No Choice, Never, Ever....We're the NDP

Nice to see Jack Layton returning to the bedrock of state coercion:
Layton said he would amend the Canada Health Act to prohibit public money from going to new private, for-profit hospitals. He said MRI services would be included in the definition of medicare and protected from privatization.

"Canadians have said clearly they want to strengthen public health care with innovation, not privatization like we've seen in B.C. and Alberta," Layton said.

Wouldn't want the middle class to do what the rich do by flying to New York or Miami or Palm Desert. And imagine the cheek of private sector folks who think they can deliver health care for less than in public hospitals and want to pass the savings on to the "single payer". It is, unless Layton is immediately elected, the end of life as we know it.
