The Failure of Socialized Medicine In Canada

That's right, folks. As it turns out, our universal single-payer crypto-socialist health care scheme may, in fact, have its weaknesses.

As innocuous as our "nationalized health insurance" has been made out to be, the state of Canadian health care today should be enough to worry even its most stalwart defenders. Our moribund medicine program does not and cannot address our serious wait-time problem and it has revealed itself to be troublingly slow to adopt new technologies and medicines. The monopsonistic approach to health care has been a blast but it's passed time that we stop pillaging the middle class to prop up an ineffective and immoral system. And the sooner the better, I say.
