Health care

Recommended Posts

I've been bitching about health care for years, hoping politicians would take the problems seriously. So far this election that has not happened. And that's double so with the Liberals, who are offering to fix everything about health care - everything, all at one go! No details on how, though. No spending commitments. Not even any costing. These are the kinds of promises you know are completely worthless, and just being thrown out to win votes. Even the picture in here looks like some punk desperately throwing out promises he has no intention of keeping.

The claim: "A re-elected Liberal government will make sure every Canadian has access to a family doctor, to mental health services, to affordable prescription drugs and to national pharmacare."

— The federal Liberals tout their promise to boost health care funding by $6 billion over the coming four years.

The Greens plan is estimated to cost 37 billion...   how on earth are they going to pay for that and keep funding for the crappy health care system we have now.

Again, policy stimulus free money party, voters are not going to care about debt until it costs something, moral hazard is in effect, but it's the central banks which are inciting it.

In fairness to the Liberals, this is not limited to Canada, America is doing it, Europe is doing it, everybody has drunk the kool-aid

Governments have  become addicted to the stimulus which was supposed to be an emergency measure in 2008, that has now become the new normal.

How are they going to pay . . . . care to guess ?  In addition, lovely Elizabeth will tax the shit out of any existing big companies which will scare future investment away. Dummy ways my friend, dummy ways . . .

Greens and NDP have no expectation of actually winning a majority, so what they say is pretty much irrelevant.   As power brokers in a minority, might be a different story, but I still doubt their election platform will be adopted as policy, never mind legislation - even by a minority co-alition.

You haven't been listening to the left, have you?   Simply tax the rich...who will gladly just stay here, keep their money here and endlessly reward failure to the very bottom of their bank accounts.
