Rationing, Suffering and Long Waiting Lines Under Government Health Care?

Hundreds of thousands of elderly people are needlessly suffering in pain while they wait for hip operations because care is being rationed by the National Health Service (the UK’s publicly funded national healthcare system). The waiting list for hip, knee and other orthopedic operations has risen by a quarter over the past eight years to more than half a million in 2016. Meanwhile, there’s no waiting for hip or knee surgery at Surgery Center of Oklahoma — the “free market-loving, price-displaying, state-of-the-art, AAAHC accredited, doctor owned, multi-specialty surgical facility in central OK.”
