Saskatchewan Party Simply Recycles Same Old Health Care Promises ... Over and Over and Over ...

A little over two years ago, the Saskatchewan Party promised major changes in Health Care that would radically reduce hospital waiting times. The people of Saskatchewan decided that they would give them a chance and elected the Brad Wall government.

“At the same time, a Saskatchewan Party government will focus our health care dollars and resources on reducing waiting lists and make sure Saskatchewan people get the health care they need when they need it.”

Two years later, nothing has been ventured nor accomplished in their campaign promise. Thinking that enough time has elapsed and hoping that Saskatchewan citizens have short memories, the Wall government has dragged out the exact same promise in yesterdays Throne Speech:

"Now, is time to set another ambitious goal in Health care.
For many years, there has been a surgical backlog in Saskatchewan.
This has created unacceptably long wait times for Saskatchewan patients.
My government recently received the final report of the 'Patient
First Review;, and during this session, we will outline our
response to he recommendations of this report.
As a result of the excellent work of Mr. Tony Dagnone, and in
response to he unacceptable surgical backlog, my government
has set a bold, new goal.
Over the next four years, we will reduce surgical wait times in
to no longer than three months.
The plan to achieve this goal will be outlined during this

Shhhh.... US Repuglicans will love this!
