'Free' breast implants while patients starve!

If Britain’s nationalized health care system offers a glimpse of America’s future under Obamacare, bureaucrats who will be forced to decide how limited funds are allocated should be prepared to take flack.

Britain’s National Health Service, the NHS, recently spent £4,800 – about $7,200 – on enormous breast implants for an aspiring model while nearly 1,200 patients starved to death in hospitals over the past four years. Critics say the deaths were caused by neglect due to understaffing.

The NHS provided Josie Cunningham with 36DD implants in January after she told her doctor that being flat-chested was causing emotional distress.

“I could never go on holiday, as I lived in terror of ever being seen in a bikini and could never set foot outside without a padded bra,” explained Cunningham.

The 22-year-old from Leeds said she planned to leave her 5- and 2-year-old children with her parents while she pursued a modeling career.

Critics are outraged over the procedure by the cash-strapped NHS.

“This is a waste of NHS cash, and taxpayers will be stunned that they have been landed with the bill. The NHS is there for people with serious medical needs, not as a means of helping wannabes who fancy a career in modeling,” said Matthew Sinclair, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance.

This is what the death panels here will do. Your life will have a quality of life score assigned to it, and people - not you - will determine whether it’s worth it to do anything for you or not.

I have to wonder how she 'convinced' them that she met the specific criteria that decided her implants were "appropriate" for public funding. Hummmm?

Coming to an America near you soon.

Old woman --- let her die. Hot young chick with small boobs, screw her, and give her her implants.

Bureaucracy at work.

Yuck! They’re too big, and somebody lied. According to the pictures, she did have breasts before the operation.

Some photographer really got creative or screwed up with the lighting on the blonde.
