Instant karma’s gonna get you: Former British health director dies after operation canceled four times

by editor on April 3, 2011

Remember when the Democrats said ObamaCare would give all Americans the kind of government-operated healthcare that’s available to the British? That’s exactly what we’re afraid of.

The Daily Mail UK explains what critics of ObamaCare were talking about:

margaret-hutchon

Poor Margaret Hutchon died of a severe case of government healthcare

A former NHS director died after waiting for nine months for an operation – at her own hospital.

Margaret Hutchon, a former mayor, had been waiting since last June for a follow-up stomach operation at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex.

But her appointments to go under the knife were cancelled four times and she barely regained consciousness after finally having surgery.

Her devastated husband, Jim, is now demanding answers from Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust – the organisation where his wife had served as a non-executive member of the board of directors.

He said: ‘I don’t really know why she died. I did not get a reason from the hospital. We all want to know for closure. She got weaker and weaker as she waited and operations were put off.’

To repeat: A former Director of the Great Britain’s National Health Service died when her operation was canceled four times at her own hospital. John Lennon summed up this situation perfectly:

Instant Karma’s gonna get you,
Gonna knock you right on the head,
You better get yourself together,
Pretty soon you’re gonna be dead

This is exactly what’s in store for us if we don’t get rid of Obamacare!

And if that grill doesn’t make you want to stand up and shout for socialized dentistry nothing will! Yeha, like back to the future, we’re going to be European serfs again!

Maybe we can ask the chicoms to spring for some crown jewels for the man child.

Yeah, I’m pretty sure she actually died of complications due to bad breath, and they just didn’t want to report it that way. Cause of death:halitosis.

That was actually kind of mean, but help me I laughed nevertheless. I feel bad… You see the things that you do to people RHG?

PS That thumbs down was not me.

It’s ok, Kimmy. Bullshitting is part of my job, and I’m pretty good at it.

The same government that got you the TSA and their “common sense” approach to security now will bring that “common sense” approach to your healthcare…you’re gonna love it.

This is what is will happen to the health system here. Guess she got what she wanted. Universal Health Care and paid for it in the ultimate manner.

The liberal health care system, based on cost to the tax payer will asses treatment on what the patient can contribute to society.
An elderly patient who can not contribute to the “good of the many” isn’t worth the investment. the same for new Born’s who require costly treatment.(See Baby Joesph)

The liberals will come up with some insidious euphemism to candy coat the harsh truth. Something like “Post birth terminating” or ” assisted end of life treatment”

Honestly I can see the perverted liberals used bodies as raw materials for bio-fuels or some twisted shit like that.

DMV-style health care clinics are already very popular in Canada, they’re just not as pleasant as hanging out at the DMV cuz’ everyone’s sick and babies are crying, but oh well – it’s ‘universal’ yay!

I’m sure a very serious, ponderous, official investigation will be undertaken and when the report comes out (assuming it isn’t lost down a rathole somewhere) the earthshaking conclusion will be something like “Mistakes were made.” Then, the report will be flushed with the rest of the official mumbo-jumbo and claptrap and things will go on as they have. Nothing to see here, move along. When the government runs something, there is no penalty for failure.

The teeth instantly tells me she is English… Yuck. However I DO feel bad that she died, no one deserves to die like that. She was probably in a lot of pain. I feel bad for her husband and I hope that he gets some type of retribution perhaps THIS could help get the gears moving against the idiocy that led to the problem in the first place.

I got to be real about something: She wasn’t a hypocrite. Too bad she is not a hypocrite AND she is dead.
