John Stossel, co-anchor of ABC's 20/20 compares ObamaCare to Canada's free health care system where patients wait months to be seen for treatment.

He points out that when American actress Natasha Richardson fell and hit her head on a ski slope outside Montreal earlier this year, the closest hospital with the scanning equipment needed to diagnose her brain injury was hundreds of miles away.

Sadly, there weren't any helicopters to fly her to a hospital because under Canada's free health system, there isn't enough money to buy these lifesaving, big ticket items.

So, like the Canadians who don't get access to timely medical attention - she died.

The same will happen to Americans if ObamaCare passes -- unless you're wealthy enough to be seen by a doctor right away.

Stossel exposes the truth behind Barack Obama's claims that his health care system will save money over the next 10 years. That is impossible. There simply aren't enough doctors, hospitals or funding to cover all 300 million Americans AND the 19 million illegal aliens already in this country that Obama wants to give amnesty to.

    I have to agree.. While Canada does have a free health care system it is plagued with issues... and I see nothing wrong with reform..but the public should be able to choose and there are other ways of reform..I do not agree with this type of reform.

    I did not read all of the story but when was it aired on 20/20 because John just retired and went over to Fox News.

    That is not why she passed...once the fall happened, she refused to go to the hospital and chose to go to her hotel to rest which was the mistake. Once the decision was made to seek treatment, it was too late as the damage was done...Goodness..I can't believe this was said..

    OK said i wld not post bout another Obama post by sandra but wen u wrong u wrong. dat is NOT why Natasha Richardson died or did not go to da hospital. SHE REFUSED CARE wen da ambulance came and suggested she go she said she was fine. Plus, she had enough money 2 charter her own plane which her husband did 2 get 2 her. While i do not agree wit everything about his hlth plan instead of knocking it i wish i could see more suggestions cuz WE all agree somthin has 2 b done.
