The cost of healthcare will rise in America after its cash-strapped government announced Wednesday that yearly medical exams, vaccines, and senior care will be slashed from monthly government healthcare payments.
America’s official news service said that effective Saturday, “preventative healthcare” will join a list of services cut from the coverage program that Americans have come to rely on for a small but steady supply of basic healthcare.
Americans pay next to nothing for rationed healthcare. They’ll soon have to fork out small fortunes according to the news service.
The list of services available with the subsidized healthcare has shrunk in recent months as the government trimmed services deemed nonessential. Yearly medical exams, vaccines, and senior care have been cut. Abortion, sex change operations, lobotomies, and other services remain.

The cost of cleanliness will rise in Cuba after its cash-strapped Communist government announced Wednesday that soap, toothpaste and detergent will be slashed from monthly ration books.
Cuba’s official Gazette said that effective Saturday, “personal cleanliness products” will join a list of products cut from the ration books that islanders have come to rely on for a small but steady supply of basic goods.
Cubans pay about 25 centavos, or about a penny, for a rationed bar of soap. They’ll soon have to fork out four to six pesos, according to the Gazette.
The list of products available with the rationed books has shrunk in recent months as the government trimmed items deemed nonessential. Cigarettes, salt, peas and potatoes have been cut. Sugar, beans, meat, rice, eggs, bread and other items remain.
