VIDEO: DOCTOR EXPLAINS WHY OBAMACARE WILL BE WORSE THAN CANADIAN SYSTEM

Dr. Lee Kurisko, who has actually practiced medicine in Canada, eloquently describes the disaster that is Canadian health care and debunks the absurd notion that any group of ”experts” (in Canada, the U.S. or anywhere else) can outsmart the market. He caps that point off with a quote from Friedrich Hayek, who called this the “fatal conceit” of central planning: [ht [...]

Sally Pipes, health care policy expert and former Canadian, explains the ugly facts of life under ObamaCare.  It comes down to this: “Access to a waiting list isn’t access to care.” This must see video is from the May 14, 2011 “Doctors Town Hall,” held in Costa Mesa, California: [ht Paul Hsieh]

WHO THE HELL IS JUSTIN BIEBER?

I guess it means I’m officially a geezer, but that’s precisely what I asked when this kid’s name came up the other night as I sat with friends and family guzzling margaritas and eating fajitas. It was a genuine query, but all I got were incredulous looks and laughter. My youngest daughter glanced around the restaurant to make sure no [...]

WHAT DO DICK CHENEY, BILL CLINTON & DANNY WILLIAMS HAVE IN COMMON?

They’re all rich, well-connected politicians with heart trouble, and they all chose to have their bum tickers fixed in the United States. For Clinton and Cheney this is hardly surprising. But Williams is the Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, and got a lot of unflattering coverage because he chose our system over the Canadian system. Yesterday he explained: This is my [...]

CANADA CUTS DEAL WITH U.S. HOSPITALS

Rudy Giuliani once quipped,  ?If we ever got Hillarycare in this country, Canadians will have nowhere to go for health care.? He was, of course, labeled a knuckle-dragger by the “news” media. Well, according to the Detroit Free Press he was on to something: Agreements between Detroit hospitals and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term [...]

NHS: 4,000 BABIES BORN IN LIFTS & RESTROOMS

Progressives are committed to improving the plight of women, right? So, why are they so enthusiastic about emulating government-run health care systems that always seem to shortchange women? Why do they want, for example, to emulate the medical systems of Canada, France and Great Britain when the breast cancer survival rates in those countries are worse than that of the current U.S. health [...]
