Health Insurance Needs Choice

Check out the Canadian Taxpayers Federation's website at www.taxpayer.com. There is a great new column advocated choice for health insurance.

Here's a little sample:

  • Imagine if the Canadian government opened a chain of grocery stores and outlawed any competition. The government, through its monopoly, would dictate the types of goods and services sold and the price. For food, Canadians would be completely at the mercy of their government. Imagine further, if some Canadians, lucky enough to live near the border, had money and/or connections could “cross-border-shop.” Canadians would rightly be outraged and demand greater choice if such a scenario were to take place. So why are Canadians not outraged over their government’s monopoly on health insurance?
