    fox news 30 june 09

    MOLLY LINE REPORTING

    1 year for an (mri)

    there is a waiting list to get on the waiting list

    neurologic surgeon - 30 months to see one

    private healthcare is big in canada

    in 09 canada govt. was going to put 6 billion into the system to try to fix it

    a woman with a brain tumer was told she had to wait months to see a doctor --- she paid the mao clinic to look at the tumer - they rushed her into surgery - they told her she would have been dead in 2 months

    end of fox news report ----------------------------------------------------------------

    in this filthy country - we are told what to eat - what kind of light bolbs to use - how much salt restuarants can serve - what kind of liquid we can drink - seat belts - cant smoke anywhere - etc. etc. - IT MAY BE AGAINST THE LAW IN THIS FILTHY COUNTRY TO JOIN A PRIVATE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM - ONLY IN A FREE COUNTRY WOULD YOU BE ALLOWED TO CHOSE A PRIVATE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM - IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT ANYWAY !

    OBAMA CARE WILL PIT - "RICH " AGAINST "POOR" TO SURVIVE

    OBAMA IS CLASS WARFARE !

    WE ARE ALL SOCIALISTS NOW ! WE MUST ALL SUFFER TOGETHER -FOR THE COMMON GOOD !

    "facts"? I guess that term doesn't mean what it once did.

    I once was told I had to wait 1 week to see a urologist for acute kidney stone blockage.
    I had excellent insurance, etc.
    I went to the hospital emergency room and was in a room with a urologist within a few hours.

    I had to wait 3 weeks for an MRI on my back once. I was not even able to walk, etc.
    And the DR would not give me Pain medicine until he saw the MRI results.
    I went to the emergency room that time as well. And had an MRI in 4 hours and was on pain meds.

    btw I would like to see a link for the OP article so I can read the details.
