Now that the United States has universal health care, where will Canadian politicians go when they get sick?

Canada has had universal health care for a long time.

When Robert Bourassa, the premier of Quebec, Canada, needed cancer treatment, he came to the United States.

When Canadian Liberal MP Belinda Stronach needed cancer treatment, she also came to the United states.

When Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams needed heart surgery, he, too, came to the United States.

Now that the United States has universal health care, where will Canadian politicians go when they get sick?

    They will probably go to hell and they belong there. I was a Canadian once but i wouldn’t go back to it.

    When exactly did the United States get UNIVERSAL health care?! Will the government be sending enrollment forms in the mail? :-)

    Canadian politicians,like US politicians,will always have the very best health care available to them in spite of ObamaCare.It’s *ordinary* Americans who will deal with the waiting lists and the 10,000 other onerous restrictions and regulations of government health care.As for ordinary Canadians I certainly won’t want to see their presence in our hospitals make my waitring times longer so I’d support seeing them banned.That would close off the safety valve that has allowed their system to work better than it’s designed to work..

    Canada has its own universal health care. It just so happen that America has more effective health care methods than Canada.
