Free Health Care in Canada is a Myth

Aug 7, 2017

As liberal Democrats like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and even Chuck Schumer increase their calls for the United States to adopt a single payer health care system, also known as socialist medicine, they cite the “successes” of the Canadian system. They are hiding the fact that the Canadian system is collapsing. It is not free health care, in fact with the increased taxes, Canadians are paying over $1.000 per month for their “free” care.

They are also hiding the fact that the wait times for medical procedures can be as long as six months. This caused over 63,000 Canadians to leave Canada in 2016 to seek medical care elsewhere, usually in the U.S. Yet, this ailing system is what liberals want us to adopt in this country.
