The country’s universal health care system is brought into the debate on Obama’s plans for reform.
Press Release – Wired PR News – The universal health care system in place in Canada has come under scrutiny as those opposing President Barack Obama’s plans for health care reform attempt to paint it in a negative light. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), many in Canada have come to the defense of their system, which is designed to ensure that critical health care is provided to all in need.
Policy analyst Dr. Michael M. Rachlis, is quoted by the AP as stating of the issue, “We’ve heard talk in the U.S. that you may die here because of long wait times, you can’t choose the doctors or the care you want and that the government makes your health decisions for you, but none of that is really true… I think there’s a lot that the U.S. could learn from Canada.”
Despite the widespread support for Canadian Medicare, many reportedly continue to debate whether a private sector should also be included in the system.
