In an apparent effort to confirm our worst fears about socialized medicine, Britain’s rationing Czars have decided to stop paying for therapeutic pain injections:

Tens of thousands with chronic back pain will be forced to live in agony after a decision to slash the number of painkilling injections issued by the NHS, doctors have warned. 

And what do these apparatchiks recommend for patients with such pain?

Instead the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is ordering doctors to offer patients remedies like acupuncture and osteopathy.

Meanwhile, the growing number of Americans speaking out against going to such a health care rationing system in the U.S. are being mocked by the “news” media and vilified by the nutroots.

This is good news. When ”progressives” start in with the slander, it usually means they’re afraid. And they should be. The outcry at townhall meetings around the country may be the death knell of Obamacare.

This, by the way, is not unlike what happened in 1993. Hillarycare wasn’t killed by Harry & Louise or the “health care industrial complex.” It died when the public started hearing the details.
