ndependently, the Sunlight Foundation estimated it cost $70 million to build the much-maligned website, not $634 million. (Officially, CGI was awarded a $93 million contract for the healthcare.gov job.)
And today in his Fact Checker column in the Washington Post, Glenn Kessler looked at the question of the healthcare.gov cost and concluded, "A conservative figure would be $70 million. A more modest figure would be $125 million to $150 million."
8. Publicly-funded programs will inevitably lead to rationed health care.
False. And bogglingly so. One of the things that constantly amazes me here is how well-cared-for the elderly and disabled you see on the streets here are. No, these people are not being thrown out on the curb. In fact, they live longer, healthier, and more productive lives because they're getting a constant level of care that ensures small things get treated before they become big problems.
9. People won't be responsible for their own health if they're not forced to pay.
False. The philosophical basis of America's privatized health care system might best be characterized as medical Calvinism: Health, like salvation, is entirely in our own hands. If you just have the character and self-discipline to stick to an abstemious regime of careful diet and clean living, you'll never get sick. Of course, this is bad theology whether you're applying it to the state of one's soul or one's arteries. The Canadian system reflects a very different philosophy. It's built on the belief that maintaining health is not an individual responsibility, but a collective one. Since none of us controls fate, the least we can do is be there for each other.
This difference is expressed in a few different ways. First: Canadians tend to think of tending to one's health as one of your duties as a citizen. You do what's right because you don't want to take up space in the system, or put that burden on your fellow taxpayers. Second, "taking care of yourself" has a slightly expanded definition here, which includes a greater emphasis on public health. Canadians are serious about not coming to work if you're contagious, and seeing a doctor ASAP if you need to. Staying healthy includes not only diet and exercise; but also avoiding stress and getting things treated while they're still small and cheap to fix.
Another typical liberal with his head in the sand. .............right, we are the 37 rated best health care in the world and rated number 1 in costs............i think you have your head somewhere else
