    You are a leech too. In one way or another, everybody is a leech. But having universal health care isn't being a leech. It is being part of a society.

    What I just said was you have no idea what you are fucking talking about and I proved it to you multiple times. If you want to keep wallowing in your own ignorance and stupidity be my guest. It’s your life.

    Did you even actually look at my thread? It shows what percentage of GDP for various countries goes towards health care. All of the countries that have universal health care pay less as a percentage of their countries GDP for it. You are the one who doesn't understand. Instead you want to bring up bullshit about what the average citizen pays in taxes. For any economy, the GDP is the tally. Taxes are just bullshit.

    For one reason, do you pay taxes? Don't you get most of them back when tax return time rolls around? And when that happens, can't you afford to buy a more expensive item than you might otherwise have been able to afford? So in that regard, the government is actually doing you a favor by taxing you!

    Name a country that would prefer US health care to their own.

    I spend 3,400 dollars a year on healthcare.

    I'll take that over the 12k that Canadians are paying.

    Does your plan pay 100% of your medical bills as Canada does?

    My plan isn't in charge of My lifestyle either.

    Do you believe that every person has a responsibility to their own life or no?

    The fact remains. I pay less than 4k dollars a year in health insurance. (Lets be honest about what we are talking about here, it is insurance, not medical care).

    That means that if I have been paying into the insurance company 4k dollars a year for 10 years, and I have a heart attack, they will have to fork over 80% of a 200k bill.

    That means they will have to pay 160k dollars for My 40k dollar payment.

    So, for 200k dollars worth of coverage, I pay 80k dollars. (4k a year with 4k deductible per year) In case you missed out, that is half of the bill.

    Now, in Canada, I am paying 12k per year in taxes for everyone's healthcare. That is 120k per the same 10 year period.

    That means I have saved 40k dollars by not living in Canada.

    Tell Me again what a deal it is?

    Isn't what Americans prefer the only important question?

    Good luck when your hospital bill is hundreds of thousands of dollars for a life-threatening illness.
