Interesting op-ed regarding the health care debate

Very good article.

really brings to light, what is essentially, a microcosm of what seems to be going on in the US.
Truth has taken a back seat to perception, and the sensationalism is driving perception.

The scary thing is that by the end of the article I could imagine people proclaiming that it was all BS because it was written by a democrat.

Very true, no system is perfect.
While I will not deny that our system has problems, I would choose it over the American system any day.
Though of course that is MY preference. Its quite obvious others would choose differently.

Well I am in Canada but I'll give you my perspective.
In this situation, I could sometime next week. (Blew my knee 2 years ago)
OR
Tomorrow if i wanted to pay out of pocket for it.

In another case, I need MRI's on my heart. Cardiologists wants me to have them Bi-annually. First one will be in January (6 months since my last) and I will put in the requisition for it middle of December. So for a MRI check up its probably about 3-4 weeks.

Another situation (seen multiple times when volunteering in ER) if I was to come in with an injury that Triage deemed to be potentially life threatening, and an MRI was needed. I would get that MRI in the time would take me to get to the Diagnostic imaging wing.

I am in 100% agreement with you. I myself will have heart operation soon, and I will not have to sell a car or mortgage a house.

This thread is about "how would we do it because the numbers wont work" ... well a vast number of other countries have figured it out. Yes they are all different but they made it a priority and made it happen.
You should see the debates in Canada when the scandalous notion of a private option is brought up!...

The only thing that seems to be globally constant in Health care is that no one wants theirs changed.
I consider myself fairly conservative (For a Canadian.... therefore I think that makes me communist no?) but I love our health care system.

I had a major surgery last year that required a week hospital stay. From first consultation to when I stopped getting at home care, the whole process took 4 months, 1 one of those months includes hospital stay and at home care.

I will most likely require two more surgeries in the next year (one being a major heart surgery) and I am pretty happy that I wont be 1) paying out of pocket or 2) living at the mercy of my insurance company who control my monthly rates.

I realized last week that nothing makes me appreciate Canada (as a whole, not just health care) more than reading these political forums or the "Discussions" that happen on Foxnews.com / Cnn.com. I don't know why i even look at those... "Discussions"... but i surmise it has something to do with the same reason people cant look away from a train wreck..

Any help here would be appreciated!
I am looking for opinions on the processing of these two shots.
If you have seen my other thread under a similar heading, it explains that I recently proposed in Bermuda.
I have been playing around with these 2 pictures and at this point I don't know which versions I prefer.
So let me know what you like!

I proposed to my girlfriend of 6 years on my recent trip to Bermuda.
We will probably have some proper shots done, but while we were away I took a couple of her with her new little ring.

I'll post a few here, and in another thread I'll ask about which processing works best for a few pictures.

Comments and Critiques appreciated!
