LC Darth Bacon sends:

A cancer patient yesterday condemned health chiefs as immoral for threatening to stop her free NHS care if she buys a drug to help her treatment.

Former nurse Colette Mills was told her health authority would not provide the “wonder drug” Avastin.

It also rejected her offer to pay the £4,000 a month bill for it herself.

Now, we know that you HillaryCare supporters will be screeching about how insurance companies over here won’t automatically pay any sort of medication/treatment that we can come up with either, but that’s not the point. Here’s the REAL kicker:

But the 58-year-old, who is having chemotherapy after breast cancer spread through her body, was shocked to discover if she bought the drug privately then she would be liable to pay the entire bill for all of her care - likely to reach £15,000 a month.

Mrs Mills and her husband Eric were forced to back down because they could not afford this.

Sweet, isn’t it? “Not only will we not pay for your treatment of choice because we, your socialist slavemasters, don’t consider it worthy of our support, we also won’t pay a penny of the REST of your treatment if you dare go out and buy it YOURSELF!”

Their “justification?”

Ministers justify the policy by arguing that a two-tier NHS would be created, with those who could afford additional treatment paying for it while others in equal need having to cope without.

“It’s not fair for you to be able to afford something that others cannot, so if you go ahead and buy it, we’ll just have you executed for anti-social behavior.”

Interesting for a country that takes great pride in abolishing the death penalty, isn’t it? “We won’t execute murderers, child molesters and the like, but we most certainly will issue a death sentence if “anti-social” behavior is the issue. In a heartbeat.”

Just remember that the next time some socialist fuckwit here at home starts growing all misty-eyed about “one payer systems” or whatever the fuck they’re going to come up with next to camouflage the fact that they want to control every little bit of your life, including your health.

Every. Little. Bit.

    Equal outcome that way you know… you both are dead from lack of treatment.

    I am not comfortable with national healthcare, and stories like this are why that is so. I do not hink anyone should be punished for being able to get some treatment on the side-why can’t they just split the cost?

    Government health care…..The nightmares of my son’s cancer treatment come back to haunt me. I was in the Air Force stationed at Pope AFB, NC (which is surrounded by Fort Bragg) when my 8 ½ year old son fell down and started screaming about how his arm hurt. There was already a very large lump there which surprised me. So I make an appointment with the small medical facility on the base. Of course, we don’t see a “real” doctor but a physician’s assistant (PA). She looks at the large lump and thinks that it is water under the skin so she tells us to wrap it in an ace bandage and put heat on it. After a few days of that BS, he spikes a fever and we have to go to the emergency room at Fort Bragg. They just give him an IV and tell us to make an appointment over at the base the next day. We see another PA and she has no clue about what is going on so she tells us to schedule an appointment with a Doctor not a PA. Of course, we have no say on who we see but she somehow managed a real doctor. He gets blood tests and after two more weeks of farting around, he thinks my son may have childhood arthritis. Now, all we really need to see a pediatrician but of course, the system requires that we get a referral to see one on the Fort Bragg. My wife and I were so frustrated. Finally, I said the hell with the rank, I was an E-7, I grabbed by son’s medical records from the Major doctor and took my son over to the pediatric clinic and demanded that he be seen!! I screamed loud enough and they got the idea that I wasn’t going away so we got an appointment for the following morning…which is unheard of in the military. Next morning, a “civilian” pediatrician saw my son’s arm and immediately got him in for an MRI. The next day we were advised that he had some type of cancer and that we had to make a decision. Either take him to Andrews AFB in Virginia and have completely free treatment or take him to Duke University Hospital and have to pay deductibles and travel expenses. Amazingly, the doctor was shaking his head no when talking about Andrews and shaking his head yes when telling us about Duke. The next day he was admitted to Duke.

    Besides the ignorance of the military PA’s and doctors, the real kicker is this….After we returned home from my son’s first chemo therapy session I received a phone call from the AFB Medical Center Commander! Why is a Commander calling me at home? Well, he wanted to express his sorrow over our situation and to tell me that if we decided to get my son’s medicine for his treatment at the AFB Medical Center, that it would break his budget and he didn’t have other monies to use!!!!! I was outraged!!! But, since he was a One Star, I bit my tongue and told him I would get my son’s medicine from the hospital at Fort Bragg so that I wouldn’t break his budget.

    Long story short, there is so much I could say but do not have the time…Just remember, WE as a country do not want government run health care. My son and family were treated so well by the Duke staff and we have NEVER seen the medical competence in any military medical facility compared to Duke.

    Sadly, my son did pass after a year long battle. Rhabdomyosarcoma is a bitch!!!!

    ChefJeff

    I am sorry about your loss Chief, and your story is just an indication of what’s in store for the citizens…

    I live in a country with a socialized healthcare system that is not bad if you’re suffering from a bad cold or a broken leg, but anything else, the waiting list can be long. That being said, we have seen several improvements in quality of care and speed of admission in most of the country. Call us lucky so far…
    But there is still a way to go.

    Best wishes from Canada.

    Here in Arizona if one is on Medicaid (think state Medicare/welfare) and one decides to pay for your own medical care and the State finds out. They sometimes will withdraw that person from the program and tell them they have to pay for their entire medical treatment. Socialist is as socialist does.

    Very sorry to hear about your lose Chief.

    Having been in the mil for 20, I agree that it is a system one would not wish on anyone, at least from the dependents side of the house. But this is exactly the kind of system and level of care one would receive if we went to a nationalized health care system (or what it would become sooner or later). The sad thing here is there are so many in this country who are willing to buy into it.

    I’m sorry Chief. I lost a baby son once. I can only imagine the frustration and rage you felt. To have some power trippin’ dimwit tell one you cannot pay for additional treatment is asinine. Unless you are a socialist. For they specialize in punishing those daring to excel in any fashion, proving their pet theories wrong. No to national health care. If these peckerheads want it so bad…let them set it up for themselves in the government, under the exact same conditions we would endure. You hear that, Mr Edwards? What! No takers? Can’t imagine why…….

    When in actual fact, according to the former head of Britain’s NHS. a three-tiered system is created-

    At the very bottom, taking what’s coming to them while waiting months for an MRI (my late aunt died after waiting 8 weeks for a neurologist after having a stroke) or minor surgery- often in excruciating pain, and while suffering more damage from an untreated condition.

    Then, you have the next group, who by gaming the system, or simply shouting till they’re taken out of the queue, get better and faster service.

    Then, you have those who simply take their money and travel to the US for healthcare.

    It absolutely astonishes me to hear the very same weasels who use the decayed state of the VA and Medicare/Medicaid as a cudgel with which to beat the President, turn around and demand that a huge chunk of our nation’s economy be similarly squandered- because they think they’re getting ‘free’ healthcare.

    Very logical, that. Now apply this equaliser a few more places:

    “Not everyone can afford to own a free-standing house, so they must be forbidden.”
    “Private transportation not being affordable by all, we must…”
    “Not everyone can afford meat, fowl, and/or fish, therefore…”
    and -
    “Some are allergic to perfume, thus…”
    “Pencils can be used to cause serious injuries, so…”

    ChefJeff: I am so sorry to hear about your boy! My dad was stationed at a base in South Dakota during the 60’s. We were always treated for stuff at home (stitches, etc.) ; he wouldn’t let us near a military health care facility. I am sure there are plenty of competent doctors and nurses in the system. However, when the shots are called by bureaucrats, quality naturally suffers.

    teqjack: The two-tier system they are concerned about does not apply to government mucky mucks, I’ll bet. They will still have the means to circumvent the system, while requiring everyone else to use it.
