    If you figure what you pay for health care, and add it in as if it were a tax, it would no doubt increase your rate.
    Nearly all Canadians love their heealthcare and not even the most conservative PM would dare to change it.

    The topic was Canadian Health care.
    Between Stossel and Moore, I'll trust Moore.

    Not the folks I spoke to yesterday , They said if they had the choice of getting their% health care tax money back, so they could purchase insurance in the USA they would do so in a heartbeat they stated 6 months waiting list for an MRI, I dont have to contact my insurance company to see a specialist or to get an MRI No waiting other than a day or so in one case.

    Most Canadians have never known any other system, but among this group of informed consumers, the US system is preferred in every area concerning the quality of health care they received and the Canadian system preferred only in areas concerning access and cost.

    Americans in Canada prefer U.S. health care: poll

    Since this group of well educated, well informed consumers rate the quality of health care delivered in the US to people with insurance as superior to the quality of health care Canadians receive, wouldn't it make more sense to try to help more Americans gain access to our superior health care services than to adopt a system that delivers inferior health care services?

    There are so many things people forget about the countries with socialized healthcare ... they try to ignore these facts on purpose.

    Americans in Canada prefer U.S. health care: poll

    Americans living in Canada prefer the U.S. health-care system for speed, quality and diagnostic technology, says a new study. But they also applaud the equity and cost-effectiveness of Canada’s system. And in the final analysis, 40 per cent prefer the Canadian system.
