From last week’s NPR program:
A segment entitled “Blame Canada,” with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Maureen Taylor explaining what health care is really like north of the border. Excerpt:
MIKE PESCA: What do Canadians make of how their health care system is being portrayed in the U.S. these days?
MAUREEN TAYLOR: I think we’re actually saddened that you could use something that we find works so well, the Canadian health care system, to scare Americans into voting this down and being afraid to move forward with this.
And a segment called “The language of reform” with Frank Luntz, author and Republican wordsmith, who wrote a memo called “The Language of Healthcare 2009.” He says his ten rules will help Republicans stop the “Washington takeover” of health care.
