I Watched John Tossel's take on the potential pitfalls of Government Healthcare. This is no "Your grandparents will die" media scare tactic. It was an honest take on what Government run Healthcare will look like.

click on the video "Healthcare: Does Canada Do It Better?" :

I ask all of you nay sayers are you willing to give up medicare. Give up your medicare and then we will talk.

All those things on John Stossel's report happens in America now including their are people who don't even get the treatment in 6 months or 23 hours. My son had to have stitches a gaping hole in his leg that needed 48 stitches. With no other patients in the waiting room he waited 5 hours before he saw a dr. You can always pick out stories pro and con and conglomerate it and tell a story. It is a bias report out looking for the negatives in Canada's system come to America and let's do a story about the negatives of Americas system and the story will be just as disturbing.

" you have to bark or meow" to get a cat scan he says. In America some people have to wait till hell freezes over to get a cat scan. How do you people sleep at night knowing people are suffering, dying, losing their homes because they don't have insurance. Come up with a plan that you can be happy and others can still have some just a portion of what you spoiled people who are so worried about waiting or having to "bark or meow" to have a cat scan.

Again::: over and over and over and over Obama isn't creating a Canadian plan.

A single payer, universal healthcare plan is the end goal. The public option is the first step. So yeah, he's laying the foundation for a 'Canadian plan'. Drink less kool-aid, think more critically.

First you say that Obama isn't creating a single payer plan, then you admit that he is and you want it.

Deception at its finest folks.

Agree, but good luck.
The Democrat party is the party of lawyers and in the interest of self-preservation, they have always shot down such attempts at tort reform.

Since it is a "cat" scan, I don't think barking will do much good. Not for a cat scan. Maybe a dog scan!
