Canadian Healthcare

It is important to look at the actions of those who use Canadian healthcare before getting the chant going about bringing Canadian style healthcare to the United States. What does a high level Canadian politician do when he has heart problems? Goes to the US to get it done and has a less invasive procedure than the one being suggested in his country.

An unapologetic Danny Williams says he was aware his trip to the United States for heart surgery earlier this month would spark outcry, but he concluded his personal health trumped any public fallout over the decision.

In an interview with The Canadian Press, Williams said he went to Miami to have a "minimally invasive" surgery for an ailment first detected nearly a year ago, based on the advice of his doctors.

"This was my heart, my choice and my health,"

Socialized medicine is great, until you need real care.

What do Canadians say about the U.S. considering the adoption of a healthcare system similar to theirs? "Where will we go to get the care we need now?"
