Get your butt over to Hot Air right now, and read this post on health care policy by my blog-friend Laura, who blogs at Pursuing Holiness. Laura writes about the myth of the millions of uninsured who cannot afford coverage. She outlines the many ways in which free care is available to everyone, including illegal immigrants, and those who cannot pay the full price. This is a MUST READ post.
Excerpt from Laura’s post:
…basic care and life-saving care is available to every human being who manages to set foot in this country, regardless of their ability to pay.
…Thanks to EMTALA, emergency rooms are required to help you.
…Thanks to hundreds of thousands of charity hospitals and community health centers – via both charities and government – you can get free or sliding-scale payment care.
I wanted to supplement her post with some of my own videos.
And one more video from On The Fence Films called “Dead Meat“.
Dead Meat is a 25 minute short film which shows the reality of health care under Canada’s socialized medical system: Canadians wait … and wait … and wait. … And sometimes they die while waiting for free government health care.
