How Socialized Medicine Creates Dependence

•, by David R. Henderson

In the United Kingdom, the National Health Service is looking to eliminate or reduce several different surgeries to cut costs and reduce "unnecessary or risky procedures." The treatments NHS officials want to cut include tonsil removal and procedures for carpal tunnel syndrome, hemorrhoids, and varicose veins.

In the comments various people talked about how bad that is because people won't be able to get those procedures if the government authority deems them to be ineligible.

That would be horrible if the National Health Service (NHS) deemed them ineligible and then went further to prevent the person from getting the procedures even if the patient paid his/her expenses out of pocket.
