Engage Canada lies about Harper's health care "cuts"

Marissa SemkiwRebel Commentator

In 2004, Paul Martin brought in a $41-billion dollar health accord, which promised 6% annual increases to Federal health care transfers to the provinces for the next 10 years.  

Among the many problems with this plan is that an indefinite 6% annual increase is unsustainable.

That's why, now that the ten years are up, Harper's Conservatives have tied these transfers to economic growth instead, with a minimum annual increase of 3%.

The far left group Engage Canada is running commercials calling this a "cut."

I explain why that's wrong.

In Canada the term “Health Care” has become an oxymoron. I believe the main problem is not lack of funding, it is how the funds are being used. History has shown time and again that the lefty, chuck more money at it approach, has never been a solution.

To be fair to my fellow Canadians, the big hoax being played by the MSM and the Marxists is having an effect on their captive audience. Most Canadians would be horrified if they actually sought the truth themselves, instead of accepting the continuous brain washing tricks that are being perpetrated on our society, by the education system, to the judiciary and the MSM Marxists.

So it’s a cut “in planned spending” they say. What crapola! Paul Martin made the deal for 10 years. The 10 years is up. Any spending after the original 10 year agreement was not “planned”. In fact, Health Care transfers are being maintained at a 3% minimum rate of increase. That, in a difficult economic climate is a new “plan” and not a bad one either. Now all we have to do is get the provinces (like Ontario) to stop pissing billions away on unneeded solar and useless wind power and political wastage like gas plant scandals and we would be flush with more money for health care. This is complicated? Not.

Is anybody surprised by the lies perpetrated by the left wing supporters? I for one, am not. Imagine those who for their entire life have given credence to the idea that the health care in this country was free, waking up one day to the realization that their pay stubs showed how much they paid for the abysmal failure so called ‘free heath care’.

How about assisted suicide for politicians to take the drain off Medicare

There seems to be no way to hold to account those on the left that lie. And many Canadians either do not pay attention to what is and what is not a lie, but simply believe what the liars tell them, what can be done to educate Canadians of the truth?

The left will continue to lie so long as there is no consequences. When morality is not based in a solid foundation, as it appears to be with a substantial portion of the left, what defines a lie becomes a fluid concept based upon changing circumstances. A society cannot function in that manner for long.

I can’t add anything to that, Marissa Semkiw – good job!!!!

I have lost faith in most Canadians to even think straight – seems they are becoming even more entitled and less accountable.

Out of this discussion.

ohhhh…..I’m going to puke before this election is ever over. I don’t trust my fellow countrymen and women NOT to vote for socialism/communism because of the lies they fall for from big unions, ndp, libs, mainstream media, ie: the left. All Timmy and Justin do is anti-Harper rhetoric. I think they’re incapable of anything else. That would bode so well for running a country…..not. But the left is so arrogant, they don’t think things like that through.

“Line up and die” healthcare remains firmly in place. Gubermint healthcare is a unionized wet dream that continues to fail.

Private sector creates innovation. Big fat socialist/communist goobermint pigs like paul martin just spend OPM – (other people’s money).

So let’s see how stupid Canadians are – you vote a communist pig into the PMO and you get a 25% HST – presto, just like that.
