The Funding of the NHS Is a Central Election Issue

The Funding of the NHS Is a Central Election Issue

One of the most important questions raised in the General Election campaign, and one over which the maximum confusion is spread, is over the necessity to fund the NHS. One would think, to hear the complaints coming from the ruling elite, that to assert that health care is a right is to avoid the question of the funding of election promises, that people do not live in a socialised economy, that the onus is on everyone to fend for themselves. So great is this pressure that parties who are demanding an alternative to austerity are either ridiculed that their agenda is uncosted, or it is assumed that heavy progressive taxation is the answer to the funding of social programmes.
