A Canadian posted this:
"I'm a Canadian. In my province I pay the princely sum of $54/month ($80 for couples,$104 for families) for comprehensive single-payer health care. That covers all the doctor visits I may need, plus hospital care, specialist referrals, blood work, x-rays, MRI & Cat scans, ambulance, EMT, etc. I have separate, private coverage for dental, prescription drugs and extended & supplemental care (private hospital room, massage therapy, physio, orthotics, etc).
It's so much more efficient and cost effective than what my relatives in the US have. Nobody, but nobody in any industrialized country in the world wants the kind of overpriced, conditional medical care Americans are cursed with.
If private, for-profit medical insurance were superior to single-payer - if it were cheaper, more efficient and provided better health outcomes, there would be no debate here. The rest of the world would privatize medical insurance, just as so many countries have successfully privatized their post offices, government-owned airlines and other public services."
They have a very good point!
I pay $502 a month for the plan, about $ 150 extra for 5 meds......... I have a hefty deductable and I get billed for thousands after the douchebags pay the pittance they will pay.......... we get robbed.

the douchebags say I can save $50.00 per month if i add $2500.00 more to my deductable.....

Let's just ignore the FACT that she LIED about it in the first place.
She's a liar...she proved it with HER OWN WORDS.
Not to mention taking money that goes against her "beliefs."
these were all answered. I don't know what she lied about. Something when she was a child? I can't say I remember every hospital when I was a kid. You kinda just go where your parents take you right.

This isn't anything close to the ACORN lie Obama told anyway. Where were you on that one?

She lied when she stated that they received care in the U.S. then tells the people in Canada they actually went there to receive healthcare.

Again; why would she say they received care in the U.S. then tell the people in Canada they actually went there to receive healthcare??

Here's the rest of the story....

Until the early 1980s, there wasn't even a road to Skagway. That's right, you couldn't drive your car into Skagway. The only means of entry were by air, water or the railroad that ran between Skagway and Whitehorse.

Skagway, though a gold rush town in the 19th century, was little more than a ghost town, surviving only on the iron ore mines and the occasional cruise ship visit.

The closest and most accessible medical facilities were in Whitehorse. This story is much ado about nothing.

Anyone?

Apparently the abortion issue here in the U.S. doesn't bother you people on the right as much as you say or you wouldn't be ignoring her helping them in Canada to raise money in their medical field.

I'm sure that Sarah knows there are records in Canada, and people, that can bust her is she were to say something different.

She probably was not counting on people from the U.S. ever figuring it out.

Maybe because she's received health care in both countries.
