Tammy, Well said. I am appalled by our government and their actions. Praying for our country. Marla
Well said. I, too am shocked at how far our country has gone...
I can only echo Marla and Brittany's comments. Thank you for posting this gentle reminder. Hugs.
You are right, Tammy. I pray that the best decision really was made. We have a Universal care system in Canada. Everyone is treated regardless of income or health history, but, there is a LONG, LONG waiting time for each and every procedure. That is the bad thing about Universal healthcare. Folks here who have the money will go to the US to have MRI's or CAT scans for instance because they can get an appointment immediately. They will wait several months for it here. I needed back surgery five years ago and it took twelve whole months before the procedure could be done. It took six months just to see the specialist. There are definitely downsides to it.
I live in Canada too, and I'm very thankful for the fact that we have medical care and we don't have to go into debt over it. However like Cindy said, the downside is that there can be long waits. After my son was born I waited 5 months for an MRI to see whether I had MS or not. It was the longest 5 months of my life. I developed an anxiety disorder during that time! And thankfully I did not have MS or anything serious but the waiting was awful.
Cindy and Wendy,The waiting does sound terrible. What happens when it's serious and you need care right away? Unfortunately, I do not think our country can afford to do what they're proposing. With my hubby being in the medical field, this hits close to home and needless to say, we are not happy about it. Just praying and trusting God.
You. Go. Girl. :-)
I am going to have to look into this issue a bit more I think. Quite a few bloggers have been mentioning this. It has had some coverage over here but mainly because Pres. Obama canceled his trip here to deal with it. It sounds like he wants to do the same things we do here...Better go and read up!Best wishes,Natasha.
i completely agree, but hopefully SOME of them prayed before they voted at least....i'm just sayin'hugs
