Petition

  • Whereas: The escalating costs of health insurance and health care are creating unprecedented strains on our economy;

    Whereas: our businesses function in a global economy where healthcare is provided as infrastructure for the competition;

    Whereas: there are presently 45 million uninsured Americans;

    Whereas: healthcare costs are a leading cause of corporate and personal bankruptcies;

    Whereas: our spending on Medicare and Medicaid alone exceeds per capita spending for universal coverage in other developed countries;

    Whereas: the federal, state and local governments of the United States already spend 45% of all healthcare dollars;

    Whereas: healthcare costs continue to grow at a rate in excess of three times the Consumer Price Index, growth which cannot be sustained.

    We, the undersigned, do hereby petition the Congress of the United States to establish a system of Universal Healthcare for all Americans.

    Such a system would embody the following features:

    Care and coverage universally available for all

    Freedom to choose service provider

    Single-payer insurance similar to other developed nations.

To sign this petition, you will need to leave your name e-mail address at the link below.

Actually, most country's with single coverage don't have any freedom to choose which doctor they go to. Canadian doctor's exit Canada en masse to practice here. They hate their system. You are providing a lot of misinformation, misleading to say the least, on this blog. Thanks, Edward.

For some facts about the Canadian system compared to ours, check out the analysis of "O Canada" posted on the Health Care Blog. This is the blog linked to by my article.

We disagree about the facts of the situation. I have posted the link to my source. I would like to see actual data supporting the assertion that Canadians are coming here in droves.

How about it, Ed?
