Mr. Speaker, the Canadian Premier of Newfoundland, Danny Williams, snuck into the United States recently for some stealth healthcare. Now, why would the Canadian Premier come to the United States for heart surgery?

Because his life depended on it.

"My heart, my choice, my health" he proclaimed. When it came down to it, he didn't trust his life to Canada's government-run healthcare system. Imagine that.

The Canadian Premier said after the very successful American heart surgery, "I did not sign away my right to get the best possible healthcare for myself when I entered politics."

The American people have said they don't want to be forced into signing their lives away with government-run healthcare either. When life and death decisions are put in the hands of government bureaucrats, it's unhealthy for everybody.

Just ask the Canadian Premier. When it came down to a matter of his own life or death decision, the Canadian Premier chose private healthcare and American heart surgeons over the Canadian nationalized system.

Sounds like "private healthcare for me, but not for thee."

And that's just the way it is.
