Today In Britain, Your Future Under Obamacare Tomorrow: Dying Of Thirst

Obamacare will destroy the quality of medicine in America by cutting off pricey life-saving treatments, driving doctors out of the medical profession, and by slashing desperately needed funds for support staff in order to save money. When you allow government bureaucrats to make life and death decisions, as they will under Obamacare and as they do in Britain,this is how bad it can get[1].

Doctors are prescribing drinking water for neglected elderly patients to stop them dying of thirst in hospital.

The measure — to remind nurses of the most basic necessity — is revealed in a damning report on pensioner care in NHS wards.

Some trusts are neglecting the elderly on such a fundamental level their wards could face closure orders.

…Dehydration contributes to the death of more than 800 hospital patients every year.

Another 300 die malnourished. The latest report — by the Care Quality Commission — found patients frequently complained they were spoken to in a ‘condescending and dismissive’ manner.

One day, if someone you love dies of thirst in a hospital, maybe it’ll give you a little cold comfort that passing Obamacare helped cement Barack Obama’s “legacy.”
