Canada Seeing Rise in Private Health Care

1 Jul

Now this is funny to me because it has been stated so many people want universal healthcare. Now Canada which we are basing our model on is turning more towards private health care because of the mass number of people flooding the system. Here is the article on this new trend in Canada!

Wake-up America. Free is a relative term. We will all be paying for this new system which rationing is inevitable.  People will be paying to go to Canada as they do now in the US. If you have money then you’ll be fine but for the poor and middle class you will be screwed. Long lines to see a doctor, ER and months or even years to get an MRI or surgery. This is crazy and there has to be some other way of making health care cheaper without nationalizing this system.  Take perscription drugs for example, the private market has made it where you can get drugs at Wal-mart, Publix and Kroger for $4 and in some cares free. The Government did not do this. Competition did this? Why can’t doctors and insurance companies work together to lower the cost? The government should not be butting into our affairs. I want to make my own healthcare decisions with my doctor not the Government telling me what procedures I can have and when. Or even if they will pay for medicines or not. My hubby is on a medicine that costs over $700. He can take brand name only per his doctor. I know for a fact the government will only pay for gerneric drugs so if we go to a universal system. We will have to pay $700 a month instead of the $50 we pay now. I don’t know about you but I don’t have that kind of money especially since our taxes are going to skyrocket!

They have broken the percentages down a portion of the people uninsured are illegal immigrants, then you have people who would qualify for medicaid, medicare or lower income insurance that do not take advantage of this. The other portion of people are young adults or people who just don’t see the need for health insurance. This is stupid. If we need to re-educate people on their options so be it but before you go running toward nationalized healthcare you better make darn sure you have looked at every avenue. We cannot even pay for all the things now. Look at California. They are the biggest state with tons of people dependent on Government healthcare, food stamps etc and they are virtually bankrupt. We are headed in the wrong direction!
