    But now that the government is gonna' be in charge of our health care we'll very soon zoom to the top of that list.

    Yes. And before you know it people from all those countries who can afford it will stop coming to the US for medical care they can't currently get in their own countries.

    If they were ranked by profit instead of care the US might well be NUMBER ONE!

    Listen to me you pinko swine, America has the best health care in the world and everybody knows it.

    We don't need no stinkin' studies! We don't need no stinkin' data! We don't need no stinkin' facts!

    It's the feeling, that feeling in your gut that says "Gosh darn it, this is the best country in the world at everything and health care just ain't no different."

    Yes sirrreee, go back to Canada and take yer STINKIN' EDUCATION WITH YA!

    Communist! = Socialist! = Islamist! Arrrrrghhhh!!! Grrrrhhhrhrhrhhhhh.... uhh........

    We need a cross-eyed smilie.
