and welcome Binks back from vacation.
An all-new “Free Canuckistan” international free speech/anti-Islamist/anti-idiotarian round up has just been posted for your enjoyment and edification.
So, where was Binks anyhow…?
HAVING BEEN IN THE U.S. for a month, it seems most ordinary folk I chatted with assumed that ObamaCare meant “What we have, but cheaper, and still good.”
They were genuinely interested in the stories I had of actual Canadian “free” public health, and surprised about the death by waiting lines, ER parking for hours, and long waits for treatment.
In the U.S., hospitals are for profit. Bad service? No business. There are big hospitals, but also tons of little local clinics and specialist facilities for particular matters. Wait-times in the ER? An hour.
The alleged giant tide of of ‘uninsured’ is partly those who choose to gamble on their health, and spend the money they should invest in proper insurance on other things– only to get caught when the accident or crisis hits.
