I’ve always held that the advocates of government-run health care are motivated primarily by the desire to redistribute wealth and income. This week, a devasting story published in the Canadian newspaper The National Post called Dying to save “The System” describes the Canadian system accurately:
For defenders of Canada’s government-monopoly health care system, there is only one goal that truly matters. And, no, despite their earnest insistences to the contrary, that goal is not the health of patients. It is the preservation of the public monopoly at all costs, even patients’ lives.
Be sure to read the whole story – and then ask yourself what are the true motives of those who say that “health care is a right” and that government should make our medical decisions for us.
