    AOC & Bernie Apparently Worried About UK's NHS

    Why would they urge UK to cherish and protect their national health system? If it's so great then there is nothing to worry about.




    AOC and Bernie Sanders urge UK to ‘cherish and protect’ NHS: ‘It could take generations to regain’

    Essentially what has been going on is that because attempting to outright privatize the NHS and Americanize the health care system would be political suicide as it is beloved in the UK, the Conservatives instead play the long game, paying lip service to the NHS while privatizing it by degrees and underfunding it in order to undermine confidence in the system, thus providing ammo and rhetoric in support of further privatization.

    This is the exact same playbook the Conservatives in Canada attempt to run given half the chance in seeking to dismantle SP there.

    LOL. I swear, you guys are too funny. It's always about what Trump might do or could do and now you're trying to say that Boris might get rid of the NHS. Really? He can't even brexit and you think he's going to be able to get rid of the NHS?

    Underfunding it? You mean because the costs are so staggering you believe that the UK should just write bigger blank checks to keep the system afloat?

    Once we get free health care in America, what are the socialist extremist going to want then?

    Actually the NHS is one of the most cost efficient health care systems in the world among those of comparable quality: https://www.researchgate.net/profile...es-in-2005.png

    The underfunding is a very knowing and deliberate attempt to undermine confidence.

    Likely the same things as first proposed by the conservative think tank, The Heritage Foundation. The first American institution to propose a national healthcare system for the US. A healthy America is a productive and secure America.
