Healthcare is very good in Canada...what are you talking about. it's 100% better than USA for sure with Medicare.Sometimes you have to wait a bit, but they won't let you die. Stop watching CNN and Fox News

America had the best Healthcare in the world.  There was no debate about that.  Anyone who thought otherwise was misinformed beyond misinformed.  Not that other counties were all bad.

 

The "problem" with our system was how we handle un-insured people, illegal immigrants, people who couldn't pay, and the inflation in our monetary system, coupled with the fact that half of the spending on Healthcare was already done by Government, which hospitals would charge more to, causing inflation for everybody.  ALL of this lead to rising costs of insurance, and higher costs for Medical Treatment in general.

 

In other words - if our government NEVER get involved - then we never would have run into the biggest of those problems.  Doctors who wanted to treat people without insurance could have found other ways to eat up the cost - rather than it being subsizized by people who have insurance, or the tax payer.  IMO - without all the money being printed, prices would be managable AND we'd have the best health care in the world, instead of the best healthcare but outrageous prices.  And if the government wasn't involved - then inflation wouldn't be centered around Healthcare like it is now - because hospitals know they can charge more to government entities, and because their spending results in new money being printed.

 

The USA shouldn't have Medicare (run by our Federal Govnerment) shouldn't have Medicaid, etc.  Our government is notorious for finding things the American people have made and regulating them out of existance.  I just hope when ObamaCare's done rolling out, that we still have doctors haha.  Knowing the way the government does things, every doctor will have to spend another 10 years in school or something ridiculous.

 

I swear I've heard Obama talking about new regulations one day and he was like "It's going to save the Private Sector 10 Billion dollars over 10 years" without mentioning that those same regulations were also going to cost them 1 TRILLION DOLLARS to comply with over that same decade.

 

In other words - why the hell would that be beneficial?  Prices are going to rise faster the more they get involoved, and THAT WAS THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THE USA's HEALTHCARE SYSTEM.

    We have to watch Fox News if we want the truth !

    If your Heathcare is so good, then why did that Government leader from Eastern Canada come to the USA for Heathcare ??????????

    Any way, Good luck to all in the next Powerball drawing!!!!!!!

    Fox news is junk "journalism".

    Our health care is good and very good. We don't claim that it's perfect. Is yours? The premier of Newfoundland chose to go to a Florida hospital because he had the money. The procedure could have been done in Canada. It was his choice. We have freedom up here, electricity and all the modern conveniences, and don't live in igloos.

    And unlike in the USA we don't let people die because they don't have insurance coverage. You Americans need  to educate yourselves and face the truth. Just saying you're the best and waving your flag, and, oh yes, your guns, doesn't make it so.

        Actually Candians need to learn the truth.

         

        We don't let people without insurance die.  We treat them and charge them out the ass.  And subsidize their costs into others' insurance costs - which is wrong.  Or the Tax Payer - which most Americans think is wrong.

         

        The best thing we could have done is stop spending money on the Health Care Industry - as in our government should have stopped.  One of the main reasons prices were rising was because half the money being spent on HealthCare in the USA was being spent by government - Hospitals were charging government's more - driving up costs.

          I agree with you Truckstop. We don't let people die because they don't have insurance. The same can't be said for America where it's all about the money.

          "America where it's all about the money" he says about the most charitable nation on Earth.....

             Boney I don't dissagree necessarily with you, but sometimes US people think Canada is like a third world country run by a communist dictatorship which is not true. Our system is like hybid of USA, Europe and Commonwealth tradition and still think is better than US system. It's different like France and Spain are.  Visiting Detroit or Cleveland Suburds may change your mind about Canada. Even a scrapyard in Canada does not look like some US cities. I went to Louisiana this Summer and several years after Katrina in some parts, it's like being freezed in time, Nothing has been repair at all. I remember driving through a small town and the only thing repaired was the Mc Donald's sign and the Taco Bell. I cannot imagine why a such rich country in the world can let their own people live in Crackhouses. Instead of " HELPING" foreign oil countries that we don't need to name, US should take care of themselves. Spending 1 or 2 billions A DAY to help foreign countries to make live military industries is not the solutions for the US.

