Funny seeing former federal Liberal health minister Ujjal Dosanjh disingenuously blabbing on the CBC news on July 21. Why should any American listen to Ujjal's (or pinhead Jack-off Layton's) absurd defenses of Canadian single-payer, state-run monopoly health care? Canada's authoritarian system is no role model to follow, unless you're an Ed Schultz, a Michael Moore, a Dennis Kucinich, or a Mike Dukakis, who ridiculously spouts BS that Canadians are NOT regularly sent to the U.S. for treatment that is unavailable in Canada's sicko health care Utopia! FLICKING DEMOTARDS.
These Yanks should actually understand what happened to Shona Holmes in Ontario's Liberal health care CLUSTERFLICK, before they screw the American people with socialized single-payer pipedreams.
These Yanks should understand what the Chaoulli court challenge in Quebec was all about. It's a hard sell to get many ignorant lefty Yanks to actually read about our experience in Canada with single payer health care.
Ujjal Dosanjh is a useless turd in the story of Canadian health care, except of course, as being another apologist in a long line of state-run health monopolists.
FLICK Dosanjh and the horse he rode in on.
The U.S. health system has time and again been an actual lifesaver for Canadians who could not obtain promised, needed medical care in Canada. Let's not pretend that this doesn't regularly happen. Let's not pretend that the U.S. system is perfect; but by the same token, neither is Canada's - we often rely on the American system! The Americans can raise the bar for themselves by NOT emulating Canada in any way; and by ignoring Canada's single-payer system as if it were the plague. Learn from our mistakes in Canada; or from your mistakes in Hawaii!
