ALL OVER such propaganda for YEARS. When the ObamaCare boondoggle was being demagogued through Congress, what did we have? The Democrats trot out a child who made the false charge that his mommy died because we didn’t have ObamaCare. You want to see propaganda? Look into the doll-eyed face of Mercelas Owens.

    And what the kid was saying wasn’t even true. Mom GOT treatment. But if she’d ended up on government-care Medicaid, she would have been on a waiting list a 100,000 people long.

    The tragic story of Clara Stokes is a radically different thing from what people like you pitch: it has the virtue of being TRUE. The state government health care system murdered that woman by neglect, just like what will happen here under ObamaCare.

    So you pointedly demonize yourself and your twisted ideology by your own standard. And thank you for doing it, so people can see what a liar YOU are. You’re all too happy to produce crying victims when it suits your agenda, but suddenly I’m nasty for doing the very thing you people have done day in and day out for years?

    Let me continue demonstrating what a two-faced hypocrite you truly are. You try to excuse the pro-illegal immigration demonstrators’ use of the swastika as “accusatory; they were labeling the legislators who produced the Bill.” Where the hell were you when Nancy Pelosi trotted out and demonized tea party protesters (Pelosi: “I think they’re Astroturf… You be the judge. “They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare.”) who were doing the same thing?

    I’ve got the article with the photos of the tea party people using the swastika to “accuse” and “label” You and your ilk demonized them for doing so. And now it’s suddenly okay, you demagogic hypocrite???

    70% of Arizonans support this law. And fully 60% of Americans support it, according to Rasmussen. But you demonize the majority of America as “racist.” YOU’RE the racist, you racist bigot. You constantly race-bait and play racist politics, just like your messiah Obama, who is calling for the racial politics of division in his own version of the oft-liberal criticized “southern strategy.”

    Oh, it’s FINE to stoop to racially divisive politics, as long as the left does it. They’ve done it the longest and do it the best, after all.

    I found an interesting article on how intimately involved Democrats were in creating the monster that ultimately came to be epitomized in the person of Joseph McCarthy.

    By the way, as bad as Joseph McCarthy was, he didn’t even begin to hold a candle to what your fellow progressives like Woodrow Wilson did. You should read up on history before you try to hold Republicans accountable for what happened 50 years ago. You’d find the worst kind of blatant racism and ugly discrimination, you’d find blatant fascism, you’d find the worst forms of thought control and police-state tactics. Liberal Democrat and progressive Woodrow Wilson created the Committee on Public Information which was true propaganda and speech restriction. Woodrow Wilson created the War Industries Board which literally forced – in true fascist fashion – industries to cooperate with his war agenda. Woodrow Wilson created the Sedition Act that criminalized any kind of free speech that disagreed with the war agenda. Woodrow Wilson created the Espionage Act that turned criticism of government even in one’s own home into a crime. Woodrow Wilson created the American Protective League that was as bad as the KGB ever was at domestic surveillance.

    Nothing that happened under the mad mad reign of McCarthy even remotely begins to compare with what Wilson and his progressives foisted on America.

    Did you know that the Ku Klux Klan was created by Democrats to attack white Republicans and the blacks who would vote Republican? Did you know that the Ku Klux Klan continued to dominate the Democrat Party for years and years and years?

    I seriously doubt that you want to get into an “ancient history” argument with me. Because I – as a proud member of the Party of Lincoln – have a literal trillion-ton can of whoopass to unleash on Democrats and progressives.

    But you’re not going to get the chance. Because I’m going to block you. When slimeballs come to my site and personally attack me, and demonize me, as you did, right off the bat, you are not fit to have a debate.

    If you think the damn NHS system is great, go there and use it.

    I have stories in abundance of people pulling their own teeth out in the UK because your beloved system keeps them from seeing a dentist for years. I have a buttload of articles describing what a massive failure this system truly is.

    Is our health care system more expensive? Yeah, it’s more expensive than the UKs. But that’s because we aren’t doing anywhere NEAR the massive rationing that they do. Or, more correctly, that we will soon be doing.

    You don’t mention the “so we’re going to let you die” quotes, or Obama’s officials who have the “Complete Lives” system which literally mandates abandoning the elderly to die, I noticed.

  5. Michael Eden Says:

    I want to say briefly that I don’t like to block people, but I have to block a LOT of people (mostly for profanity and insane hate).

    I tend to match tones with liberals. They give me attitude, I have plenty of attitude for them. If they are polite and respectful, we can have a debate on the substance of ideas.

    When someone posts a comment that just starts personally attacking, I’m not going to bother with them. They aren’t worth it.
