Canada to Cut Back Single Payer?

It looks like the rough economy may be showing that the broad entitlement programs north of the border are not working-- just in time for the United States to spend all of that money on the ObamaCare plan. Looks like an argument against a cradle to grave welfare system:

British Columbia is replacing block grants to hospitals with fee-for-procedure payments and Quebec has a new flat health tax and a proposal for payments on each medical visit -- an idea that critics say is an illegal user fee.

And a few provinces are also experimenting with private funding for procedures such as hip, knee and cataract surgery.

Let's quit whining and fix the system we have and not implement a new boondoggle.