              I don't think public service means absolutly wrong. Our Dental Care and Drugs insurance system work almost like the US Hearlthcare system and see that the Private is more the problem than the solution. For instance here the dentist will have a price for the same job depending who is billed. If you have a Private insurance , it cost 350$ , if you are Wealthfare guy, they will charge like 180$ to the governement ( A Maximum price is fixed by the governement to avoid overcharge, and if you have no insurance, you can deal with the dentist like I pay now on Visa and charge 120$ or wait until it's a emergercy go to the Hostipal Dental service and it's free ( probably 120$ charge to the Governement ) . Three price : same job. it's the same problem with US healthcare system.

                1. The world will be far better off without your "charity". How charitable have you been towards Cuba? And yet you kiss China's ass. This exposes your double standard and your penchant for being a bully. And we know what happens to bullies in the fullnes of time.

                2. America is BANKRUPT - in every sense of the word. Solve your own problems and perfect yourself before you even begin to think about being "charitable".

                    I've mentioned this before and I still find it intriguing how little mario the moron fell off the radar screen and you showed up at about the same time.

                    And you both hate America as much as any democrat living in the US.

                    What a coincidence, huh?

                      Your unintelligent response is to be expected. You and your ilk just can't handle the truth, can't deal with the facts. Your Veep was just over in China kissing up to the Chinese and making promises he can't and won't keep. How many TRILLIONS do you owe China? What are you going to do when you finally figure out you can't pay them? Bomb them? That seems to be America's solution to every problem - bomb, shoot and kill.

                      So go ahead and spout your filth and demonstrate your ignorance for all the world to see, Hillbilly. But the day of reckoning is fast approaching. In the meantime, keep your head buried up your ass and keep drinking your moonshine. Like I said, America is BANKRUPT. And it is NOT Obama's fault. He has been in office for less than three years. But hey, don't let the facts confuse you. After all, that will only get in the way of the hate you spout against your democratically elected President. The previous guy was first appointed by his daddy's friends in your Supreme Court.

                         I don't hate America for my part, I don't know if Trillionnaire hates you and I don't consider myself as a Liberal at all, I think Canada is good country too. I just don't agree with some US international Politics. I don't think also Canada is nation of cowards waiting to be protected by the USA, because we should have wait a long time...Just a small remember history

                        Canada declares war to Germany : September 10 1939

                        Canada declares war to Italy : June 10 1940

                        Canada declares war to Finland, Rumania, Hungary and  Japan  7 December 1941 ( Japan late in the night consider as 8 december in the morning) we even delared war to Japan before USA...

                         

                        Japan declares war to USA : december 7 1941

                        USA declares war to Japan (Because Pearl Harbor)  :  December 8 1941

                        Germany and Italy declares war to USA : December 11 1941

                        Rumania, Hungary and Bulgary declares war to USA : December 13 1941

                        If axis power did not declare war to you, we could have waited a long long time...

                             I read a lot of people winning twice lottery this year , I prefer to wait a couple of weeks until LOTTO MAX gets to 50 Million $ Tax-Free and until Megamillions gets at 250 Millions win both the same night. so Mathematicians would say I had 2 chance on 5 225 000 000 000

                               I don't hate America for my part, I don't know if Trillionnaire hates you and I don't consider myself as a Liberal at all, I think Canada is good country too. I just don't agree with some US international Politics. I don't think also Canada is nation of cowards waiting to be protected by the USA, because we should have wait a long time...Just a small remember history

                              Canada declares war to Germany : September 10 1939

                              Canada declares war to Italy : June 10 1940

                              Canada declares war to Finland, Rumania, Hungary and  Japan  7 December 1941 ( Japan late in the night consider as 8 december in the morning) we even delared war to Japan before USA...

                               

                              Japan declares war to USA : december 7 1941

                              USA declares war to Japan (Because Pearl Harbor)  :  December 8 1941

                              Germany and Italy declares war to USA : December 11 1941

                              Rumania, Hungary and Bulgary declares war to USA : December 13 1941

                              If axis power did not declare war to you, we could have waited a long long time...

                              Having a different view from the Hillbilly Ridge Runner does not mean I hate America. It just means that I have a different and enlightened view.

                              And thanks for pointing out the dates you have. America is a warlike nation which thinks it can solve every problem through the barrel of a gun.

                              I think that Canada is a great country. Despite our imperfections, we are way, way better than the USA, or any other country for that matter. They couldn't pay me to live in America.
