Canadian Premier Passes Up National Health Service for a Miami Hospital

aniel E. "Danny" Williams is the premier of Newfoundland and Labrador
, and while his party is regarded as "centrist" by Canadian standards, during the 2008 Canadian federal election he led what he termed the "ABC Campaign"(Anything But Conservative) in his province, in opposition to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Last year the 60-year-old Williams was diagnosed with a heart murmur, and in December his doctors told him the problem had become severe and cautioned that unless his heart valve was repaired immediately, he risked heart failure.

And where do you think a Canadian provincial leader goes to get urgent heart surgery?

To the world-class national health service that Obamunists point to as a model for the United States? Not in your life!

Saying "this was my heart, my choice and my health," the premier headed straight to Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami, where cardiac surgeon Dr. Joseph Lamelas has successfully performed the needed procedure.

The liberals are all alike, aren't they? Socialized medicine for you, but not for their hearts. No D.C. Scholarship program to help someone else's kids escape the hell that is District of Columbia Public School System, but Sidwell Friends Academy for their children.
