    Hey there Mad,
    Better warn your relatives in Canada that there are right wing business interests up there that are trying to “privatize” their system.

    I have relatives in Canada and asked them point blank about their medical coverage and I was assured that they are pleased with their coverage and the only thing any patient has to wait for is elective surgery just like we do here in the states.
    Anyone here ever have elective surgery? Well if and when you do you wait until it is scheduled and no elective surgery is treated as an emergency. Plus I am having a devil of a time just getting an appointment when I have the flu, cold or any other appointment. Unless it is an emergency they work you into their appointments here in the states just to see your regular GP.
    The right wing neo-con spinnmeisters have duped the public on this issue one more time along with the other BS they spread. Fear is their tool!

    It may make sense for Rush Limbaugh to be marketing the neo-con plan. He is a very rich man as many believe his lies. He will likely be among the small cartel at the top if they can succeed in returning us to the time of the grapes of wrath. Those who are not extreemly rich will be among those suffering with no Medi-care, no Social Security. Only the rich will have health care but for a few charity hospitals. They will be living under the bananna republic that they are now helping to create. Does Mike believe the neo-cons will give him a free ride?

    In Canada, all people are covered for all medically necessary health care for a per capita cost of less than half of what we spend in the US. The infant mortality and longevity of Canadians are both better than in the US. They have a far lower incidence of nosocomial infections and hospital “accidents” than we do.
    A caller spoke to the patient satisfaction in Canada where patients have their choice of any doctor, clinic or hospital.
    There is NO rationing!

    This guy will not answer a straight question.
    That constitutes a professional lier to me.
    But what do I know. I am sure this guy would tell me that in his talented spin.
    Good Job Mark!
