    The United States health care system is not nearly as free market and consumer driven as it should be. And while government continues to slowly takeover our health care system, and Obamacare would fast-forward that development, the U.S. system is still more free than the Canadian “single-payer” system. And how is government run health care working for Canada? This past summer the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority considered cutting more than 6,000 surgeries to make up for a $200 million budget shortfall. British Columbia Medical Association president Dr. Brian Brodie called the proposed surgical cuts “a nightmare.” Access problems are not new to Canadian’s single payer system. Since 2003, Timely Medical Alternatives Inc. has helped Canadians “leave the queue” and get timely health care in the United States. Now The Globe and Mail reports:

    The heart and soul of Newfoundland politics is in for repair – and it’s not in his home province or even in Canada, for that matter.

    Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams is scheduled for heart surgery in the United States, a move that throws into question his province’s and his nation’s health-care system.

    A source confirmed to The Globe and Mail late Monday that Mr. Williams has left St. John’s for an undisclosed destination in the U.S. to have heart surgery later in the week.

    We welcome Premier Williams to the United States and sincerely hope he receives the best care that money can buy.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
