Being in the UK, I am also a recipient of a socialist, commie-loving, universal health-care system as well...and it's great. Waiting lists for the most trivial procedures are now about a month or so and no-one is turned away at the door - it's illegal and unthinkable. The option of privatisation here isn't really an option but the only question is one of how to deal with finite resources catering for an expanding population.

If this particular battle is lost due to the hacks which pass as Fox News, then that's a far bigger tragedy as any fake-cancer woman not being denied non-emergency treatment in my view.

That's the general feeling I get from you guys, and from Canadians (and Norwegians and Australians and yadda). Amerikay needs to get on the Clue Bus.

See, this is why I put the word "News" in quotes--because it isn't news, it's Newspeak. I don't think the battle will be lost because of Shona Holmes, it's just frustrating to know how many people will believe it, and also believe that Obama is proposing Canadian-style healthcare in the first place. Obama is not trying to be Tommy Douglas, y'know? I mean, look at the trouble he's getting from proposing a public option. Medicare for all would get him, I dunno, flogged or something. *throws up hands*
