...are no better illustrated by the case of the Canadian man who was born blind and after 68 years of blindness is finally able to see because of an operation given to him under socialized medicine in Canada. What was that I just said - am I faulting socialized medicine for performing an operation on this man that allowed him to see the world for the first time in his 68 years of existence? You be I am doing just that.
You see, as reported:
"When Pierre-Paul Thomas was born blind 68 years ago, there was nothing medical science could do for him. Two years ago, the Montreal man fell down a flight of stairs, fracturing facial bones, including those around his eye sockets. During the recuperation process at Montreal General Hospital, plastic surgeon Lucie Lessard asked a casual question: "Do you want us to fix your eyes, too?" Two simple cataract removal operations later, Thomas could see." (Source: http://now.msn.com/pierre-paul-thomas-born-blind-86-years-ago-has-vision-restored-with-simple-cataract-operation.)
Did you get that, do you understand it. Help to resolve his blindness was not available 68 years ago but all it took were two "simple cataract removal operations" to grant him his sight. You can rest assured that cataract operations have been available for many years of those 68 years that he was blind. Why did no one in the socialist medical system of Canada ever ask him before his recent bone fracture injuries if he wanted to have an operation that would allow him to see. Treatment or lack of it, just like this, is what you can expect under Obama- care. Imagine, it took whatever period of time in those 68 years that they ran the medical system for the government to offer him the cure for his blindness. You see, cataract surgery has been performed since way back in ancient India and has been improved repeatedly up through current times, so it is not like the corrective surgery was unavailable. What a shame it took socialized medicine so long to offer him a cure and his vision.
