Health Care Charlatan

Posted on Monday, June 28 at 16:02 by drcaleb
As Finance Minister, Paul Martin gutted a whopping $25 billion from health care and cut transfers to the provinces. As a result, waiting times increased by 77% between 1992 and 2002. Now Paul Martin is claiming that only he, the one who cut health care in the first place, can save our ailing system. If health care was so important to him, then why didn't he increase funding for it in his recent budget? Also, if this is his number one priority, why has he pledged substantially less money to address the problems with our health care system than Stephen Harper's Conservatives and Jack Layton's NDP?
