Where Will Canadians Go for Health Care After ObamaCare?

fleeingIf not for our own sake, at least for the Canadians’ sake we must repeal this abomination to liberty known as ObamaCare. After all, if we behave like total morons and finish following them down the path of socialism, Canadians will have nowhere to flee to for decent health care.

From the Daily Caller:

A Canadian study released Wednesday found that many provinces in our neighbor to the North have seen patients fleeing the country and opting for medical treatment in the United States.

The nonpartisan Fraser Institute reported that 46,159 Canadians sought medical treatment outside of Canada in 2011, as wait times increased 104 percent — more than double — compared with statistics from 1993.

Specialist physicians surveyed across 12 specialties and 10 provinces reported an average total wait time of 19 weeks between the time a general practitioner refers a patient and the time a specialist provides elective treatment — the longest they have ever recorded.

In 2011, Canadians enrolled in the nation’s government-dominated health service waited long periods of time for an estimated 941,321 procedures. As many as 2.8 percent of Canadians were waiting for treatment at any given time, according to the Institute.

As someone who lived under England’s socialist health care scheme for three years, I can tell you from experience that this kind of pathetic “service” is what ALWAYS results from government health care schemes.

Native American Ira Taken Alive can tell you the same, having experienced government-supplied Indian health care.  I have visited Native American friends in Indian health care facilities, and it ain’t pretty.

May God have mercy upon us if we fail to get rid of this offense against liberty and the U.S. Constitution; we’re going to need a LOT of mercy, if we don’t.

    The Fraser Institute is not non-partisan, and you don’t know what you are talking about. If Romneycare is so bad why have voters not insisted it’s repeal there? Hey, tell us all how you get health insurance? You don’t make anything with this crap web site. I bet you get it from the government. Why don’t you blog about how great Romney is, you can’t. He is a loser, like you are.

      Everything you’ve said proves how little you know. The simple and sad truth is that once you get people on the government tit, most of them quickly get addicted-and when socialists control the government in Massachusetts, RomneyCare isn’t going anywhere.

      But I’ve lived under socialist health care in a foreign country, and know first hand that it blows chunks. The American system is superior in every way.

      And no, I don’t get squat from the government. Even though I’m a veteran and could avail myself of quite a few EARNED benefits, I have used absolutely zero of my veterans benefits.

      One thing you were right about, though: I can’t write about how great Romney is, because he’s a “lite” version of Obama. But when the alternative is seeing Obama get another four years to rip apart America, I’m forced to settle for the lesser of two evils-and if we can get a Republican congress to give him some backbone and direction, we might just get our nation back on the road of freedom again.
