Bill Maher hosted Jim Carrey. It’s hard to tell, which one is ‘dumb’ and which one is ‘dumber’?
This angry Canuck was once the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. Now he wants the REST of us to embrace full Socialism.
‘Eat the rich’ is a strange position for the uber-wealthy comic and actor to endorse — unless he really means everyone ELSE should pay it.
If he thinks the government is better at spending than any one individual person is, and if he thinks that bigger government is the cure for what ails this world, he can stop wasting his money on drugs and hookers and fill in that little box on the tax return that says how much extra money you plan to give to the IRS.
With your commitment to Socialism and opposition to Income Inequality, we should expect that voluntary tax overpayment to go DEEP into eight figures.
Right? Nah, you still want YOUR mansion in YOUR gated community, you just want everyone ELSE to take on the burden of paying for it.
Oh, and the Canadian loves himself some Colin Kaepernick. The first thing he said on the show was I bought some new Nikes today.
Nice. He took on American citizenship so he could crap on the country that made him rich.
Here’s Carrey on Bill Maher’s show:
The topic turns to the Dems and how they’ve embraced a hard-left policy shift at about the 12-minute mark, and the following exchange happens at 13:10:
We have to say yes to socialism — to the word and everything,” Mr. Carrey said Friday on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” “We have to stop apologizing.”
His comment came after Mr. Maher complained that Republicans have targeted progressive Democrats who identify themselves as socialist by throwing up the Venezuela example.
“But that word — the Democrats need to get a plan to fight this slander of, ‘Socialism, you’re going to be living in Venezuela,’ ” Mr. Maher said. “And I don’t see it yet.”
Republicans pounced after a number of up-and-coming left-wing candidates — led by New York’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America — picked off established Democrats in this year’s primary contests.
Mr. Maher described the Democratic Party’s move to the left in reaction to President Trump’s 2016 victory as a “shining spot.”
Then Carrey begins singing the praises of the Canadian health care system.
He neglects to mention that the people Canada’s hospitals cannot treat — or people who don’t want to wait months for life-saving or pain managing treatment — fly South to an American Hospital. If Canadians did not have that option, their system would be in even worse shape than the ever-worsening wait lists.
This edition of Waiting Your Turn indicates that, overall, waiting times for medically necessary treatment have in-creased since last year. Specialist physicians surveyed report a median waiting time of 21.2 weeks between referral from a general practitioner and receipt of treatment—longer than the wait of 20.0 weeks reported in 2016. This year’s wait time—the longest ever recorded in this survey’s history—is 128% longer than in 1993, when it was just 9.3 weeks.

If you think the whole country should have a health-care system just as effective and efficient as the VA has been over the last 40 years, you just might be a fan of Carrey’s plan.
And don’t buy his ‘never paid for a prescription’ and picked his own doctor BS, either. If he didn’t, it’s probably because his family was ‘extremely poor’ (according to his biography) and had some kind of government subsidy to cover it. Canadians not only pay for pharmacy visits (it’s actually a campaign issue in an upcoming election) but there is also a shortage of doctors.
A Huffpo headline from last year: “Ontario’s Heading For Another Family Doctor Shortage”
One Reddit article from Canada’s National Capital, Ottawa said the following:
Finding a family doctor in Ottawa is a nightmare
Ive called 20 places now and no one is accepting new patients. Im new to the area and have some chronic conditions that need attention. Its disheartening to keep hearing no after no after no. Does anyone know a physician closer to the east end that is taking patients?
As for his claim that Canada was ‘more compassionate’? That America is ‘sink or swim’, and Canada is warm and inviting? Let’s look again at the province with the shortest wait time:
“Ontario just isn’t prioritizing children and youth in desperate need of mental health services,” Moran told Global News. “The report articulated that children are waiting too long, but there hasn’t been any increases in resources to help these children.”
The CMHO released its own report on Tuesday, which found that more than 9,000 young people across the province are waiting anywhere from three months to a year and half for urgent mental health care.

Three months to a year and a half? For ‘urgent mental health’? That sure looks like ‘sink or swim’ there, Jim. And do you care to explain this figure?
The article states:
“If that many Canadians are willing to pay out of pocket to get faster access to the treatment they need, that means they are dissatisfied with the quality of care,” said Yanick Labrie, a senior Fraser Institute fellow and one of the authors of the report.
How about this for ‘sink or swim’, Jimmy?
Ontario man ‘sentenced to die’ because health care plan won’t cover life-saving cancer treatment.
The treatment for his terminal pancreatic cancer was ‘medically unnecessary’ they said. So they wouldn’t cover the $300k in treatment.
If he’s this ignorant on the Health Care aspect of his socialist utopia, can you even imagine how wrong he is on all the rest?
