> I find it interesting that you use Canada as an example of how you find universal health care to be a bad thing, and I notice that your complaints about universal health care match those that critics of the system here in Canada often voice. Sadly, I know too little about Canadian health care (having rarely needed to use the system) and nothing about US health care (except what I learned from ER, so I'll call it nothing), but I would be curious to see a debate about the differences between the two systems.

My father works in the healthcare industry, selling computer networks to hospitals. Thusly, he is very knowledgeable on the subject. He's been involved with it for 20 years. From what little I remember that he's told me about Canada's health care system (he has dealt with hospitals there a lot), everything Sam said is correct. Examples include the 3 MRI machines in the entire country, and ONE Children's Hospital, in Toronto, for which the waiting list is humungous. He says lots of Canadians come to America for health care.
