That damn socialized medicine.
So, yesterday my sister in Montreal was having severe chest pain about 1:30PM.

She called for help, was taken to the hospital, diagnosed, had angioplasty, and in a room by 4:00PM. Out of pocket cost? $0.
Socialized medicine is just terrible, eh? Dodgy

She had two more stents put in today and should be home by Sunday.

I'm glad she's ok.

Hug

But yeah I get the point.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Yeah, frankie and the rest of the libertards can go die filling out insurance forms in the E.R. Censored

That's assuming they can get a privately-operated ambulance to take them there without having to stop at an ATM en route.

The USA is the only civilized country that doesn't take care of their people's health. Here in the Dominican Republic where the average family lives on less than $100.00 USD a week they have it, why not the USA?

I'm glad your sister is doing okay and hope she continues to!

You won't get any arguments from me against socialized medicine. I'm all for it. Unfortunately, I don't think there's any possibility of the US adopting such a sensible system.

Glad to hear she is going to be okay.

I don't see socialized medicine happening here...too many pockets are lined with medical money. It's a business here, not a service for the welfare of the people. Undecided

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Chas, your sister has lied to you. People are dying in Canadian ERs because they can't get in to see a doctor. Then they have to wait weeks for a surgery, and when it finally happens, it is done by an incompetent, underpaid surgeon.

I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but your sister is probably dead. Drinking Beverage

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

You make a grave argument. Consider

They also don't want to take money away from the military budget to pay for it.

More importantly, they don't want to give quality healthcare to people who have been in the military.
