Health Care, Limited
What's wrong with privatizing health care? Plenty.

Its conclusion? "Medicare can either be preserved or privatized. It can't be both."
Released just a few days before the scheduled election debates between the federal party leaders, the CCPA report contains facts and figures on the privatization of Medicare that underline its importance as a key election issue.
