While you’re considering who to vote for this November for president and Congress, keep in mind the current liberal movement toward “single-payer” healthcare, where “single payer” means the government, which is what Canada has. Want to understand why you probably don’t want a Canadian “free” health-care system? Apart from the confiscatory taxes, there’s the specter that when you’re diagnosed with a potential tumor in your brain, you may be told you have to wait four months for an MRI and another four months for a neurosurgeon’s consult.
That’s what happened to this Ontario man who decided instead to cross the border into the US and pay for his lifesaving treatment out of his own pocket and get it done in four weeks.
Also, keep in mind that the original “Hilarycare” proposal back in the Clinton administration would have made even going to another country and buying medical care with your own money illegal.
So while proponents of socialized health care tout it as a great social justice tool that brings medical care to those without, it’s really just a power grab by liberals and bureaucrats to make everyone suffer from the same terrible health care.
Or as I like to say, “Health care, from the same people who brought you the DMV.”
