YOU Want Obama's (Canadian-Style) Healthcare For ALL????

Before you ride off on the wild horse of "Change" had better read Neal Boortz today.....


You've probably never heard of a man by the name of Claude Castonguay. He's a Canadian who is also known as "the father of Quebec medicare." Back in the 1960s, Castonguay was the chairman of the Canadian government committee studying health reform, and he's the one that suggested that the province of Quebec adopt a government healthcare system that covers all citizens through taxes.

Fast forward forty years. And guess what Castonguay thinks now ... his system has been a failure. He says that the system is in "crisis ... We thought we could resolve the system's problems by rationing services or injecting massive amounts of new money into it." Clearly that hasn't worked. And Castonguay is now suggesting ... get this ... to give a greater role in healthcare to the private sector so that people will have the freedom of choice. What a concept! And this from the man who created Canada's government healthcare system.

Here we see a crucial difference between Barack Obama (PBUHRA) and John McCain. Obama wants a government solution. McCain favors a free market solution. Castonguay might be worth listening to here.

But all you Barack Obama supporters out there just can't wait until the government gets its hand on your healthcare. Barack Obama is going to solve your healthcare problems! Boy are you in for a rude awakening when you end up in The Bahamas some day for surgery or to deliver a baby."

Check that again folks.....the FOUNDER of Canadian Healthcare BY THE GOVERNMENT sez it FAILED!

Pretty strong stuff!
