Socialism-Hating GOP Sen. Rand Paul Going To Canada For Hernia Surgery: Report
Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who has attacked the Canadian health care system, is reportedly going to Canada for hernia surgery.
The Louisville Courier Journal reports that Paul, who has has compared Canadian-style single-payer health care systems to “slavery,” is scheduled to have his operation at the Shouldice Hernia Hospital in Thornhill, Ontario, Canada, per documents filed in Paul’s lawsuit against a neighbor who attacked him in 2018 and left him with six broken ribs and a bruised lung.
Paul, a former ophthalmologist, dramatically attacked the single player system in 2011:
With regard to the idea whether or not you have a right to health care… It means you believe in slavery. You are going to enslave not only me but the janitor at my hospital, the person who cleans my office, the assistants, the nurses… you are basically saying you believe in slavery.
