Oy Canada!: Premier Update

Earlier this month, we reported on the Canadian Premier [ed: comparable to our "Governor"] who chose to ignore his country's fine - and FREE! - health care system in favor of one of those evil, greedy American providers. This blatant and unmitigated attack on socialized medicine came at a time when our own country is considering such a system, and undermines our efforts to nationalize our own broken and inadequate health care system.

Even more appalling is the reason this ungrateful pol gave for his decision:

"An unapologetic Danny Williams says he was aware his trip to the United States for heart surgery earlier this month would spark outcry, but he concluded his personal health trumped any public fallout over the controversial decision."

How dare he?!

Impugning the superior - and FREE! - Canadian system just because he wanted effective health care. And it gets worse:

"[H]e went to Miami to have a "minimally invasive" surgery..."

So one can't count on the outstanding - and FREE! - Candian system for even minor ailments?

Please remind me why this would be worth emulating.
