@JeanCharest_ .The biggest myth about Cdn healthcare is that we spend more than other countries. Cdns think we spend 3 times more on #healthcare than we actually do. Our health care expenditures are in line with like countries - about 10% of GDP (except the US which spends much more) #cdnpoli Image
@JeanCharest_ However, other countries are likely getting more value for the dollar ...especially the ones which have a larger percentage of public healthcare. More public healthcare=less expensive healthcare #cdnpoli #onpoli… 2/ Image
@JeanCharest_ Canada can certainly improve on its healthcare performance relative to other countries but it does provide much better healthcare overall than the US (which also has the most expensive healthcare)… 3/ Image

Today @SoniaFurstenau called on Minister of Health @AdrianDix to release the Medical Services Commission's report on Telus Health’s private, fee-based #healthcare programs.

Which are accused of allowing queue-jumping, and contributing to a two-tier healthcare system. 1/ #bcpoli
Almost a million British Columbians go without a #familydoctor and the numbers increase as family doctors close their practices and move to for-profit healthcare providers who lock their services behind a paywall. 2/ #bcpoli #healthcare
We must protect our public #healthcare system from the encroachment of for-profit interests.

When @AdrianDix and the @bcndp were in opposition, they advocated fiercely for this position.

But in gov't we have not seen that same conviction in action. 3/ #bcpoli #familydoctor

As we travel BC for part of our summer healthcare tour, we are talking to #healthcare professionals and gathering knowledge about the challenges facing them. 1/ #MentalHealth #bcpoli
This week, we will be sharing some of their stories to raise awareness of the magnitude of the issues within our system and share the solutions we need to combat this #healthcare crisis. 2/ #bcpoli
The solutions to our #healthcare crisis are in front of us, the doctors, nurses and staff who care for us each day know what needs to be done and we need a gov't willing to listen to them. 3/ #bcpoli

“In fact, not only does the [Inflation Reduction Act] harm #healthcare - it funnels money toward the two entities that are currently the biggest problems in healthcare – Pharmacy Benefit Managers and insurers.”

Another amazing piece from @mass_marion
“The proposal claims to give the government the ability to ‘negotiate’ drug prices in the Medicare space…That isn’t negotiation – that is price fixing. And, with the US already experiencing over 200 medication and solution shortages price fixing will only make things worse”
“If politicians were actually paying attention to the market, they could see why [drug prices are high] - middlemen.

Instead, the current proposal actually finds a way to give these market leaches more money – and for that matter even more leverage over my patients.”

Today's FAO report is clear: Doug Ford is underspending on #Healthcare.

At a time when ERs across the province are closing due to staffing shortages, this is unacceptable.

I ask the Premier: If keeping emergency rooms open doesn’t warrant spending – what does? 1/

It’s inexcusable to underspend on #healthcare while nurses & other healthcare workers are burnt out.

This failure to act is costing Ontarians.

Doug Ford needs to invest in the ppl who provide care, starting with #Bill124 and repealing it. /2

I met with a family doc in Guelph this morning. Her story is a system on the brink of collapse. She is referring seriously ill patients to specialists & they are waiting months as their conditions get worse. She’s forced to provide mental healthcare she’s not trained to provide.

On this day celebrating 🇺🇸 independence, 🧵about another kind of "taxation without representation" & how community leaders are ending Wall St's (& their water carriers) colonization of our communities. And, how #web3 can turbocharge return of health sovereignty. ImageImage
First some background: @JoshuaRosenthal said nations are "imagined communities instantiated by currency and contracts." [PSA: If you are into history, check out Josh's thoughts on how today's situation has remarkable parallels with the Renaissance ]
In #healthcare, state/federal laws matter but the real "laws of the land" are the legal docs that underpin health plans. Regulatory capture* is real but "contractual capture" is at heart of 🇺🇸's hc dysfunction

