Canada’s Health Care System

Here’s a link to ABC’s John Stossel on 2020. I like the video.

  1. You know… my feeling is – we tried it one way for many years.

    Didn’t work

    Time to try something else.

  2. That’s a fine way to view it, just as long as you can live with the unintended consequences.

    I honestly don’t think our amount of growth in the health-care system is sustainable. That is, having growth in healthcare (and technological advance in science and industry and health) CAN continue unless the standard deviation increases. If we’d rather give up increasing the mean in care, and want to focus on reducing the standard deviation (even if the average decreases), that’s fine, but let’s not kid ourselves that it’s not going to happen (There’ll be no rationing, there’ll be no waits, there’ll be no reduction in care).

    I just want all sides of the argument to be debated and not just the ones our fearless comrade Obama wants to talk about. 🙂

  3. We still NEED some health care system reforms. The FDA gives OK to drugs, but then has to back track when side effects turn serious. Look up Thalidomide, DES, Seldane (I took it, including when taking erythromyacin, which caused fatal heart problems in some!), and fenfen. Now, the HPV vaccine is under fire for deaths & injuries. The drug makers are profiting, but the public is at risk from loose FDA standards.
