Time to ban swimming! Its a health risk.

Time to ban swimming in the interests of public health. It costs $500M a year. Because we share the costs, we have a say on whether you should be able to swim.

NHS budget squeeze to blame for longer waiting times, say doctors

== isnt this the magical socialist system of Europe that we want to emulate? Maybe we can fund this as well as the healthcare we do for Native Americans

New NHS performance data reveal that the number of people in England who are being forced to wait more than 18 weeks has risen by 26% in the last year, while the number who had to wait longer than six months has shot up by 43%.

== preview of our future, or did you think you could give health insurance to 30 million people without increasing hte number of doctors or the severity of the doctor shortage and have no change in wait times?

The British Medical Association said the longer waits and fewer treatments were inevitable: "Given the massive financial pressures on the NHS, it was always likely that hospital activity would decrease and waiting times would increase," said a spokesperson.

== massive financial pressures, good thing we don't have those in the USA.

"The capacity of hospitals has been limited by staffing freezes, and commissioners of care are under pressure to ration surgical procedures considered to be of low value. As well as the personal impact on individual patients, there is a potential long-term consequence for NHS hospitals, which are at risk of being financially destabilised as they lose income."

== now the government runs the hospitals in the UK, so there is a difference since here capitalism directs hospital investment in the US... well that is before government decided there could be no more physician owned hospitals under ACA which cancelled in process construction of several hospitals (at least that was what was claimed, they probably actually reorganized ownership and continued but anyway).
