I hate listening to the tripe thrown around in the American media about the impending devastation of their health care system. It's cynical, elitist crap. While I'll admit that our system in Canada isn't perfect, it isn't leading to mass-extinction either. I've had a couple of operations in the last 10 years, and I came out fine. Socialized/government-funded health care isn't perfect, but it's not a monster either. Privatized health care that bankrupts citizens and pays for private jets and tropical island second homes for executives is.
So, when there's anything I can do to spread the word about the fraudulent tactics the anti-public system lobbyists are using to incite hated and rage, I'll do it with fervour.
