Our health care system the best in the world, what a laugh. We are simply the most expensive. We boast that the foreign elite come here. That simply means the Elite get great health care. The truth is that for overall effectiveness, (ignore the elite) we have the worst healthcare in the industrialized world. We want to criticize Canada?? They are rated #4, we are rated #37 of 37. I have heard all of the excuses, so don't bother. Before posting negatives about the Canadian system you should know I have lived with both and the talking points and propoganda wont fly. We simply have a system that is made of greed. I see the problems as, greedy trial attorneys, greedy MDs, greedy Hospitals and the fact that our health care is monopolized. We have the AMA that controls who and how many graduate from med school. We have the Hospital association that controls where when why and every other aspect of hospitals. There are 9 people turned back from medical school for every 1 (in many cases unqualified Doctors sons or daughters) that are admitted. The #1 problem with the Canadian system is the FACT that Doctors train there on the gov tit and then come to the good old USA so they can prey (as our doctors do) on the american public and become rich. This is the only profession in this country that you can do a poor job and have great success.