@NPR is doing its annual reading and tweeting of the #DeclarationOfIndependence. 246 years ago a group of men felt it so important that they risked everything to defy a King & start a path for a democratic republic. Today we’re seeing those values attacked by the stolen #SCOTUS
The #AntiDemocraticParty of the GOP passing laws & ideas to circumnavigate the will of #Americans. On this #IndependenceDay2022, it is time to not celebrate what happened 246 years ago, but to honor it by standing up for our #FellowAmericans ensuring that #Rights and #Freedoms
Are actually for all of us. #Autonomy is a #Right. Not being shot because you look dangerous or are frightened or just went to school #Right. Loving yourself & having your ability to have your own family is a #Right. #Healthcare is a #HumanRight (#AbortionIsHealthcare)

"... it points to an important lesson for the United States as it vies with #China for influence across the Pacific: you have got to show up. And the United States has not."… #SolomonIslands #diplomacy
1/ "We get it. The #SolomonIslands is small, remote and economically insignificant. But if all countries like us are dismissed as such, China will pick us off one by one with its promises of business projects and development aid."
2/ "There is a creeping sense today that we are being ignored, if not forgotten. So who can blame us if we open the door to new friends who can help with our needs?

And those needs are great."

For the first time in my life I felt unsafe doing #GOTV & got personally targeted & my photo posted on a QAnon type site.

More appalling was how many on #healthcare & #academia, if you are connected on social media like FB, are pro-violence & anti-rule of law & support J6.
If you are a Black, immigrant, LGBTQ, chronic illness, Muslim, etc person, patient, #HCW, teacher, heck yeah, is scary

Thing is those who have been safely tucked in cocoon of suburbia, worried about junior making the cut for the bball team
now feels suddenly scary

Us: not new
We *need* the ppl who typically enjoy more safety to step up. It feels “ick” to report, like you are an informant in Nazi Germany or something, but it is opposite: being “nice” & “not controversial” & “let’s all get along”

Core #CPI (excluding those volatile #food and #energy components) came in at 0.6% month-over-month and rose 6.0% year-over-year.
Meanwhile, headline #CPI data printed at a very strong 1.0% month-over-month and came in at 8.6% year-over-year, spiking higher on #shelter, #gas and food costs.
These persistently outsized gains in #inflation are clearly having an impact on business and #ConsumerConfidence. Also, the #Fed’s favored measure of inflation, core #PCE, increased 0.34% in April, bringing the year-over-year figure for the measure to 4.9%, as of that month.

🚨The #SocialSecurity and #Medicare Trustees released their annual reports on the state of the trust funds today, finding that #Medicare HI will be insolvent by 2028 and theoretically combined #SocialSecurity by 2035.

The following is a statement from @MayaMacGuineas:
"#SocialSecurity is only 13 years from insolvency and #Medicare is only 6 years. Policymakers need to get their heads out of the sand and stop pretending these vital programs’ funding issues will fix themselves."….
"Today’s youngest retirees will be 68 years old when #Medicare runs out of reserves and 75 years old when #SocialSecurity becomes insolvent. Workers under the age of 55 will retire into an insolvent system."

We have been raising this issue in the Legislature since February.

Two-tiered healthcare goes against the fundamental principles of the Canadian health system. 1/ #bcpoli #cdnpoli #healthcare #BCHealth…
People are being asked to pay $4000+ for “premier” services like full annual check-ups, diagnostics, physiotherapists, and dietitians with Telus Health. This government is allowing healthcare delivery to be corporatized. 2/ #bcpoli #healthcare #BCHealth
When I asked @adriandix about people paying out of pocket for diagnostic services and preventative screenings, he said it’s fine, and that they are “non-medically necessary services, beyond the healthcare system”. 3/ #bcpoli #healthcare #BCHealth

The only thing the @bcndp loves more than blaming others for their problems is patting themselves on the back.

With overlapping crises facing BC we keep getting recycled announcements of capital projects, while many sit empty with no staff. 1/ #bcpoli #BCHealth #healthcare
The @bcndp loves to talk about its capital budget, but when it comes to operations, we see big problems. Child care centres w/ no ECEs. Schools scrambling for teachers & EAs.

Our crumbling #healthcare system lacking the doctors and nurses who do the actual care. 2/ #bcpoli #bced
Urgent and Primary Care Centres in Kamloops are only offering appointments 14 days from now.

Emergency departments in Chetwynd, Clearwater, & Port McNeil were closed this weekend due to staff shortages, and where they were open, people were waiting hours to be seen. 3/ #bcpoli
