Prime Minister Paul Martin vowed Thursday that Canada's public healthcare system would remain intact, despite a Supreme Court of Canada ruling opening the door for private care in Quebec.Pauly? Come on... get your head out of your ass. It seems that only Paul Martin is important enough to receive his healthcare from a private clinic. I guess us rubes will just have to learn to enjoy the scraps that our national elite throw us.
"We're not going to have a two-tier healthcare system in this country," he told reporters following Thursday's ruling.
"Nobody wants that."
Anyways, Paul Martin even had the nerve to praise his past work in fixing the healthcare system:
Mr. Martin said the government's objective has been to have the "best public, accessible, universal healthcare system we can."I'd like to ask how exactly $41 billion dollars is going to fix waiting lines? I'll tell you this, 4 years from now waiting lists will be just as long as they are now. Most of the $41 billion will get eaten up by the healthcare bureaucracy before much of it ever makes it's way to a clinic or operating room.
"That is why we invested over $41-billion over ten years, and that is why, together with the provinces, we implemented a whole strategy to reduce waiting times," he said.
