Ardent foe of socialized medicine Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is planning to undergo hernia surgery this month in Canada, where medical care is publicly funded and universally provided. Paul, who is not covered by the Canadian health care system, will pay out of pocket for the operation, an aide told Politico. The surgery is set to take place at Shouldice Hernia Hospital in Ontario, a "world renowned hospital," the senator's spokeswoman Kelsey Cooper said.

Third post on this lol. It's a private, for-profit hospital. It's allowed to exist because rich Canadians aren't going to wait in line with the masses.

Totally did not see the other posts and I looked. Yep private and for-profit IN CANADA where you know they have crap doctors because of socialism and does most of it's work for the state. Why would you go to Canada at all if they have such a terrible healthcare system?

You don't use the system the plebes have to. You use the one for rich people. It's not rocket surgery.

Wouldn't it be funny if he were added to the TSA no-fly list while up north? That would be TV worth viewing...
