Doctors Start Using Logic

Look beyond tax hikes to fund medicare: study

"If we raise the money privately, then obviously some people will have better access to care, quicker access to care than other people."— Dr. Irfan Dhalla

I've been saying that for years, it's nice health-care professionals are now using reason and logic to come to their conclusions. If Canadians aren't ready for complete privatization then perhaps the State should abolish the income tax and establish a Health-Care Tax. Make this tax voluntary and we're in the right direction toward a profit-and-loss enterprise.

But of course that's not going to happen anytime soon.


  1. voluntary taxes would never work. people would use our health care system and not pay for it. the whole thing would collapse

  2. Do you eat at McDonalds without paying? Do you leave Chapters with a bag full of books without making some kind of payment? The same goes for health-care. Voluntary taxes is just another way of saying "payment." Walk into a hospital, pay the money (or contact your insurance company) and I guarantee you that will fix a lot of our problems.

    Socialism has never worked.
