Canada Considers Privatizing Health Care

stupidEven as President Barack Obama seeks to expand government, the Canadians are starting to acknowledge this folly in their own system.

From the Canadian Press:

“We all agree that the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize,” Doing said in an interview with The Canadian Press.

“We know that there must be change,” she said. “We’re all running flat out, we’re all just trying to stay ahead of the immediate day-to-day demands.”


His thoughts on the issue are already clear. Ouellet has been saying since his return that “a health-care revolution has passed us by,” that it’s possible to make wait lists disappear while maintaining universal coverage and “that competition should be welcomed, not feared.”

In other words, Ouellet believes there could be a role for private health-care delivery within the public system.

In other words, while other nations are beginning to face the music that socialism is a dead-end street paved with broken dreams, our leaders continue to push the pedal to the metal and head down this road going nowhere as fast as they can.

In other words, as nations like Sweden and Canada see the need to turn to the free market to fix their mess, we turn to federal bureaucracy to finish the job of burying our free market systems.

It’s amazing how completely asinine many of our leaders can be, isn’t it?
