    Socialized medicine fails? I didn't see that written anywhere in the article. Besides, America doesn't have "socialized" medicine. Also, Quebec is not all of Canada.

    You keep telling yourself that.

    You will eventually get sick. And when you do, you are going to find that you have screwed yourself out of prompt, good health care.

    Delayed medical attention is usually better than none at all.

    I wonder what percentage of those women would have no hope of surviving without their healthcare.
    "Prompt, good healthcare" is a horrible argument to use when it is only available to a select percentage of the population.

    True. However, since there has always been superior, prompt healthcare in this country, until now, your point is moot.

    Spoken by someone who is privileged enough to have had superior, prompt healthcare in this country.

    That's right. Regardless of ability to pay. Do you know anyone who died because he couldn't get treatment without money up front?

    I don't. And I work with the poorest of the poor.

    It's about so much more than that, access to medicine, affordable care for those with pre-existing conditions, affordable care for those who never thought they would need it...

    I also work with a population who can't afford their treatment. Thank God they have healthcare that covers what they need, but they are a tiny percentage of the people who need it. What Obama has done has opened the door for more people to get the care that they need.

    No, it hasn't. I work with the same population..they already had healthcare. The lie about "the poor people didn't have health care before Obamacare" is a lie. A complete and total lie.
