Founder Of North American Surgery Invited To Testify To Committees Of Republic & Democratic Congressmen
Rick Baker, founder of North American Surgery, Inc. has been invited by â€śConservatives for Patientâ€™s Rightsâ€ť FacesOfGovernmentHealthCare.com to travel to Washington, D.C. on June 3rd, 2009 to testify to committees of Republican & Democratic congressmen. In their rush to implement a national healthcare policy, the U.S. government is proposing a single payer system similar to Canadaâ€™s. A single payer system (Canada and North Korea are the only current examples) has never been shown to work. Indeed, the close to 900,000 Canadians currently waiting in long queues for medical care, are testament themselves, to the dysfunctionality of the single payer system.
Baker will tell the U.S. lawmakers that should they adopt the Canadian single payer model, more Canadians than ever will inevitably die while waiting for care. At present, Timely Medical Alternatives is able to triage patients to sources of immediate care in the U.S. (Canadaâ€™s other healthcare system). â€śIf the U.S. adopts the Canadian systemâ€ť states Baker â€ś where will we send our clients who are in need of life saving surgery?â€ť
In addition to addressing the congressional committees, Baker will speak at a press briefing at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
