Health funding

Re: « False Alarm On Heath Care, » Danielle Martin, letter to the editor, Aug. 19.

Dr. Danielle Martin, chair of Canadian Doctors for Medicare, writes that « user fees and privatization would increase health-care costs overall by downloading them from governments onto citizens. » Dr. Martin seems to believe governments are financed by Martians instead of taxpayers. Unfortunately, we must still be reminded medicare is not a magical cornucopia exempt from basic economic logic.
