No place to go
For those who think the Obama administration’s drive toward a single-payer health care system – and that is Obamacare’s goal – might be a good thing, consider this:
Each year, Canadians by the thousands seek medical care outside of that country’s single-payer health care system.
So says the Canadian free market Frasier Institute.The think tank says, as the Daily Caller reports, that in 2013, 41,838 Canadians “left their homeland to avoid long wait times and inferior care that plagues their centralized health system.”
The report found the number leaving amounts to nearly 1 percent of medical patients in Canada.
As the disaster that is Obamacare shoves us closer to a single-payer system, we are left to wonder: Where will Americans who want to avoid the long wait times and inferior care that is coming go for care?
