Britain Plans to Decentralize Health Care

They are hoping to cut out their government bureaucracy and return control to physicians instead of a government agency and cut $30 billion from their budget. Still think UHC works?

  • They told PBO over and over that their system didn't work. They told him it is a drain on the economy and too hard to administer. They told him and he was determined to get exactly what they had. Our only hope is for the Nov. elections to go well, the 2012 elections to go well, and the new members from both elections repeal the damn law.

  • Right Lori, and yet Obama will ignore it completely. Biden and the administration will make excuses. It's there in front of their faces and they won't admit that even Europe has decided their brand of socialist government hasn't worked.
