UK's NHS denies breast cancer patient treatment

Here's a great story about why ObamaCare must be repealed:

Remember, America is "the only advanced nation in the world" that doesn't have this sort of thing --
A WOMAN has been denied an operation on the NHS after paying for a private consultation to deal with her severe back pain.

Jenny Whitehead, a breast cancer survivor, paid £250 for an appointment with the orthopaedic surgeon after being told she would have to wait five months to see him on the NHS. He told her he would add her to his NHS waiting list for surgery.

She was barred from the list, however, and sent back to her GP. She must now find at least £10,000 for private surgery, or wait until the autumn for the NHS operation to remove a cyst on her spine.

When I paid £250 to see the specialist privately I had no idea I would be sacrificing my right to surgery on the NHS. I feel victimised, she said.
-- Yet.
So let me get this straight: if a person chooses to go outside the government provided health care system, and pay out of their own pocket for their care, they are denied ever using the public system.   This is the kind of system we've brought to our shores!!!

All you Liberals who tow the line that ObamaCare is a good thing: WAKE UP before it's too late!!!  I have said it before and will say it again: I will work my fingers to the bone, do whatever I have to do to prevent my kids from being subject to socialized medicine, and these kinds of stories scare me more and more!
