NHS funding

Below is a letter I just e-mailed to my MP. I find it disgusting that HM Government spends far more tax money on welfare and healthcare than defence at a time when we’re allegedly under grave threat from terrorism. Yes, I sent it through the leftist 38Degrees, but only for convenience’s sake.

Many believe the NHS needs more funding. Being of a more libertarian persuasion myself, however, I do not believe in additional taxation but of a decrease in wasteful spending instead. So I’m getting in touch to see if you could attend the debate on health and social care on Monday afternoon.

I know this is late notice, but it’s an important opportunity to start working on solutions for NHS and social care funding. Having recently received an overview of how much of my taxes is spent on welfare and healthcare, I would welcome advocacy for more balanced spending priorities. I do not believe it is right to spend disproportionately more on welfare than on defence at a time when the government claims we are under severe threat from terrorism.

I believe the government needs to be much more stringent in clamping down on NHS abuse by non-entitled persons such as tourists or high wealth residents. There also appears to be room for a reduction in coverage for non-essential procedures. NHS spending should be based on sound principles, not political expediency!

On the more Labour flavoured side, 38 Degrees have produced some research laying out 28 different policies that could help get the NHS the money it needs. They can be found here: https://link.38degrees.org.uk/HealthSocialCareFundingPolicy

If you aren’t able to attend the debate, please could you write to the Chancellor about how we can run the NHS more efficiently, or talk to your colleagues about the policies?

Thank you.

Obama Embraces Signing Statements After Knocking Bush for Using Them (Daily Beast)

Obama Embraces Signing Statements After Knocking Bush for Using Them – The Daily Beast.

And here’s just the latest installment of the things I called four years ago. I said those believing Obama was a messiah that they were delusional morons and that they were only shooting themselves in the foot.

As for this year’s charade, I don’t see Romney undoing Obamacare if he does win.

Free Medical Care For Illegals Is Passed On To Paying Citizens (Immigration Watchdog)

Immigration Watchdog » Free Medical Care For Illegals Is Passed On To Paying Citizens

This is seriously going too far… If you can’t prove you’re here legally you never should be receiving medical care. All those uppity invaders should get is euthanasia by means of summary execution. If they’re scared of a gun they should be transported down to the border by cattle car and then marched across the border at gunpoint.

This may sound nasty to us, but to Mexicans this should be ok as that is after all how they treat Guatemalans and other invaders in their boghole of a nation.
