Canada: Ruined by Socialism
If you’re one of those gullible drones who believes everything the Republican Party tells you: Make sure you’re sitting down when you read this. Your favorite urban legends are about to go belly up.
“From screaming babies to frail seniors, Canadian-born or recent immigrants, the patients flow continuously through the waiting room of Dr. Kamini Kambli's clinic. Most have made their appointments that day. None will receive a bill.”
But, but — What about all those Canadians who’ve been writhing in agony on the waiting room floor for the last 96 hours? And we all know about that five-year waiting period for a doctor’s appointment. (And that’s for emergency care.) A friend of mine’s roommate has an ex-coworker whose cousin went to Canada, and she said…
Canada’s system is called Medicare. But unlike the American version which only covers people 65 and over, Medicare in Canada covers the entire population.
Dr. Kamini Kambli said: “It’s one of the best systems in the world. Everyone is guaranteed health care and it does not matter if you're rich or poor or what your medical condition is — you will be seen and provided health care. How can you argue with that?”
Nothing’s perfect, and Canadians have their complaints. But right now they’re more pissed off at American insurance barons and their slanderous descriptions of Canadian health care.
Dr. Michael M. Rachlis said:
“We've heard talk in the U.S. that you may die here because of long wait times, you can't choose the doctors or the care you want and that the government makes your health decisions for you, but none of that is really true. I think there's a lot that the U.S. could learn from Canada.”
A recent survey in the U.S. shows that 52% are worried about not being able to afford medical care in the future. And 30% are worried about being driven into bankruptcy by future medical bills.
The insurance industry has spent billions of dollars trying to soothe the public and conjure up fears of a giant collectivist government swallowing up their country. And yet more than half of the population is worried about how they’re going to pay their future medical expenses. So many more people to brainwash, so little time.
FreedomWorks, tell your bots to man their battle stations. Time for a few more of those spontaneous town hall disruptions.
