MVNHS© Puts Seniors in the Crosshairs

How's this for a headline:

"[MVNHS©] 'in peril' if health reforms fail"

Now, one might be forgiven for wondering exactly what kinds of "reforms" British docs might be considering. After all, they don't have to worry about the "Doc Fix,"or being put out of business.

Their issue is that the Much Vaunted National Health Service© pays scant heed to the needs of actual patients, demanding greater "responsibility for commissioning health services." In other words, they're facing exactly the sort of problem about which Bob wrote last month:

"The doctor does not get to decide which services are best for the patient, nor are they allowed to set a price for their time."

Which brings us once again to that eternal question: why would we want to model our health care system on the MVNHS©, as ObamneyCare© obviously does?
