Today, on January 1, 2012, she warns that the Canadian Prime Minister is at war with old people. She claims that he doesnt want to fund their health care.
Well, I like old people. Most of my relatives are old and I am happy when the government spends lots of money to help them.
However, I can see that most people over 80 do not lead happy lives. They are broken down. Their health is failing, their friends and spouses have died and they have to depend on other people to care for them.
Also, anyone can see that health costs are growing and a great deal of the health budget is spent on keeping old people alive but not really healthy.
So, we are spending a lot of money to keep people who have a short future alive but not healthy.
I'd love to know Heather's solution to this whacky situation but she doesnt offer one here.
