Canada’s Top Doctors Pan Their Non-Competitive Nationalized System

The current and former presidents of the Canadian Medical Association all pan the imploding, non-competitive Canadian health rationing system.

Do you think our media will report this?


Here is my latest column at American Issues Project:

On Thursday August 20, Dr. Brian Day, the former President of the Canadian Medical Association dropped a bomb on Obamacare during his interview with Bill O’Reilly. The former top Canadian doctor shed some light on what Americans can expect from a government run health care rationing scheme. The former top doc told Bill O’Reilly that if the democratic health care plan turns out to be anything like the Canadian plan then Americans can expect rationed care, long waiting lists and skyrocketing costs. He didn’t hold back. Here is what Dr. Brian Day said about the Canadian health care system:

Bill O’Reilly: Dr. Day what is the biggest problem with your health care system?

Dr. Brian Day: Well, the biggest problem is access. By access we have, in the Canadian system the first line of defense for a sick patient is the family doctor. And, in a population of 33 million Canadians 5 million Canadians do not have a family doctor.

Bill O’Reilly: Is it because the doctors don’t get paid as well as doctors get paid as well in the United States? We have 30% more doctors per 100,000. Is it because they are not getting paid as well?

Dr. Brian Day: No, we rank 26 out of 28 in the developed countries as far as doctors to population. Its part of the mechanism of rationing that has to happen when you promise to deliver everything and don’t have enough resources

You can read the rest on what the other top Canadian doctors had to say about their non-competitive health care system here. There is also a list of my recent columns on this page.
