The day started off pretty good. I woke up without a headache, and then just a few hours later, it came back. I had lots of things I had to do today, but I didn’t get a chance to get them done.
Don’t you find it completely ironic that a Canadian government official, Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams, has chosen to come to the United States to have heart surgery.
Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams will undergo heart surgery later this week in the United States.
Deputy premier Kathy Dunderdale confirmed the treatment at a news conference Tuesday, but would not reveal the location of the operation or how it would be paid for.
“He has gone to a renowned expert in the procedure that he needs to have done,” said Ms. Dunderdale, who will become acting premier while Mr. Williams is away for three to 12 weeks.
“In consultation with his own doctors, he’s decided to go that route.”
Did you catch that last line? After consultation with his Canadian doctors, he decided to travel to the United States to have the procedure done. The article goes on to state that staying in Canada was “never an option offered to him”.
Exactly what would Mr. Williams have done if the United States was already subject to ObamaCare? That’s right, you never would have heard this story, because Mr. Williams wouldn’t have had the option to come here and most likely would have died before you even learned who he was.
Good luck with your surgery, Mr. Williams. While here in the United States you will have access to the finest medical facilities, the best medical technology, and some of the most experienced doctors you could ever find.
We won’t forget that it was your government-run, universal health care system that helped you find your way to our border, our doctors, and our health care system.
