On Socialized Medicine

Everyone knows Canada's health care is the alleged gold standard of government health care in the world.

Why, just ask Member of Parliament Belinda Stronach. Ms. Stronach is battling breast cancer, and travelled from Toronto to California for a required mastectomy. Unlike the rest of the citizens of Canada, Ms. Stronach paid her own way for the travel, the procedure, and the other expenses.

While this blog does, of course, wish MP Stronach well during her recovery, it is important to note that because she could afford it, she availed herself of the best surgical skills money could buy. And it wasn't in Canada.

So don't come here to defend Universal Health Care or the bastardization of the SCHIP program unless you can defend why a well-paid MP should be able to travel on her dime to the US if the US' health care system is allegedly broken.
