The parameters of a debate

Liberal MP Keith Martin sets out his do’s and don’ts of health care reform.

Don’t allow people to pay to jump ahead of the queue in the public system. Don’t allow people to divert taxes to private services. Everyone will pay taxes and ALL will have access to the public system. This is akin to our education system that has private and public schools. People who pay tuition for their children to attend private schools still pay taxes that pay for public schools….

Do allow people to pay for health care services in completely separate private clinics. ONLY private monies would pay for these clinics and services.
