Elizabeth Edwards Shows How to Tell a Liar on Healthcare
By bluegal


In an interview with Rachel Maddow, Elizabeth Edwards dropped this enormously helpful key on when to tell if an opponent to healthcare reform is lying:

Let me say to the American public: if you hear somebody saying, we can't afford healthcare reform, because...if they use any of these words: "socialization," or "government control of your healthcare decisions," or if they mention "England," "France," or "Canada," you can be assured that they are not telling you the truth. They are trying to scare you away from a plan that can make a real difference, not just in American families, but in the American economy as a whole.

Our friends at Sadly, No! take a look at the actual outcomes between the US and Canada. I don't think it will surprise you to see that the U.S. system doesn't measure up so well:

Circulatory disease deaths per 100,000:

•Canada: 219
•United States: 265
Child maltreatment deaths per 100,000:

•Canada: 0.7
•United States: 2.2
Digestive disease deaths per 100,000:

•Canada: 17.4
•United States: 20.5
Infant mortality rate per 1,000 live births

•Canada: 5.08
•United States: 6.3
Intestinal diseases death rate

•Canada: 0.3%
•United States: 7.3%
Proability of not reaching age 60:

•Canada: 9.5%
•United States: 12.8%

  • Those statistics dont show me anything related to failed healthcare rather they show casualties due to lifestyle choices.

  • When she's still alive 5 years from now, do you suppose she'll ever be asked who she beat her "terminal cancer"? The woman has had "terminal cancer" for 8 years now.

    • We get it, it's called Massachussetts and Tennessee failed unviersal healthcare, which is already bankrupt. In addition, it's called medical and medicaid, which is also bankrupt, all of the above are controlled by the government. Furthermore, we also get that 50 million Americans don't have access to health insurance, but half of those are illegal aliens. Illegal aliens don't pay taxes.

  • Those stats are ridiculous. They mean nothing about the quality of care.
