Jeffrey Simpson - Shill

 This stupidity has been Jeffrey Simpson's shtick for years and years:
One of the most comforting, yet debilitating, mythologies in Canada holds that we have the best health-care system in the world, or at least among the best.
Canadians desperately want to believe this assertion; hence its mythological status. Politicians have repeated the myth endlessly. The Romanow commission a decade ago stated, “Canada’s health system compares well with those of other wealthy industrialized countries.” Would that it were true then, or now.
Is he stupid or corrupt? Fucking idiot. Big surprise, neoliberal politicians (no doubt partially influenced by Simpson's decade-after-decade harping on the subject in "Canada's national newspaper") slash spending on health care and service declines.

Remember, when these assholes talk about "reforming" health care, they'll mention European policies once in a while, but the reality will be American health insurance companies moving north to exploit and gouge and abuse us.

Thankfully, it's looking like it will take so long that Jeffrey Simpson will have gone on to his final reward by the time it happens and will therefore be unable to reap whatever payments he might have hoped to receive for his services to those parasites.
