Donald Trump has committed far more egregious outrages than attacking the Canadian health care system.
In case you missed it in the welter of ugly and vicious slurs, during last Sunday’s presidential debate the New York billionaire-who-is-proud-of-paying-no-income-tax accused Hillary Clinton of wanting to institute a Canadian-style, single payer health care system.
The Canadian system, the real estate developer claimed, engenders long wait times and causes a great many Canadians to seek treatment in the United States.
The accusation against Clinton is entirely false. It is Bernie Sanders who advocates something resembling the Canadian system, not Ms. Clinton, who argued vigorously during the primaries that Sanders’ idea was, in essence, pie-in-the sky.
