Healthcare, debunked

Kevin quotes John Stossell heavily in this post. RTWT. Any journalist who understands the TANSTAAFL approach to healthcare and government policies can't be all bad.
As others have noted, in 2005 (the most recent data I've been able to find) Canada had 5.5 MRI scanners per million population, and 11.3 CAT scan machines per million. The U.S. had at that time 27 and 32 per million population, respectively. Canada's are still backed up for months. Here you can get an elective "heart-saver" CT scan for about $100, usually within a couple of days of calling to make the appointment.

Greedy bastards.
