Gettin that free health care in Canada

From  Forbes on another aspect of Canadian healthcare - WAITING in the queue:

Canadians lose a lot of money waiting for their "free" socialized medicine. On average, patients forfeit over $1,800 in lost wages. And that's only counting the working hours they miss due to pain and immobility.

The Fraser Institute researchers also calculated the value of all the waking hours that patients lost because they couldn't fully function. The toll was staggering -- almost $5,600 per patient, totaling $5.8 billion nationally. And those calculations ignore the value of uncompensated care provided by family members, who often take time off work or quit their jobs to help ill loved ones.

In 2020, when President Trump is reelected and we retake the House and gain a fillabuster proof majority in the Senate, then you can blame President Trump and the Republicans for this continuing mess in Washington.

Sweet!

Seeing your awful sig pics always makes me smile. The worst album covers theme is a good choice.
  

If you are more fortunate than others, build a longer table, not a taller fence.

I have a tshirt with "Goebbels- the Musical" on it.

I find it so funny that I have trouble even saying it out loud.


If I get beaten up because of it I will sue Beryl.

Just talking about the ones who could buy a home and save money but didn't buy insurance?  Yaaaaa, there must be many STUPID Canadians.
