Yeah, Lewis is definitely an American national treasurer. He does such right on political commentary. He's a real "mensch".

Lewis was is my home town on April. That's in Canada, city of Regina, province of Saskatchewan. It was a great show, and after the show, he stuck around to sign autographs. That was nice.

Glad to see so much talk about health care on DU. I'm cautiously optimistic that you'll finally get some action. My favorite motto is "What we desire for ourselves, we wish for all", and one of my big wishes is to see all Americans get access to basic health care. Best wishes to everyone out there!

P.S.: Everybody should check out Canuckistanian's DU post: "Words you'll never hear in the Canadian health care system." That post is great for debunking the Repug myths about the Canadian system.

33. Bogus arguments.
"So 1 in 5 Canadians are gonna die from HC rationing. Liars pandering to fools"
Posted by bjobotts

And denying people coverage for treatment because they have pre-existing conditions, or because they can't afford insurance, or because the insurance company came up with some dumb-ass excuse to deny benefits - that doesn't count as HC rationing?

In Michael Moore's movie, "Sicko", one woman talked about being denied coverage for breast cancer treatment because the insurance company decided that she was too young to have cancer. That's pretty scary to me, because back in 1992, I found a lump in my breast. (I was 42 years old.) I am so lucky to be a Canadian. I got my exams, biopsy surgery, and testing without having to pay anything, and NO GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE. At no point did anybody have to phone any government or insurance company bureaucrat for approval for any test or procedure.

Good luck to all you folks out there fighting for health care reform!

24. Is Peggy Noonan suffering from dementia?

"When did we all start talking about health care?" :wtf: is up with that?

It's as if she has early on set Alzheimer's or something. If that's all she has to contribute why do the networks keep booking her? Every time I see her it's the same thing. When it's her turn to chime in she just goes off the wall on some totally trivial tangent.
