Canadian Crack Head Smarter Than US Crack Head

Ford said that in Canada, the country “can’t afford” their universal health coverage.

“What you guys are doing down there, I just, I can’t get my head around it because it’s costing a fortune, and I don’t know where you guys are going to find the money, except the taxpayers pockets,” he continued.

“And I think people are taxed to death, and I don’t mind two-tier healthcare; if you want healthcare, you pay for it. I understand that. And we have general healthcare up here, or OHIP we call it, but, you know, it’s gonna cost a fortune for you guys to put in this ObamaCare, and I just don’t see how the people are going to be able to afford it, to tell you the truth.”

Ford added that he personally liked Obama but that he did not “like his politics.”

    This is not comparable. Obama can do it because:

    1. He is the smartest man on Earth.
    2. He can do any job better than its current holder.
    3. He has DHS.

    A year ago, I was saying, “All I want for Christmas is an I love Rob Ford button.” Now I don’t know.

    What exactly does Mr Ford find likable about Skeeter? His past drug usage? His waistline?

    This will also have a large impact on the Canadian system because in the past when they needed real healthcare they crossed the boarder to the good old US of A.

    “This will also have a large impact on the Canadian system because in the past when they needed real healthcare they crossed the boarder to the good old US of A.”

    That’s PARTLY because we have a surplus of MRI machines, and the Canadians have a shortage. Morever most Canadians live within a day’s drive of the USA. (Relatively few live in the Far North.)

    It’s more cost-effective for Canadians who can afford it, to use our MRIs, rather than having the Canadian goobermint build their own, when there’s excess capacity down here.

    That excess capacity is one reason among many, why we have the highest per capita health care cost of any developed country. BTW that high cost is coupled with sub-par outcomes, including overall longevity and infant mortality.

    I’m not philosophically opposed to a national health care system, but the devil is in the details. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear that Obamacare was engineered for failure, by a committee of extraterrestrial aliens.

    We’re too corrupt and too bloody stupid to start from Square 1 on a national health care system. We should have cloned a successful model from another country instead.

      Where?

    • gator69 says:

      The infant mortality claim is another statistical trick. The US is the only country that accurately reports infant deaths, any baby born that shows any sign of life for any length of time is considered a live birth. In some countries, if a baby dies in its first year, it is not counted, and in the EU any baby born before 26 weeks that dies is not counted.

      We had the best health care on the planet, all things considered. And the best and brightest predicted costs would soon be coming down all on their own. Leave it to our government to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

      Only partly true. Canadians have the facilities to provide more timely health care but there is a shortage of funding to run the facilities 24-7. this is why you can get an MRI for your dog tout suite but have to wait if you are of human persuasion. Canadians can’t buy their way to prompt treatment so the solution if you can pay is a short trip to the US.

    How about Finland?

  7. Go Canucks!! says:

    Universal Health Care in Canada has a cost that was partly paid for by reducing our military in the 60s-70s. Our military commitments are approximately 1.3% of our GDP now as opposed to the USA commitment of around 4.4%.
    Consider how much you can subsidize your medical system with a couple of % in GDP.
