Another American blowhard

Quote:
Just who is this jerk, Rick Scott of propaganda-mongering Conservatives for Patients’ Rights? He and his group are fabricating negatives about Canada’s health care system and I resent this. I am an American who has lived in Canada for more than 35 years. I can vouch that the system is more than adequate and is not run by civil servants but by doctors who are able to treat everyone, rich or poor.
Mr. Scott, and other conservatives (code for rich) are against universal health care without any justification whatsoever. Their criticisms are inaccurate and should not be broadcast.
Where are the ethics in network broadcasting? I saw one of Scott’s ads on CNN recently and wondered why the same curation of content was not imposed on CNN advertising messages as is upheld editorially. If CNN is unwilling to vet content, then where is the FCC?

I believe all in all the health care is good in Canada unless you have a serious illness. Then the waiting list may out live you.

Canada's lack of special care empowers brokers - Washington Times

The trouble starts when patients need treatment that isn't so routine. That's where Mr. Baker comes in. A British Columbia medical broker, he takes patients who find themselves on long waiting lists for procedures such as MRIs and surgeries, and connects them with specialists who can handle their cases immediately.

Spend some time at Ohio State University James Cancer Center like I have in the last two months and you will find many, many Canadians in the Center.

They came here because of the waiting list in Canada and most of them do not have time to wait.

The ICU unit has been filled with Canadians in the last 2 months and none of them are happy with the HC in Canada.

As one woman stated, if we did not come here he would have died without any treatment.

The Moonies founded, own, and control the Washington Times

Are you a Moonie? Are you being influenced by the Moonies? Did you know that the highly respected Washington Times is a mouthpiece for the Reverend Sun Myung Moon? Well it's True! Here's some quotes about the Washington Times I snagged from the Moonies Website. If anyone doesn't believe me, go to the moonies website and read it for yourself. I'm not making this up. I wish I were!

I could care less, I know James Cancer Center inside and out.

How about dinner at the Wendys on the ground floor or a cookie from the bakery?

How about sleeping in the chairs outside of ICU where you have to take turns and wait for a volunteer to let you go back to see your loved one and that long walk down that hallway.

How about some great Chinese food below the parking garage?

I have sit and watched one family after another come and go, many leaving without their loved one.

With specials visitation hours in ICU all you have to do is talk to other people in the waiting room, drink coffee or read. I prefer to talk to other families who are going through terrible ordeals with their loved ones.

Very serious, many Canadians come here for treatment.

Really? That's news to me. The Times is the liberal news bible. I'll take your word for it.
