Justin Bieber unimpressed with American health care system, prefers Canada's
FoxNews.com ^ | February 16, 2011 | Fox411

Posted on 02/16/2011 11:18:20 AM PST by ColdOne

Canadian tween heartthrob Justin Bieber has weighed in on the U.S. health care system — and he isn’t impressed.

"You guys are evil," he laughs in the new issue of Rolling Stone. "Canada's the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don't need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you're broke because of medical bills. My bodyguard's baby was premature, and now he has to pay for it. In Canada, if your baby's premature, he stays in the hospital as long as he needs to, and then you go home."

Bieber, who turns 17 on March 1st, also has an opinion on abortion.

"It's like killing a baby," he says.

But Beiber appears conflicted on abortion in the case of rape.

"Um. Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."

Yeah... that is why Canadians rush to America when their health turns serious... 17 year old mush-brained spoiled brat... with a fag haircut.

That little boy has never paid taxes. ....and he certainly doesn't understand what they're used for.

I think we just saw the fad of Bieber’s popularity peak.

In no time he will be lucky to be doing 3AM infomercials on cable.

"It's like killing a baby," he says.

But at least he got that part right ... with a little editing. Remove the word "like" and he's 100% correct.

“’You guys are evil,’ he laughs in the new issue of Rolling Stone. ‘Canada’s the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don’t need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you’re broke because of medical bills.’”

Does he ever ask who pays for it, if not the patient? Does a wizard take care of it?

By the way, if you ever wondered how to tell if you’re in a Dark Age, people listening to someone like Justin Bieber on healthcare is a tell-tale sign.

Kid Beeber has got abortion about right.

But besides that, why would anyone want his opinion on anything other than video game cheats & acne medication?

He’s a teenager and doesn’t understand the health care system and the fact that someone has to pay for this stuff.

But the reaction of the “adults” posting replies on here is laughable. Grow up people.

OOPS!

‘The studio has been screening the movie (Never Say Never) for many Christian faith leaders in hopes that the film will attract a religious audience, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Bieber is quite vocal about his faith during interview, and you can see it as well throughout the film. Many times, Bieber is seen praying before a concert or talking about God as his inspiration.’

I don’t care for his type of music, but I’m inclined to cut the boy a little slack.
How often do you see this boy’s type of behavior among the scum in the rap, hiphop rock music industry?
Maybe he could have some positive influence on young people.

You've got scads of money, and he's your bodyguard - why don't you pay for it? What? You don't want to? Well, I don't even know the man. If you don't want to pay for it, why should I?

Because it wasn't for free. Someone does have to pay for it.

If the baby was born in Canada, would there be a neo-natologist anywhere but in the largest cities to keep the baby alive?

Let’s hear from Justin about real life issues when he is 50. Until then, just sing, kid.

He’s a sixteen year old kid who thinks that his country does things better. It’s not that big a deal. I’m also guessing that he didn’t bring the subject up himself, was asked his opinion and gave it.

And I care as much as I care about any 16 year old’s opinion.

Maybe he should consult Liam Neeson on the issue of health care, specifically emergency care. He then can be better informed when he runs off at the mouth

Poor little tween hearthrob can’t let loose of enough money to give the guy who keeps his weedy little bod in one piece health insurance? Pitiful.

Don't blame this foolish, ignorant and perhaps stupid child (is he 16 or 17?, I don't know) for having an idiotic opinion. Blame Rolling Stone for asking him the question and then going to press with his comments. They set him up to make a fool of himself. I know nothing about this kid, except those around me who do know say he's a joke. He really doesn't have any talent but that hasn't stopped a host of others from becoming financially successful (remember Madonna, and Gaga?).

We can only hope this insanity of paying any attention to entertainers will stop. In an earlier day, in more sane day, these people where the court jesters for the royalty. Today a small but significant percentage of people actually pay attention to these fools. Are you paying attention California. You elected Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor. You fit into that category.

If he can't handle the return fire, he shouldn't have opened his mouth.

If he hasn't learned that lesson yet, then it's time.

He’s just a kid and he was asked these questions. it’s not like he is standing there giving everyone his opinion Rolling Stone brought it up. I don’t see how calling a kid names and insulting him really makes anyone appear to be smarter, better informed, more mature or anything else. it just looks like a bunch of mean spirited people wanting to shut up an opinion that doesn’t match theirs.

He’s a kid people, just give him a break. So many people here are just so miserable and seem to want the rest of the world to be miserable with them so they just spew hate.

No prob. Anyway, the Beeb evidently thinks that the Canadian gov’t provides FREE services, and that the citizens don’t have to pay for it. He has a lot of growing up to do.

From my understanding of the article, he made an off the cuff comment during a friendly chat with a reporter.

He's not a polished adult politician that has an extreme awareness of literally every word that leaves his mouth.

He's just a kid.

What the hell is the matter with you.

Notice there is no distinction between the neo-elitist, young tween entitlement mind and the rest of the “adult-age professorial” liberals and “victimhood” mindset? They are all children who look down on the adults in life.

He seems like a good kid and I have hope for him. God knows, that when I was his age, I used to “feel sorry” for “minorities”. (So thankful to have grown up and, unlike most liberals, see people in the way that Dr. King implored us to see them.)
