“If we had Single Payer you could still get your own private insurance.

Can you name one country that has some form of Single Payer that its citizens can't stand?

One?

Please?”

“Well, considering the average doctor in the US makes $186,000, and the average doctor in Canada makes $125,000, where do you think the better doctors will choose to practice? Also, considering the long waiting lines in Canada (keep in mind.....the entire country has a smaller population than the state of California), how do you think that will translate over here in America? In my mind......havoc would ensue. America is far more densely populated than Canada is. The waiting lines would be absolutely horrible.”

“There's a reason Canadians consider Tommy Douglas "the greatest Canadian of all time". He was the architect of their health care system.”

“This is nothing like Canada's.. and BTW- whenever those with the ability up there need something time sensitive done, they come to the US. If the ACA was such a good system, the Administration would not have to give his favorite groups special treatment ("all will be treated equal"...remember that?), have the majority of the program roll out AFTER the '14 election (corporate enrollment... why do you think that is?) nor all the MANY other lies and deceptions he's all but out right admitted was done to get the votes.And to dump this along our national debt into the laps of following generations? Liberal Democrats = Spoiled Dependents who pass their self-serving policy under guise of helping others.”

“Most Canadians I've talked to complain about their healthcare system, saying they have long waiting lines. Also, keep in mind that the population of the entire country of Canada is only 34 million......that's less than the population of the state of California. Things are a little more complex when you deal with over 300 million.”

“Throughout the turbulent 60s and into the 70s (and maybe still), Michigan was in the top three states in Ku Klux Klan activity. (Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh were not anomalies). Think about the competition: Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky.

Maybe Paul should have chosen a softer target. Or maybe he should just try DOING something good, for a change.”

“Pure fantasy, Craig. Gerrymandering will keep the House in Republican hands for at least the next four elections. It's the lasting effect of lazy Lefties who sat on their hands in 2010.

Senators are chosen state-wide, so their elections will more accurately reflect the American people. That's good news for Progressives.”

“Since Barack Hussein Obama was inaugurated in January of. 2009:

- the federal deficit has declined every year.

- the federal deficit is shrinking faster than it has since WWII.

- the ratio of private sector employees to government employees is higher than it's been in three decades.

- the number of Americans employed by our government is the smallest since 1967.

- Forbes Magazine (hardly a Left leaning rag) called Obama "the most frugal president since Eisenhower".

To recap, under President Obama, the government is shrinking and the deficit is shrinking (there might be a correlation there.)

I can't be sure where you're developing these absurdly backwards ideas about the economics in this country, but I think we can all make a few guesses about where you're getting your news.

Be well.”
