What about people that are forced to eat high fat, fried food because they are on food stamps and then get diabetes? They shouldn't have to pay for care. Wasn't their fault.
Total bull shit, about Canadian care.
Dental care in Canada is 100% private, exactly the same as in the US.... and I can assure you, there's more than enough rich dentists where I live that you will be seen and taken care of very quickly.
As for the example of the lady who went to WA. State for care..... why didn't they name what her condition was???
As for the multiple births that went to Montana ----- I remember this one --- they didn't say who paid for this hospital stay or the trip....... and I know the parents did not pay ONE PENNY...... can you guess who did. Give me a freaking break.... do you think a multiple birth delivery would be turned away and the couple left on their own.
Natasha Richardson --- very sad story, but I'm sorry, a helicopter would not have saved her life. She fell and bumped her head at a big resort north of Montreal.... she turned down medical care because she though she was fine. An hour later, in her hotel room, she became unresponsive and couldn't be saved.
I am definitely not saying Canadian health care is perfect ..... but what a sensationalistic piece of shit that news story was.
On a related note ........ why are so many Americans (and others from around the world) coming to Canada for eye care and eye surgery???

A very good man "Walter" in my church, a native of Canada, lives in Canada just over 6 months a year but always comes here for his health care. In his words, he has no other choice.
My question is this:
How on earth does John Stossel still have a job with ABC speaking against the messianic Kenyan like this?
The best things in life aren't things!
There are definitely improvements that could be made....... but the news bites and hatchet jobs (like Stossel's) are not true.
For the past 20 yrs. Canada has ranked between #2 and #5 on this UN list. If our health care was so shitty.... how would this be possible???
