Obamacare Repeal

Welcome to single-payer health care.

What to Know: In the United Kingdom, critical eye surgery is now being rationed. And patients are being left blind. “Tens of thousands of elderly people are left struggling to see because of an NHS cost-cutting drive that relies on them dying before they can qualify for cataract surgery, senior doctors say,” the Times reports. “The NHS has ignored instructions to end cataract treatment rationing in defiance of official guidance two years ago, a survey by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists has found. The college said that refusal to fund surgery was ‘insulting’ and called into question the entire system through which the NHS approves treatments. The TPPF Take: Welcome to single-payer health care. “No government-run program is either simple or inexpensive,” says TPPF’s David Balat. “Like other single-payer proposals—including Great Britain’s National Health Service—Medicare-for-All would lead to higher spending with less care, and eventually, it would lead to rationing.”
