state of the art

Clinton: Got stent that's rare in Canada.

If the Canadian health care system is as good as the Left claims, why didn't former President Bill Clinton sneak across the border to Toronto last week for cardiac stent surgery?

Short answer: Such surgeries are expensive and rare in government-run health care systems, which is why government-run health care isn't state-of-the-art care.

Yet, the diabolical Democrats are still trying to force it upon America, anyway, will of the people be damned.

The Dems aren't trying to force anything on anyone. If people want to continue to allow insurance companies to fleece them and deny them coverage after they've paid into the system for years they'd have every right to do so. I'm just sad that all they're pushing for is insurance reform not healthcare reform. The whole system needs an overhaul. Regardless of what kind of plan we wind up with my health care plan is to try my best to stay out of any healthcare system. There's nothing state of the art about the system as it is either. The last place anyone should want to be is in a hospital under any health care plan. The healthcare plan I recommend is lots of rest, exercise and a healthy diet.

"The Dems aren't trying to force anything on anyone."

Really? Sixty percent of the country DOESN'T want the brand of 'health care reform' the Democrats are trying to force through.

And what Obama and the Democrats are pushing isn't reform at all. It's government-controlled care, which doesn't work. Look at bankrupt Canada. Democrats are always talking about how great Canadian health care is. Wrong. The Canadian government is now pushing PRIVATIZATION within their own system.

The Dem plans guts Medicare, which means my 73 year old Mother will be without care. They'll raise taxes on everybody. They'll ration care. Health care costs RISE under the Dems plans and they don't don't address tort reform/frivolous lawsuits, which is a major cause of fraud and waste. They won't insure as many people as they promised and instead of your insurance company being the middleman between you and your doctor, the government will tell your doctor when you can and can't receive treatment. Going to the doctor will be like going to the Post Office. Joy.

The GOP health care plan ensures more people, saves money, addresses tort reform/frivolous lawsuits, provides portability AND brings the patient face to face with their doctor. No more insurance company middleman.

Had Obama been the true bi-partisan guy he claims he'd have already worked all this stuff out with the Republicans and it would have signed into law in 2009. Instead, he gave the entire process over to the idiots Reid and Pelosi, who did nothing transparently. They just wrote multiple bills in secret.

"There's nothing state of the art" about the American health care system?

Really? America is the birthplace of most modern medical techniques, drugs and treatments. Factoring in these advancements of our system is a big reason why American health care costs more.

American doctors and hospitals perform procedures on patients that countries like Canada and Great Britain won't.

Rest, exercise and healthy diets only get you so far.

Medicare... hmmm... a Republican idea? How about Social Security? Hmmm...

Weird that when these concepts were put forward people complained about Socialism. The right throws those words around and its a joke.

The joke is that (1.) you don't know what the hell you're talking about and (2.) you're too much of a coward to publicly identify yourself.

Medicare and Social Security? All FDR entitlements. And bureaucratic, big government, interventionist programs at that. Yeah, it's kinda Socialism.

SS and Medicare will never be repealed because people will damn well demand they get what they were promised.

This is the GOP concern about Obamacare. Ram it through and it will be hard to repeal.
