The Ugly Truth of Socialized Medicine ~ Courtesy of the New Democratic Party of Canada

As most Americans begin debating whether or not to bring in a government health care insurance program into their country to compliment the government health care regulation program that is causing most of the American system’s problems to begin with, Jack Layton (NDP, Toronto Danforth) has stated his intention to go down to the US to champion a big government system by cherry picking his stump speech material — who knows, he might do some actual good when moderate Democrats do some digging and come to realize just what the NDP is.
For the benefit of any American visitors to this blog though, I highly recommend referring this video on to your congressman or senator. Most Canadians, who are both quick to demonize Americans and have never been inside the four walls of a US hospital, will testify to the fact that the emergency wait times of anywhere from three to twelve hours is just a fact of life up here and that finding a family doctor is just slightly more possible in most areas of Ontario than the Leafs winning another Stanley Cup, but if I may be so bold, you will likely not hear these dark stories from Mr. Layton when he pays your country a visit. Wouldn’t it be something to hear the NDP leader explain away those nuggets though?
