Gummint Health Care Priorities

Oh, yeah.

One of the recurring concerns about having the government in charge of health care (so we can be more like Canada and Britain) is what happens when the government has to decide which health concerns are highest priority? This video shows what happened when two people in Ontario needed medical care. One of them was put on a waiting list for a procedure--and because the waiting list was so long, she had to have her bladder removed, and now has a charming little bag attached instead.

The other person has the good fortune to have a medical "problem" that Ontario's Health Minister thinks is really important: he was born the wrong sex.

Think of Jim Doyle being the 'authority' on health-care decisions.
