Socialism always ends in ruin, and makes people suffer along the way.
However, human beings being what they are, such lessons must be learned over and over again, as if we are all nothing more than mindless baboons (I think I just insulted baboons, actually, who probably do learn from their mistakes).
Here is the situation in the UK right now:
The leader of Britain’s family doctors has warned that GP services are “under severe threat of extinction” because they cannot cope with the growing demand for care. Practices are forcing patients to endure long waits for appointments, and allowing them too little time with their GP, according to Dr Maureen Baker, who chairs the Royal College of GPs.
“General practice as we know it is under severe threat of extinction. It is imploding faster than people realise and patients are already bearing the brunt of the problem,” said Baker, who demanded urgent action to reduce “the huge and historic imbalance in funding”. <source>
Yes indeed, say goodbye to your family doctors, chaps!
“This is putting patients at risk and flies in the face of personal promises made by the prime minister. David Cameron is presiding over a serious deterioration in the quality of primary care,” said Burnham.
You think Obamacare is going to do better?
I’ve got a little secret for you: it won’t do better, and in fact it will do WORSE given the legacy of freedom in the USA and the draconian, unwanted shift towards centralized socialized medicine under mr. Obama’s monstrosity.
