    And the Leftists want a similar system here in the USA. Another case of “government knows best.”

    It's 'economic murder': NHS cuts are blamed for 120,000 extra deaths over the past seven years

    120,000 patients died after cuts were made to health and social care budgets

    The majority of them, who were over 60, died in care homes or their own homes

    Experts from Cambridge University likened the recent cuts to 'economic murder'

    And, what are “extra deaths?” Even one is too much!

    In reading this:

    1. It seems to say that 120,000 patients died prematurely due to cuts.
    2. How would someone know if someone wasn't going to die anyway.
    3. Is this one of those Harvard type B.S. studies ?
    4. Extra Deaths ? What does that mean.

    I am just trying to understand what you are saying here.

    My take on things:

    1. No health care system is perfect.
    2. There is a point where continued life is no longer worth the money (sounds harsh I know) or effort.
    3. Everyone is going to die sometime.
    4. How do you rate the NHS vs. the U.S. or anyone else.

    I looked through the article....I'll let you respond before saying more.
