The issue is that one side believes that people will be turned down for that surgery because they won't get as much life out of it as someone else might...which insurance companies do, anyways.God damnit, I can't gather my head to understand why they are still debating giving everyone the right to cardiac surgery..
They want government out of their health insurance, but want to keep Medicare.:lol:
I heard an interesting radio interview a while back from someone in Canada. it went something along the lines of "We've made significant changes to the health care system in Canada, so the long lines you used to hear about have been improved exponentially. If you have something urgent that needs attention, you will get it. If you have something a little more elective, or something like...maybe a bum shoulder, yes. you will wait. Canadians don't really mind waiting...as long as they know that a rich person will have to wait just as long as a poor person."
