You Yanks are going to love figuring out it doesn't work... You should be thanking the Repub's...

Paying cash for good doctors and care is the new thing in BC.



EDIT, If you're talking to me Norton, ask any Canuk you know, they'll tell you I'm correct, sorry aye, ya, Yanks are feuuuuuked....

Norton,

So far we explored 4 plans and the cheapest is a 75% increase. Granted we will keep looking, but it doesn't appear to be very promising.

This was and is a huge mistake and it's all O bummers

That fact that the Corpo-terrorists of big Med are extorting the American tax payers with outrageous pricing doesn't mean there isn't more than enough money in the system to provide quality affordable health care for all Americans.

Truly amazing story on who this women really is.

If she runs, the likes of DRF, NORTON Etal will indeed vote for her regardless the truth of who and what she truly is.

"In June, I attended a dinner for Bill Clinton, which was educational. Clinton spoke passionately about his foundation, about African wildlife, inequality, childhood obesity, and much else with enormous factual command, emotion, and rhetorical power. But he and I also spoke privately. I asked him about the financial crisis. He paused and then became even more soulful, thoughtful, passionate, and articulate. And then he proceeded to tell me the most amazing lies I've heard in quite a while.

For example, Mr. Clinton sorrowfully lamented his inability to stop the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which banned all regulation of private (OTC) derivatives trading, and thereby greatly worsened the crisis. Mr. Clinton said that he and Larry Summers had argued with Alan Greenspan, but couldn't budge him, and then Congress passed the law by a veto-proof supermajority, tying his hands. Well, actually, the reason that the law passed by that overwhelming margin was because of the Clinton Administration's strong advocacy, including Congressional testimony by Larry Summers and harsh public and private attacks on advocates of regulation by Summers and Robert Rubin.

Wow, I thought, this guy is a really good actor. And I also saw one reason why Hillary Clinton might not be thrilled about my movie. I discovered others. In Arkansas, she joined the boards of Walmart and Tyson Foods. One of the largest donors to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation is the government of Saudi Arabia. The Clintons' personal net worth now probably exceeds $200 million, and while earned legally, both the money's sources and the Clintons' public statements indicate a strong aversion to rocking boats or making powerful enemies.

It was not always thus. When Bill Clinton became President, he and Hillary initially attempted courageous reforms: allowing gays to serve in the military, a carbon tax, health care reform. But they got their heads handed to them: Colin Powell went on television telling America that if gays served in the military, morale would suffer. And the Clintons also learned about money, because back then they had none. When they were mercilessly hounded by Kenneth Starr and Congressional Republicans, culminating in impeachment, their legal bills soared and the Clintons fell many millions of dollars into debt. (To be sure, Bill Clinton poured gasoline on the fire by lying.) It is very clear that the Clintons then decided never to be at anyone's mercy again. And since Bill Clinton first became Governor of Arkansas, the cost of Presidential campaigns has gone from $66 million (both parties combined, in 1976) to an estimated $5 billion for 2016, when Hillary will run. So more than ever, the Clintons need money and the people who supply it."

noticed how the complaints about the ACA

have nothing to point out than problems inserted into it by their own side as part of the compromise which got it passed?

No question that we pay twice as much for half the care that other developed democracies do.


Tami posted earlier that her family of 4 in Canada pays $130 a month. For a family of 4.

Gov't cost controls on medical goods and services are the next step - then, single payer.


All of which will happen. People just need to wake up and understand that health care can't be an out-of-control, for-profit system.

What point were you trying to make by posting that segment of the article? That she and Bill are rich?

BIG CORPORATION, GEO-ENGINEERED/HORMONE FED meats and even worse.... Financially Supported by the MOTHER LODE of BIG OIL.

Hypocrisy at it's best!


No wonder "Her" people did everything they could to ensure he never did the film on the REAL Hillary.

Thanks to Republicans in the House of Representatives, America's national parks and monuments are closed today -- disappointing as many as 750,000 visitors.

Republicans claim that nobody wants Obamacare.

Website goes live.

Website gets overloaded because everyone wants Obamacare.

Republicans start complaining that because they can't get Obamacare they should repeal it.
