As It Turns Out Canada Health Care System Is Not That Great

The liberals often praise Canada for their health care system, but as it turns out the reality is not that perfect.

One new report just uncovered how much the Canadian citizens really pay for their “free” health care, and showed how flawed the system is that Democrats want to bring here in America.

Fraser Institute finds out the liberals think that Canadian citizens do not pay for their doctor visits, but that is a false belief.

“Canadians often misunderstand the true cost of our public health care system,” the institute found in a detailed report. “This occurs partly because Canadians do not incur direct expenses for their use of health care, and partly because Canadians cannot readily determine the value of their contribution to public health care insurance.”

It seems that the system is created to secretly make the Canadians pay a large amount of money without they knowing it. They pay through a different kind of taxes, local and national.

“Out of sight, out of mind” maybe this could work for some time, but ultimately the costs will be discovered.

A “typical Canadian family of four will pay $12,057 for health care in 2017—an increase of nearly 70 percent over the last 20 years,” the Fraser report said.

$1,000 per month it’s not even close to “free” and these expenses keep growing.

“For all those tax dollars, there is still a long waiting list for a host of operations, both routine and urgent. Another Fraser Institute study recently revealed that 63,000 Canadians left the country in 2016 to seek medical assistance elsewhere — usually the U.S.,” according to Fraser report.

An expert economist at the institute, Bacchus Barua, said that the waiting list for any medical procedure is nearly a half year.

“Services are being rationed,” Barua said. “In our last report on wait times in Canada, we discovered that the average wait time from referral to treatment was 20 weeks. That was the longest wait time in the history of our survey.”

So apparently, this socialist system is only great on paper and not in real life.

Almost every American knows that the health care system needs to be updated. The expenses are high, the system is very complex and it only got worse when Obamacare was forced on the people.

So, with all this in mind, a single payer system doesn’t sound so bad.

    I have many Canadian friends. Years ago when Obozo shoved his program down our throats they felt we had the best health care ever! But, it was pushed through and look what happened. Canadians pay high sales tax, like 15%, to help fund their health care, also a lot of their drugs they pay for. They wait a good year, or more, for a knee and given an ugly brace to wear for pain. They wait for everything and have to drive from one province to another for much needed surgery. It’s a nightmare, they know it, and if affordable they cross the border and pay. This is what was in store for us if Crooked Clinton had been elected! But the elites would be exempted.

    Single payer run by government is the MOST INEFFICIENT way to run a health care system due to all the incentives to “game the system.” We will not be well served to accept a single payer system, no matter how “convenient” it may sound to the feeble-minded and uninformed! Let’s pay out of our pocket for everything by using herbs, whole foods, supplements, etc. that don’t cost an arm and a leg so that we can circumvent all the graft and incompetency of our unnecessarily complicated system. Oh, but then Big Pharma won’t get to monopolize the wealth of the world. Oh, snap! GO NATURAL, SHEEPLE, and start taking your humanity back from the Globalists and their eugenics agenda (death panels, euthanasia, infanticide by abortion and vaccination, etc.)

    This article is misleading. In which province does a family of 4 pay $1,000 a month for health care? Which taxes are we paying for healthcare? We can walk into any hospital with a care card and get service at no charge. I think there needs to be some sources quoted. Yes, the wait can be as long as you say however as a senior I pay nothing for health insurance. Not on any drugs but I do think that prescriptions are less in Canada as well. Not sure that this is so bad that the US couldn’t take a look at it. Rather inflammatory and useless article that just stirs things up. Hmmm . . . still rather be here than there!
