Geeze I sure bet they wish that the health care bill had already been passed so the could be getting that wonderful care that the Government has promised us

Majority Leader Harry Reid's wife and daughter were hospitalized Thursday -- the wife with a broken back and neck -- after their minivan was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer truck on an interstate highway in suburban Virginia, authorities said.

I wonder if that was a Toyota Mini Van ??

Must have been a run-away Toyota tractor trailer!

Anyway, I hope that they pull through their injuries quickly and have no lasting problems from this accident.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

Well thats for sure !! There so worried about ramming this bill down our throat that they would sell there on souls and throw there on kin under the bus. You know I used to have feelings about anybody getting sick or hurt Republician or Democrat but I am slowly not giving a damn any more. When you have the left wishing that Glenn Beck should have been the one that got shot in the pentagon shooting or making fun of Sarah Palins kids and just yesterday I read where some idiot wishes if Carrie Prejean ever has kids they hope they all turn out gay Well you know it's always a constant drumbeat of insults from the left and we conservatives just lay down and take it like we're there door mat! Well screw them I don't care any more I'm tired of always being on there sick side of there jokes.

So as the left would say had this been Glen Becks wife or Rush Limbaugh ( They deserved it )

Cwaldo123, you are completely stupid.

In Canada you would be rushed to the hospital and get BETTER treatment than in the states without it costing a dime. You forget, your 34th in the world in health care and it has to do with sitting in pain in the waiting room while they decide if you can afford the painkillers.
Only an IDIOT thinks you will get better care in the USA..., without cold hard cash, none of you cares at all

You are dumb and do not know what you are talking about in any way shape of form.

Canada’s healthcare disaster
By Dick Morris - 11/03/09 04:44 PM ET
After more than a decade of public healthcare with mandatory coverage, so many Canadian doctors have left the practice and so many young people have entered other fields that Canada ranks 26th of 28 developed nations in its ratio of physicians to population. Once, Canada ranked among the leaders in the number of physicians, but that was before government healthcare drove doctors out of the practice in droves.

The fundamental fact is that we cannot cover 36 million new patients without more doctors and nurses, much less with the declining census of medical professionals the Canadian experience points to. A recent survey of doctors by the Pew Institute found that 45 percent of all practicing doctors would consider retiring or closing their practices if the Obama healthcare bill passes. This scarcity of medical personnel heightens the likelihood of draconian rationing, lengthy waiting lists and lower-quality medical care for all of us, particularly for the elderly.

This physician shortage leads to massive and never-ending waiting lists. In 1993, for example, there was an average wait of 9.3 weeks from the time a patient got a referral from a general practitioner to the time he could see a specialist. By 1997, the wait was up to 11.7 weeks. Now it’s 17.3 weeks — over four months just to see a specialist!

In Canada, unions control the entire healthcare process. In Manitoba, for example, there is an eight-month wait for colonoscopies, yet the unions do not permit weekend or evening procedures, thereby extending the waiting lists. The unions are doing to healthcare in Canada what they have done to education in America: stifling creativity, reinforcing bureaucracy and extending waiting times.

Because of these long waits for colonoscopies, there is now a 25 percent higher incidence of colon cancer in Canada than in the United States. And because the leading drugs that we routinely use to treat the malady in the U.S. are banned in Canada because of their high cost, 41 percent of Canadians who get the cancer die of it, compared with only 32 percent in the United States. Overall, the cancer death rate in Canada runs 16 percent higher than in the United States. Cancer does not wait for waiting lists to clear.

The potential of healthcare changes to shrink the doctor population, exacerbating scarcity and extending waits, is even worse now that it is apparent we have overestimated the number of doctors in the U.S. Where we once thought there were 840,000 doctors, the total is now estimated to be only 760,000.

The proposed $400 billion cut in Medicare raises the probability that more and more of those doctors who do practice will refuse to accept Medicare patients, aggravating the doctor shortage among the elderly, the population that needs them the most.

So suck on that eSmith

eSmith just wants the US to be in the same boat as Canada and much of the rest of the world when their healthcare systems fails.

You can bet that that figure is going to get worse with time. No doubt about that.

Nice job Canada.

Dick Morris? You mean the guy who likes hookers and doesn't pay his taxes? You think he's against Canadian health care because it's bad or because he doesn't want to pay his taxes.

He has a history of flip flops (look at his stance on the clintons over the years, seems to depend of what he is personally getting out of it) and doesn't like to pay tax, but you think he is credible when discussing something he might have to help pay for?

Wait Times for Health Care in Canada
Long wait times for access to certain health care procedures have been a growing complaint about the Canadian health care system. As governments in Canada struggle to reduce health care wait times, many provincial governments are publishing the data on the wait times for specific procedures in their provinces.

Wait times for surgery in Canada at all-time high: study
Last Updated: Monday, October 15, 2007 | 10:33 AM ET
The Canadian Press
A typical Canadian seeking surgical or other therapeutic treatment had to wait 18.3 weeks in 2007, an all-time high, according to new research published Monday by independent research organization the Fraser Institute.

"Despite government promises and the billions of dollars funnelled into the Canadian health-care system, the average patient waited more than 18 weeks in 2007 between seeing their family doctor and receiving the surgery or treatment they required," said Nadeem Esmail, director of Health System Performance Studies at the Fraser Institute and co-author of the 17th annual edition of Waiting Your Turn: Hospital Waiting Lists in Canada.

Specific proceedures means we put emergencies in front of elective surgeries regardless of the rich persones complaints about not being able to buy your way to the front of the line.

Keep cutting and pasting stuff if you like but please try to understand it first.

And responding to you keyboard warrior statments in private was meant to show respect to the OTHER members of the fourm who don't need to see what a little pissant I think you are.

Obviously, this kind of consideration for others is beyond you.
