A common reason statists utilize when advocating for the imposition of a universal healthcare system is the inequality of healthcare outcomes across socioeconomic groups. An August 03, 2010 foxnews.com article titled "In Canada, Money May Matter for Cancer Survival" suggests, however, to the chagrin of the pro-aggression crowd, that a universal healthcare system, which provides equal access to cancer screening and treatment, does not deliver equivalent cancer outcomes. The Canadian study reviewed in the article, published in the journal Cancer, found that "survival does vary across socioeconomic groups," regardless of equal access to cancer screening and treatment. Why? The statist doctors quoted in the article are unable to provide an adequate answer. It's "complicated" one so-called expert in the article says. Really? That's the best answer the statists can give? How pathetic.
