    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.

    You're ignorant. Educate yourself. THe UN Funded WHO study was completely rigged to favor Socialized medical schas BESemes. The USA was number one where it counts. Responsiveness. It's "free" doesn't do you any good when you're dead because you couldn't get an ambulance.

    I have heard all of this before. Please back up what you say. Show me where the responsiveness factor that you claim is documented.

    What we respond when it is too late. It is a fact that we are overall #37 OF 37
    make all the excuses you want. We could manipulate the facts to raise the USA
    ratings. Which is the usual. I have been there and done that, taking into account all of the "unfair" stats. If we aRE TOTALLY bias it raises us to #30
    Wow, we should be proud of that. Greed rules.

    "Responsiveness: The nations with the most responsive health systems are the United States, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Canada, Norway, Netherlands and Sweden"

    Why are we the most expensive of your examples? There is no way to justify our current system. The system is fixed and we have a bunch of crooks administering health care. Yes, the MEDICAL profession is made up, generally of scammers, frauds, and crooks in the good old USA. The only profession that you are guaranteed wealth without even being proficient. I have personally been involved with 2 visits that took a total of 1 hour of the doctors time and cost me 12,000.00. This is the only civilized country in the world that one illness can cost you your life savings. Sick by any standard.

    You really are an idiot aren't you WShaw.
    A source of increased prices is the artificial demand created by Medifraud. Medifraud is a partial SOCIALIST intrusion on the medical field in the USA. Since the inception of Medifraud prices have skyrocketed.

    Why don't you blame the idiot politicians who instituted Medifraud (that would be LBJ and the Democrats FYI)?

    Really, why dont the other countries have these problems, or do they. You are the Idiot for eating up every talking point laid before you. Let us look at the facts.
    #1 expense #37 effectiveness. Excuses are excuses. If we are such a great country,(The richest on earth) why do we under preform. GREED
    We are so greedy we refuse to save money because we are afraid someone else will gain from it. Stupidity to the max.

    Oh and by the way, is medicaid the reason that a 30 minute doctor visit costs 300.00 when that doctor does not even accept Medicaid?? As I said before Excuses, Excuses, Excuses. #1 in cost #37 in effectiveness . We are real winners.

    From what I have seen here so far folks eat up the talking points, rationalize, make excuses but are not interested in the facts. We are #1 cost for healthcare
    and #37 in effectiveness. This is really sad considering we are the richest nation in the world. It seems greed has taken over. It seems even the every day folks in the USA have succomed to the attitude, "I have mine, screw you."
    Really sad. It used to be one loved thy neighbor as thy self. Obama might be right, Re set the whole thing.

    This is what the WHO ranks as a top notch healthcare system compared to our so called bad system according to WHO.

    If you can't use the 'quote' and 'edit' buttons, why on earth is anyone going to actually bother to debate with you?
