Another great video from Reason.TV on the true story of a Canadian woman who had to fly to Oklahoma City to get a hip replacement after she was denied care by health care bureaucrats up North:

But surely this could never happen in America. Obamacare isn't single-payer. And to argue that one of the unintended--er, intended--consequences of Obamacare would be a single-payer system, with the accompanying rationing of health care, down the road is just baseless scaremongering, right?

Only a demagogue would argue that we'd have to have a "difficult democratic conversation" about whether or not grandma would get her hip replaced.
