Socialized Healthcare

Just one more reason that socialized healthcare sucks. This woman got shuffled around and left undiagnosed for four years, only to then discover she is seriously ill and the Canadian government won't cover the $250,000 surgery she needs. Which means, of course, that she can't even get it in Canada, because if the gov't won't pay, the docs can't provide. She hasn't had a job in years because of the pain, and her son can't aford the cost. Disgusting.

Make no mistake, we will hear about nationalized healthcare again in the United States. But next time, businesses will be pushing it due to the skyrocketing cost of health insurance. It'll be much harder to stop than Clinton's was, but if we don't want our healthcare to degenerate like Canada's, we're going to have to reject a single-payer healthcare system. Monopolies, particularly government enforced ones, ruin price and/or quality in the long run.

Great blog I hope we can work to build a better health care system. Health insurance is a major aspect to many.
