To those people who think we should try to invent new solutions to health care instead of looking at how other countries do it – here’s just one example, where Canadians pay half of what we do in the US to treat colon cancer – but get about the same outcomes:
“The one thing we think we can take from this is that the government sets the prices for what they pay for chemotherapy and for the drugs involved in this treatment in British Columbia,” he said. “In the US, price is really set by the market and what pharmaceutical companies are charging. “
This cause would be helped greatly without a ton of oh my God socialism communism we’re all going to die propaganda going on related to health care.
Oh well the real progressives, who got this, and who I should really have listened to better back then, did point out that if they were right about the ACA, then it would accelerate moving to a better system rather quickly because the pain will grow just as quickly.
