Editor's Note: Canadians chastised American Morning on Thursday for misrepresenting their health care system and reporting it in a negative context. Most believed that any American would be pleased with such health care.
- Carolina: Jim Acosta's report on health care – Please DO NOT keep referring to Canada as a negative health care system. It works VERY well here. Please come to Canada and interview people, educate your own people on how well this system works. All I can say is Canada is not in the mess that the US is in and we can take care of the health of our people – how is it working for you guys????
- Edward: John, I watched your bit on the health care fight in the us. I find it funny how the one side keeps threatening that your heading toward a Canadian system and that’s just so bad. John, I remember watching you up here on city TV so you should know how our system here in Canada is. Why don’t you do a bit comparing our two countries healthcare systems because the average American doesn’t have a clue. I would bet most Americans would love to have Canadian healthcare. Thanks a Canadian fan...
How would you feel if you had the same health care coverage as is available in Canada? Do you believe their system of coverage is appropriate for U.S. citizens? What would ideal universal heath care look like to you?
Regarding FAA whistle-blowers, some wondered why the head of the agency had not been charged with manslaughter for dereliction of duty. Others suggested that few acted as whistle-blowers because of the fear of reprisal.
- Feebe: The problem with complaining or filling a safety issue to the FAA is the paper work. No one wants to put a name on their work if the paper work is going to slap them in the face or even worse lose their two bit job that pays them good. This could be said for a lot of jobs of this type.
- John: I would like to know why the Head of the FAA hasn't been charged with manslaughter. After all it was his decision to over look safety problems that inspectors seen and he just brushed them under the carpet. I really wish we adopted China's rules and take people like him out and eliminate greed from this earth.
What do you think about whistle-blowers? Are there enough laws to protect people when they speak out about such issues as those at the FAA?
