Kelly McCutchen of the Georgia Public Policy Foundation wrote an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Michael Moore’s “Sicko.” She cites some numbers from both Canada’s and Britton’s socialized health care systems.

“In the real world, tragedy isn’t limited to the United States. In 2005, the Canadian Supreme Court struck down Quebec’s ban on private health insurance for services already covered under their national health care program based on evidence that many people were dying while waiting for treatment in the public system.

“In Britain, long delays for colon cancer treatment result in 20 percent of the cases becoming incurable during the wait, according to an academic study cited in the Guardian newspaper.”
