    • And 82% of Canadians have never been out of CANADA!

    • If you breakdown that poll most of their healthcare went to missing teeth and fat lips from hockey injuries.

    • the best care in the world, that's why people from all over the world, canada included, come here for treatment.

      >>Shona Holmes was in trouble: The list of her symptoms included headaches, sleeplessness, dizziness, low libido and, worst of all, rapidly deteriorating vision. Her family doctor in Canada ordered an MRI, and a brain tumor was detected. But it would take months for her to get on the appointment calendar of a neurologist or endocrinologist in Canada.

      "I knew in my gut that I had to see someone and could not wait five to six months," she says. So she called Mayo Clinic and got an appointment the same day.<<

      "Why should anyone think that politicians would do a better job redesigning our healthcare than the free market? After all, politicians have helped create the problems (healthcare costs increasing at an unsustainable rate and a growing number of uninsured) that politicians now are in a hurry to try to fix."

      the last thing the american people need is yet another big-gov lefty scheme to meddle, tinker, intrude and interfere in our lives, our families and our businesses. these big-gov lefty schemes are loaded with even more big-gov lefty schemes to loot and control under the color of authority.

      better: the megabuck junkies and their herds of harassacrats on the potomac need to be cut off, dried out and sent to rehab for the rest of their sorry lives, stfu and leave the american people alone.

      big-gov has become a menace.

        What free market? The medical care system is designed by the pay-to-play system in Washington and the state capitols. That system, according to the Court, needs an Amendment to fix it. That won't happen any time soon. It didn't work in other countries either for various reasons. So they went single-payer with supplemental insurance available in most. In some cases like the UK they don't spend enough and their class warfare continues. In other countries like Germany, France, and Singapore the voters may make adjustments from time to time, but wouldn't consider the US "system".

        Germany spends 1/2 the percent GDP on medical care that the US does with similar results. They don't have 10's of millions of uninsured who either help pay for everyone else or use the most expensive care possible on the taxpayer in ER's. Those buried US ER's are still closing and it could be you or a family member who can't get to an open ER in time someday.

        The older people the Republicans conned into thinking their lifespan a zero sum game with uninsured just drank the Koolaide. They have most likely shortened their own lifespans so insurance execs can buy leather seats in their corporate jets.

        By the way, it's interesting that the clinics in the US that our resident Dixiecrats cite so much as examples of US excellence and economy are organized as non profits.

    • Yeah and the easter bunny will be your personal physican under the hew health care plan. Wait until you have rationed care and your tune will change.

    • People drive across the border from Detroit to Windsor, Canada ALL the time to get lower priced meds. In fact there are buses for senior citizens hired expressly for that purpose - so they can stock up on much cheaper meds.

      Stop listening to right-wing extremist whiners like Hannity and Limbaugh - they'll NEVER tell you the truth.

    • Please give a link to this!

    • No they dont. Not when they have serious problems. Thats why candians come to america when have major problems.

    • Sure pal and there is global warning. Some of my relatives are under the Canadian Program. Or should I say were under the plan. Can you say dead or an untimely death.
