I do think that we need to think this through more carefully.
Altho the poster below me did have some good things to say about the healthcare system in canada, the problem is that a VAST majority of people arent going to be taken care of because its not just "stiches and a sore tummy"
Case in point my father who has been fighting for cancer for the last 6 years, if we were on a nationalized sytem he most CERTAINLY would have died, he couldnt have waiting on the treatment that kind of health care provides.
Because of the great healthcare we have here, what could have easily killed him in little time , is now in regression.
What people dont seem to realize is that this is going to cause huge problems, you can tout it all you want, but the numbers against this form of health care speak for themselves. You cant blindly go into something thinking "its for the greater good"
You need to research, read the numbers and understand what is at stake.
Like ive stated before, if it was so effective, we wouldnt have so many people coming here to the United States to receive treatment.
To the poster who was talking about corruption, you are ALWAYS going to have corruption in certain sectors, we just have to deal with it as it comes, and be responsible. If you nationalize something you take the fire out of private practice people and good doctors to do what they do.
I dont agree that people should get paid rediculous amounts of money to do things, but doctors save lives, and i dont want to be treated by a doctor whose paycheck is cut and mandated by the government.
Id much rather get treated by a man who is getting paid really well , and has the motivation to save my life.
GOOD THREAD MAN STAR FOR YOU!
