    Agreed. Thanks to the internet, I have friends around the world and know we would be lucky to have a health care system that cares for us without regard to expense. To not have to make decisions based on what you can afford, with no fear of being bankrupted, is a huge blessing.

    Same gov't that said there were WMD's in Iraq is gonna' provide yer health care.

    Same gov't that supports Al Qaida in Libya and guards opium fields in Afghanistan is gonna' provide yer health care.

    Same gov't that provided weapons to Mexican drug cartels is gonna' provide yer health care.

    Same gov't that's going broke is gonna' provide yer health care.

    They're gonna' take yer money and the only thing yer gonna' get in return is a Death Panel.

    That's not an irrational fear, that's a fact.

    Everyone in Canada IS covered. Whether you get care is different. You may have to wait 3 months for an MRI, but it's covered when you get it.

    I really question whether this article is indeed written by an American. My British friends are shocked that I would take an aspirin for a headache when I could do as they do, go to the doctor and get the aspirin free.

    This is how those on medicaid and other forms of government provided health care feel. When my husband was alive we spent many evenings at the emergency room of our local hospital waiting to be seen while those with headaches, or a sneeze hung out not wanting to pay for aspirin or kleenex.

    See, during the election, it only takes one shiteous post like this for me to hit the ignore button. Unfortunately Squallball cannot be ignored (the why of it is beyond me) so I'll just have to go manual. ;)
