One of the most overlooked stories of the week is the leader of Canada’s socialist New Democratic Party Jack Layton linked the future of his country’s universal health care system to President Obama’s public health care program in a Washington speech Wednesday. The Washington Times story is here.
Many conservative groups have pointed to Canada’s universal health care system as a reason to keep the American health care system in the private sector.
Americans for Prosperity Foundation's campaign, for example, launched an ad campaign last week featuring a Canadian woman named Shona Holmes who was
diagnosed with brain tumor and says in the ad the only way she survived was by seeking treatment in America.
Mr. Layton’s trip comes at the beginning of an aggressive effort to ramp up grassroots support for President Obama’s health care plan by Organizing for America. While in Washington, Mr. Layton met with Democrats on Capitol Hill as well as White House Communications Director Anita Dunn.
In the run-up to Mr. Layton’s visit, his party sought fundraising solicitations using an image of an economy-class plane ticket from Ottawa to Washington for the Canadian leader. In the bottom left corner it said: “SUPPORT OBAMA’S FIGHT FOR UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE. PROTECT MEDICARE BACK IN CANADA.”
Michelle Malkin writes about CanadaCare and accurately questions
whether CanadaCare killed "The Parent Trap" actress Natasha Richardson here.
The reality is Obama and the liberals have no good intentions here. It is about power and control of Americans--and keeping it. If they truly cared about YOUR healthcare, then they would have passed the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act of 2009 (ORIGINALLY INTRODUCED IN 1997) a long, long time ago. I repeat: this bill was first introduced in Congress in 1997 and has been delayed and never voted on for 11 years.
DO YOU THINK CONGRESS REALLY GIVES RAT'S BEHIND ABOUT YOU?!
THEY COULD CARE LESS, OTHERWISE THIS BILL WOULD HAVE BEEN PASSED.
HEALTHCARE FOR ALL AMERICANS OR "OBAMACARE" IS ABOUT THE PERMANENT POWER GRAB OF LEFT-WING POLITICIANS OVER THE SECOND MOST PRECIOUS PART OF YOUR LIFE.
THEY ALREADY TOOK YOUR FREEDOM AND SOME OF YOU STILL DON'T EVEN KNOW IT.
