Health care note...

Everybody's all atwitter about the Canadian Supreme Court's ruling that it is unconstitutional for Canadians not to be allowed private insurance and health care.
This pronouncement is supposed to be sending a message to anyone in the US that national health care plans are a failure. I'm afraid I fail to see the connection.
Did anybody really think any scheme for American National Health Care would not have a diamond-encrusted safety net for rich people and their doctors?
Politics just don't work like that. Anyone see Titanic? Check the distribution of survivors against class distribution.
Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.
