Is the US next?

Quote:I wonder about Spooky's question; why is there such a wait?

That is the important question about this story. Nothing in it suggests the treatment he would have gotten in Canada would have been medically different (I'm not saying one way or the other, it's an unknown based on this piece.)

It may have to do with the docs, it may have to do with the cost, it may have to do with the paper-pushers in the bureaucracy, it may be something else entirely.

That's why I noted that, IMHO, under American law, the remedy would be a means of expediting the matter. It's a due process issue.

But the mere fact that the Canadian system is "single payer," without more (facts) is an insufficient argument to oppose <i>major, huge, significant</i> health care reforms in the U.S. (Do I feel strongly about that?)
