Still Believe In Government Healthcare? Canadian Premier comes to US for treatment

According to the National Post, "Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams is to have heart surgery in the United States later this week, a press conference this morning is expected to confirm. Media reports last night suggested the popular 59-year-old Premier has opted not to remain in his home province or country for the scheduled surgery, opting instead for treatment at a U.S. institution. The exact destination is not known.

"I can confirm that Premier Williams did leave the province this morning and will be undergoing heart surgery later this week," said Mr. Williams' spokeswoman, Elizabeth Matthews, in an email to the Canadian Press."

All I can say is the old saw actions speak louder than words applies here. We wish Mr. Williams a speedy and quick recovery. I wonder if Obama would send his family (or himself) members to Canada for treatment of an illness?
