The stark difference between American and Canadian medical care

In the US, doctors fight to keep patients alive, to the point of a nationwide manhunt to bring a 13 year old boy with cancer and his mother back to Minnesota for radiation treatment.  The two fled because they wanted less medical care.

In Canada, doctors are fighting to let a 13 month old boy die, to the point of getting a court order to overrule the family's attempts at keeping the child alive.  The family is trying to get legal permission to flee the country to get medical care in the US instead.

Anyone who still believes that Obamacare wont lead to medical rationing is not facing reality.
