We have seen the future, and it sucks.

NHS Staff ‘Quitting to Work in Supermarkets Due to Low Pay’

8th May 2017

Read it.

An organisation representing NHS trusts in England said a “significant” number of hospitals had reported lower-paid staff leaving to work outside the health service.

NHS Providers said a pay cap for NHS staff, that limits pay rises to one per cent a year until 2019, should be lifted as patient safety is being put at risk.

The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money. The problem with government-provided health care is that eventually the government realizes that it can’t pay for everybody’s health care without raising taxes sky-high, which it can’t do because then people won’t vote for them any more, so they reduce the amount they’re willing to pay, which leads to shortages and — wait for it — low pay for health-care ‘providers’. Reality can be a real bitch at times.

How about that government-provided health care? Don’t you wish we had a system like that in America? Hold on to your wallet; it’s coming.

    Pick your poison:
    1. Low pay that induces health-care workers to leave health care.
    2. High pay that induces many to enter health care, but prices many people out of the market.

    Of course there’s the third option, known as the AHCA (or Trumpcare): The rich get health care, the poor go to the wall.
    Or as Alen Grayson put it: “1. Don’t get sick. 2. If you do get sick, die quickly.”
