Hahahaha...... I really find


I really find it hard to believe there is no health facility in the US that is as good as the one in Canada. But, oh well.

I thought you had to wait forever to get health services in Canada. Don't they have "socialized" medicine?!?!? It's wicked.

"“With regard to the idea whether or not you have a right to health care ... It means you believe in slavery," Paul said in 2011. "

This is not that.

He's going to a hospital that's supposed to be one of the best in the world for non-mesh hernia repairs. It's not hard to believe that Paul, who also cuts people open so he can fix 'em, and who is well-connected otherwise, knows how to evaluate a hospital.

It's also a private hospital that existed before Canada nationalized healthcare (yes, Virginia, they have those in Canada), at which the Senator, because he comes from here and not from there, will be paying full freight.

Such a non-story story.

You, and others similarly disposed, make it sound like Paul is repudiating his vows or something. As if by having surgery in the US, he'd be participating in an actual free market, notwithstanding the fact that he's paying cash in Canada.

Trump's superpower evidently is to make an awful lot of progressives think poorly and behave like selectively puritanical idiot children. It's probably the most amazing thing about his presidency.

The irony of your position is

The sad irony of your position is that the US spends roughly twice more per capita than Canada on health care, yet according to a doctor who opposes affordable health care and universal insurance they have better health care for half the cost.

I would say you just validated my position, but it's possible you retired your thought process during W's administration.
