You all know that I don't like to talk politics over here, but Norma - from Collecting My Thoughts - found an interesting article about Health Care that I think everyone should read BEFORE you cast your vote on Tuesday:
The article brings up a few key points including a fact that we, here at The Crossing, are very familiar with: Canada's health care system - how can I say this nicely??? - stinks. We have family in Canada. We have a family member who had to wait 6 months to get an MRI for a shoulder injury. We have another family member who had to wait longer for a CT scan. Here in the US, we get an MRI and or a CT scan the same day as the injury. We HAD family in Canada who died before they could get the testing/diagnosis that would have led to a cure. We found out post-mortem what they had and how easily their death could have been prevented. Do NOT tell me that socialized medicine works. It just doesn't.
Oh, and one more thing... Why do you think people from all over the world - including Canada and England - come to the US for health care? It certainly isn't because it's so awful...
