A piece in the Edmonton Journal begins with three stunning and gripping paragraphs. Anyone on the fence about the benefits of universal health care needs to read this.
The writer said, “Statistics for 2009 compiled by Harvard Medical School and the U.S. Census Bureau show that, in the insurance-dominated U.S. healthcare system, 45,000 Americans died because they had no health insurance; 922,819 Americans went bankrupt because of medical expenses; 50,700,000 Americans have no health insurance.
The comparable figures from the Canadian health-care system are zero, zero and zero.
Which health-care system would you rather have?”
