OTTAWA — Wait times for medical treatment aren't getting any shorter, according to a report by the Wait Times Alliance.

"Not only has there been no progress over the last year in wait times in any of the five priority areas, in many instances Canadians are waiting longer now than they were two years ago," WTA chair Dr. Chris Simpson said Tuesday.

The WTA looked at five priority areas — cancer care, cardiac care, joint replacement, sight restoration and diagnostic imaging — and found that even where wait times aren't increasing, the aging population is putting increased demand on a medical system unable to meet them.

Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq said the feds have made "targeted investments" of $6.5 billion to help address wait times.

However, the WTA's eight annual report, released Tuesday, concluded the problem goes beyond money needs.

"Additional funding is not the sole solution," Simpson said, adding that when short-term funds are added, they lead only to short-term improvement. "The best route is to look at how wait times are mitigated, measured, monitored and managed."

Aglukkaq also highlighted the government's long-term funding arrangement "that will see transfers reach historic levels of $40 billion by the end of the decade."

But with Canada's aging population all but guaranteed to put increasing demand on the medical system, Simpson said a national strategy is needed.

Aglukkaq says that is why the government is investing in more than 10,000 health research projects.

Yes, absolutely agree. When single payer healthcare was first brought about in Canada; similar ignorant remarks were made; "Oh, it's socialism, it's communism, etc"; well, now no Canadian would give it up. Imagine an entire country that doesn't have to worry about going bankrupt if they have to have surgery?
The entire world looks at these teabaggers in wonderment! Who wouldn't want to have healthcare? Seriously?
Many Canadians travel to the US for treatment rather than jeopardizing their lives waiting in line in Canada.

Demons, Lily? Because many middle class families will pay more for health care, the poverty level is growing, half the country is on welfare already, more people are working part-time than ever before and the middle class aren't being treated the same as corporations and Congress?

Really? Demons?

<quoted text>Obamacare trade-off: Lower premium, higher deductible
WASHINGTON — You might be pleased with the low monthly premium for one of the new health insurance plans under Obama’s takeover, but the added expense of co-payments and deductibles will burn a hole in your wallet.

Nothing necessarily wrong with insurance that reduces premium cost by asking the insured to assume more of the risk. The real problem with ObamaKKKare is the taxpayer subsidy that steals from working Americans.

His version of the shutdown was so one-sided, it was amusing.

Time for Republicans to say, "Okay, Obama, it's your baby."

Time for Obama to use the 14th Amendment to fund the Gov't.

But it appears he will let the Repugnants twist in the wind for awhile longer.

Bonehead refuses to allow an up or down vote on funding the Gov't.

That proves he knows he'd lose the vote. Moderate Repugnants are deserting Bonehead in droves.

Republicans are terrified that soon people will see that Obamacare helped them. Not only will right wing haters be exposed as liars but Obama will look tough and brilliant! If they didn't fear the success of Obamacare they would step back and let people see for themselves and watch it self-destruct.
It will help a few people but will hurt a lot of other people. Especially when everyone's health care starts being rationed.

Who will end up paying for it is still up in the air somewhere.

Obama is relishing this shutdown far too much.
Like in the Gingrinch shutdown, the Repugnants are going to lose big on this one.

Gingrinch thought it was a winner, but it cost the Repugnants dearly.

History is repeating itself.

Obama will have a Democrat House and Senate in 2015.

It'll get stronger when Hillary wins the presidency in 2016.

Remember the doom that was coming with Obama's sequestration that he had hoped would end up hurting Republicans.

Nothing happened.

Today, the market is doing just fine.

Don't think it's going to work this time either.

The last time there was a shutdown the Obamas spent a ton of taxpayer $$ on their African trip? Where are they going this time?

Or will they just stay in the D.C. hood and entertain Hollyweird sympathizers at the White House with another secret Halloween Party.

If this trayvon was murdered by someone who could be exploited by sharpton you would know about him 15-year-old Trayvon Dodd was remembered Thursday night at a Greenville County Little League football game on Thursday in Greenville, SC.
The teenager was shot to death on Wednesday, September 11 during a visit to his 12-year-old friend. The 12-year-old shot Trayvon dead outside a home at 1 Woodleigh Drive. The police received a call about gunfire at 6:16pm and arrived to find the boy dead.
The 12-year-old was charged with involuntary manslaughter. How the 12-year-old acquired the gun is unknown. He has been released into the custody of his parents.
The Put Down the Guns Young People organization was present on Thursday night with one message to parents,‘Keep guns out of the hands of your kids.’
The organization presented Trayvon’s family with a football and the crowd paused for a moment of silence.

You don't have a clue about much of anything, do you, Loser? Are you completely toilet trained yet? Do you order from the pictures on the menu and then just use your card because you can't do any math process except to multiply? Involuntary manslaughter by a twelve-year-old has nothing to do with the Trayvon Martin case. You still sending Georgy Pudgy Loser contributions? You may have to cut back if Ted Cruz is your nominee in 2016.

The Affordable Care Act, the most sweeping health care program created in a half century, is expected to extend coverage to 25 million Americans over the next decade, according to the most recent government estimates. But that will still leave a projected 31 million people without insurance by 2023. Those left out include undocumented workers and poor people living in the 21 states, such as Virginia, that have so far declined to expand Medicaid under the statute, commonly called Obamacare.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/ ...

"But that will still leave a projected 31 million people without insurance by 2023."

Obamacare is legislation designed to to confuse and then fail because stupid Americans just won't 'get it', a stepping stone en route to total gov't control via single-payer.
