Obama and Congress Must Get Same Health Plan As They Give Us

June 27, 2009 at 1:10 pm 8 comments


Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi want the government alternative health plan to be something that they would never give to themselves.

Barack Obama campaigned that the American Citizens should get health coverage “at least as good as we in the Senate have.”

We must hold him to that promise because, look at this email I just received:

    You should try getting your facts right. It isn’t ALL of Canada that lacks emergency helicopters — just Quebec Province. If Natasha had been skiing any place else in Canada, she might have survived. If you want to use her case as an example, say that the Quebec minister of health needs to be fired and that Quebec needs to provide emergency helicopter service if they want American tourists to ski there.

    Hey Joyce,
    If our politicians think Canada’s system is so great I suggest they go there with no preferential treatment for beings U. S. government politicians, officials or whatever you want to call them.

    Good post, Joyce.

    And, to Joyce Tyler….it doesn’t make me feel one bit better to know that a person must have an accident in a particular part of Canada to get help.

    What a scurrilous piece of falsehood.

    Richardson, her ski instructor, and the ski patrol, decided not to go to the hospital immediately. That decision probably killed her.

    It had nothing to do with care available. It had to do with the first aid decision.

    Shame on whoever wrote that letter for using this tragic death, and lying about it.

    Yves Coderre, director of operations at the emergency services company that sent paramedics to the Mont Tremblant resort, told The Globe and Mail newspaper that he reviewed the dispatch records and the first 911 call came at 12:43 p.m. Monday.

    Coderre said medics arrived at the hill 17 minutes later. But the actress refused medical attention, he said, so ambulance staffers turned and left after spotting a sled taking the still-conscious actress away to the resort’s on-site clinic.

    At 3 p.m., a second 911 call was made — this time from Richardson’s luxury hotel room — as her condition deteriorated. An ambulance arrived nine minutes later.

    “She was conscious and they could talk to her,” Coderre said. “But she showed instability.”

    Can we stick to the facts? Must we assume that there’s nothing really wrong with this bill, so people have to make stuff up whole cloth?

    Can you tell us who wrote that letter?

    The letter you quote is incorrect. My father, who is now 73, had a stent put in by the National Health Service here in England after his heart attack last year.

    No-one is denied appropriate treatment by the NHS because of their age.

    Your assertion regarding the UK’s NHS…

    “In England anyone over 59 cannot receive heart rep airs or stents or bypass because it is not covered as being too expensive and not needed.”

    … is complete nonsense and factually inaccurate. Taken together with your misreporting of the situation in Canada, one must question your commitment to honesty in your blog. Though it has to be said that your post does reflect the general standard of right wing debate on this very important issue.
