Dennis Kucinich takes on the Manhattan Institute

July 9, 2009 | By | 2 Replies More

What is the deal with single payor?  How does the United States compare to Canada on the ability to provide health care services?  Rep. Dennis Kucinich is showing his frustration with Dr. David Gratzer, Senior Fellow of the conservative Manhattan Institute.

Gratzer had it coming because he presented himself as an expert on the problems with the Canadian system. See here and here.

For a clear presentation of why we do need single payor insurance and why we can afford it, see this report by Marcia Angell, M. D., Senior Lecturer in Social Medicine Harvard Medical School.

    I find it odd that so many Canadians are involved in US politics.

  2. It's not odd at all. Canada's economy is inextricably linked to ours. One of the largest employers in Canada is Ford.

    And in many ways it is true—there wouldn't be a Canadian health care system without us.
