I posted links to it yesterday, but they were as it looked going out directly to the Members and Senators. It was both the French and English versions. She has now got it front page on her website and that's even better. I sent my letter to all the Member at about 2PM. I hope they will have time to read it, as they won't have much of a meal break till after the vote. Guess it might be a close one. The latest I know is that the vote will happen at 6PM tonight, rain or shine. Keep sending her good thoughts.

Another epic failure for socialist health care. They won't pay for CCSVI and they won't even let you pay for it out-of-pocket with your own money.

A few weeks ago I needed to get an MRI of the cervical and thorasic spine. The Dr wrote the Rx on Monday. The following Monday I was in the machine getting the MRI. Try doing that in Canada. You could wait 6 months there.
My appointment was not scheduled on an emergency basis either. The Doc wrote the Rx and told me which facility to use. I called them and set up a mutually agreeable date. They could have done it sooner but I couldn't make it sooner.

Socialist programs typically work like this:
-The government enacts a program which provides free stuff paid for by taxpayers.
-The opportunity to get free stuff causes a surge in demand which drives up prices.
-Government may raise taxes to cover the increased costs, but when the taxpayers start screaming the government resorts to;
-wage and price controls
- That results in shortages as suppliers realize that the government mandated price does not cover their costs. So they stop providing the product.
-Then the government resorts to waiting lists,
-And then rationing which means you don't get your free stuff.

Old adage; free stuff is worth every penny.
