    Just to note for reference, I am on board for the magic money fairy. It's our secret weapon against the rest of the world. The King Midas of economics, if you will.

    I dunno, I'm pretty sure I've seen other countries cutting health care.

    Well to be fair, Canada hasn't really experienced much of any recession.
    In the future, it may not be so rosy.

    The aggregate of OECD nations have cut spending on medical care.

    Well if you look at med students one must understand where the tuition goes and how it works. For 2 years you do course work or classes (there is little you can do to reduce the cost there). But then the 2nd two years you work in hospitals. Let me say that again, for the second two years you WORK in hospitals. And pay to work. Now my wife is med student, she is in her 4th year. She is currently working 75-80 hours a week, doing all the same functions of a resident (who make approx $45-50,000 a year) and we pay $40,800 in tuition alone to allow her the privilege to do this. Now I'm not saying charge her nothing, but those hospitals who are getting free labor should subsidize some of the cost... Even if it were half it would have saved my wife and I $40,800 in debt plus 6.8% interest. That would save us approx $57,000 over the 10 year period of paying back the loans.
    The issue there is insurance.


    it's that whole, illusion of safety thing, again.

    One should note that canada is a massive country, that is only heavily populated is small areas...the rest....pretty sparse. In essence, it's like a SMALL country, but with HUGE resources.

    The Conservatives said they would cut healthcare and their popularity was in freefall till they said it was a mistake and they promised not to. Cutting healthcare is practically throwing you and your party out of a really high window.

    Not sure what you mean about insurance, hospitals have to have insurance as students are working there already....

    So this does not increase the amount of insurance any hospital would need...

    But a hospital is able to see more patients when students are there, largely because they make students do the grunt work, making the doctors work more efficient, and requiring less staff in terms of nurses or residents... All I'm saying is tuition for medical school should go down during this period, as hospitals are able to make more money while students work for them.

    Well, it's one of the, if not the biggest budget item for most developed nations.
    It's always going to have a bulls eye on it for cuts in hard times.
