Developer Jim Skaggs 'couldn't believe' when he heard that a neighbor allegedly assaulted U.S. Senator Rand Paul outside his home in Bowling Green. Matt Stone/Louisville Courier Journal

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, one of the fiercest political critics of socialized medicine, will travel to Canada later this month to get hernia surgery.

Paul, an ophthalmologist, said the operation is related to an injury in 2017 when his neighbor, Rene Boucher, attacked him while Paul was mowing his lawn. The incident left Kentucky's junior senator with six broken ribs and a bruised lung.

He is scheduled to have the outpatient operation at the privately adminstered Shouldice Hernia Hospital in Thornhill, Ontario during the week of Jan. 21, according to documents from Paul's civil lawsuit against Boucher filed in Warren Circuit Court.

I thought AMERICA is where people CAME for surgeries and that is why we should be able to charge WAY more than anyone else?

Medical tourism. I'm sure as a Senator he could have gotten the same quality of service if he had gone to a U.S. hospital in Kentucky or Washington D.C..

The word hypocrisy is usually overused in political discussions and debates. Rand is an instance were hypocrite is the perfect word.

Paul's spokesperson engages in obfuscation by saying it is a world renowned hernia center that is private and people come from all over to pay for procedures. Unfortunately as the article notes the center gets much funding through the Canadian healthcare payment system. So basically Paul's claims that single payer is slavery simply shows that free market solutions are slavery because they are predicated on who can afford them. A person with no economic choice due to costs is not free. Of course freedom is also much more than the non-existent free market.
