    By Chris Hawley, USA TODAY
    MEXICO CITY — It sounds almost too good to be true: a health care plan with no limits, no deductibles, free medicines, tests, X-rays, eyeglasses, even dental work — all for a flat fee of $250 or less a year.
    To get it, you just have to move to Mexico.

    As the United States debates an overhaul of its health care system, thousands of American retirees in Mexico have quietly found a solution of their own, signing up for the health care plan run by the Mexican Social Security Institute.

    The system has flaws, the facilities aren't cutting-edge, and the deal may not last long because the Mexican government said in a recent report that it is "notorious" for losing money. But for now, retirees say they're getting a bargain.

    Have you been to the US/Mexico border in the last 10 years?
    It used to be that once you crossed the border you passed shops with blankets, pottery, cheap trinkets and tequilla.
    Now when you cross the border you see row upon row of pharmacias, dentists and medical clinics.
    Americans look at what they pay for prescriptions, simple dental procedures and routine procedures and find they can get it in Mexico at 20% of the cost in the US. Most of those people are repeat customers....so it can't be that bad

    Please.
    Don't make accurate and realistic statements to a bunch of semi literate, flag waving, morons.
    They didn't hear it from Coulter, Limbaloney or Hannutsy so it must be a lie.
    Idiocracy.

    I realize you bypass the pharmacias, dental offices and medical clinics to get to the titty bars and brothels, but you must have noticed some change
