I am sure one day in the distance past our government was in charge of something that actually went the way it was supposed to. But those days are long gone. Let’s look at some recent and clearly documented examples of government run entities going down the tubes. They are Social Security, Medicad/Medicare, the IRS, The Federal Reserve, Freddy/Fanny, the US Treasury. Now the Federal government wants to take over our Medical system and the student loan industry to help pay for it. Let’s be clear about a few things. The take over passed in the Obama-Nation Abomination Health Care bill does exactly the opposite of improving health care. It does this in a certain very specific ways.
So here is how a socialized health care system works. They control costs in a very specific fashion: The government sets a budget for how much will be spent on healthcare that year, and the system figures out how to spend that much and no more. (1) There is neither argument nor debate this is a fact! That means that the government dictates which Health Care issues is a priority and which ones are not. That sounds like a Death Panel to me when someone or a group of people make choices FOR YOU regarding you getting treatment based on whether they can afford it.
If you have spreading cancer in your body and need immediate treatment, you can not afford to wait while some bureaucrat in Washington D.C. decides whether you are worth saving.
Suffering from brain cancer, Kent Pankow was literally forced to go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. for lifesaving surgery — at a cost to family and friends of $106,000 — after the health-care system in Alberta left him hanging in bureaucratic limbo for 16 crucial days, his tumor meanwhile migrating to an unreachable part of the brain, while it dithered over his case file, ultimately deciding he was not surgery worthy.(2)
Not only did this gentlemen LEAVE Canada for treatment and pay out of his own pocket. The Canadian Death Panels then refused to pay for his cancer medicine he needed to keep the tumors from growing back. How is this better then the US System?
Belinda Stronch, a member of the Canadian Parliament is one of the strongest supporters in Canada of the nation’s government health care program. Yet, according to a May, 5th article by Ed Feulner of CNS News, Belinda was diagnosed with cancer in 2007. Was she cared for by the Government Health Care system that she so strongly supports? No, she came to California and paid out-of-pocket to receive treatment.(3)
Similarly the Canadian government thinks they are too good to use the SAME healthcare system they force their people to use. If this is not an example of hypocritical duplicity I don’t know what is. The US house and Senate refused to include amendments which would force themselves to use the Healthcare system they are now forcing upon US Citizens. If it’s not good enough them why is it good enough for us?
In addition to the failures of the quality of care you could die just waiting to see a primary physician. Canada has a population of 32 million and 3.2 million Canadians (1 out of every 10) are on waiting lists to see even their primary care physicians.(3)
From a health standpoint, the Canadian system's greatest failing is the unconscionable delay citizens must accept to obtain serious medical procedures. From an economic perspective, the costs of the system are extravagantly higher than reported by the government's suspect accounting system.(4)
The alleged "low cost" of Canadian health care is thus no less a fraud than it was in the Soviet Union. Canadians may not pay the price in dollar terms ... but they pay a steep price indeed in terms of care denied or delayed and the poor quality of service provided by unhappy medical practitioners whose incomes do not match their skill and training. (4)
Canadian health insurance is compulsory, monopolistic, and administered by the various provincial governments under strict control of the federal government. It is illegal for a Canadian citizen to carry private insurance coverage for any health care services covered by the government. Physicians are told by the government how much they can charge for their services; drug prices are set by the government. The supply of medical services in Canada is completely rationed, with no significant private alternative. (4)
THIS IS THE FAILED SYSTEM THEY WANT TO BRING TO THE USA!!!!!!!
When will the people wake up and see how the Democrats who are ACTUALLY socialist, communist, fascist have infested Washington D.C. The reality is that YOU and I will not get better health care. All you have to do is look at the British and Canadians who stream over to the USA to get medical care. All you have to do is read about the same who are told we won’t pay for your operations or medications because you’ll be dying soon so why pay for it! All you have to do is look at the law in black and white. It strategically takes away our right to life, and gives it to the government who then can let us die because it’s not within their budget for this fiscal year.
