Fox News Alert: Canada Joins Axis of Evil
"Canada is the only nation other than Cuba and North Korea that bans private health insurance, according to Sally Pipes, head of the Pacific Research Institute in San Francisco and author of a recent book on Canada's health-care system."
Cuba and North Korea? What is she getting at, anyway?
As far as I can tell, nowhere in the Canada Health Act does it say that private health insurance is "banned" -- and then there's the fact that over 95% of Canadian hospitals -- as well as many other sources of care in their 'socialist' medical system -- are operated as private entities. (See here for more on the Canadian healtcare system.) Memo to Pacific Research Institute: "private" does not mean "for-profit." Private and non-profit are not mutually exclusive!
Perhaps "Sally" is Daniel's new alias?
