  1. I am a Canadian, the Canadian system is NOT a health care system. It is a wait and see if you survive system.
    I paid taxes and fees for care that was not provided.
    I am suffering and no one will help.
    I have had to pay for care out of pocket until the pocket and credit cards are all done
    The system refuses to reimburse me my expenses
    Lawyers refuse to help me fight to get reimbursed – they want easy money and do not want the system fixed
    I have no money left for my medication and necessary therapy and treatment
    The system is a failure, a fraud and is abusive
    So called health boards inform care homes their attrition rates are too low – this means people are not dying fast enough
    There is NO care
    I worry for my American friends but the current system in America is not great either, many suffer
    We all deserve better than we have but it will not change until government is forced to change

  2. Gee, offer free healthcare and demand outstrips supply! Whouldda thunk? At zero cost, demand is just about infinite.

  3. Our politicians and bureaucrats here in America are literally crazy as they make deals with certain providers to create monopolies which is socialized health care, and has been proven historically to never work in every case. Many other countries have ventured ion this path which never works and instead of turning to free enterprise to solve all of our problems these spineless leaders who only want to gain reelection and preferential health care and retirement packages do not care one iota. God Bless you "suffering", I wish you all the best and please utilize natural remedies as much as possible as the pharmaceutical giants could care less about your health.

  4. Our Canadian friend is critiquing a system in his small, but relatively more civil society than our own. I would think the US system will be beset by the same general problems, but on a much more massive scale, by much cruder bureaucrats and operated by medical professions, who are simply so overwhelmed by the magnitude of problem that they will behave more like Dr. Frankenstein than Dr. Livingston.

  5. Participation in government health care though mandatory is essentially a death sentence for the ill. Develop a personal relationship with your health care provider and make arrangements to pay cash for exams and services. Look outside your country of origin for critical surgery. Implement the free market. It's not dead, it just smells that way.

  6. I will take our before Obamacare system over the Canadian system any day. I've always had good medical insurance care and do not want Obamacare in any form.

  7. I'm a Canadian and I can tell you that I'm not at all impressed with our health care system whatsoever. Granted, it did work better in years past than it does today but these days the wait times are pathetic.
    I suggest you Americans would be wise to pass up on it as anything administered by governments (sadly, any government) is guaranteed to be abysmally inefficient and a huge waste of tax dollars. Remember, if it's perceived to be free by the patient, it's easy come, easy go.

  8. Obamacare was passes by the Liberals (only). It should be let go thru. All indications at this time point to a disaster. After a year or two, the people will see how bad it is, what lies were told, and demand corrective changes. Then, of course, Obama-true to form-will blame Bush but people will not be fooled because no Republican voted for it, and they know it.

    WE (Americans) ROSE UP AND BEAT THE MOST POWERFUL ARMY IN THE WORLD BECAUSE THEY TRIED TO TAKE OUR GUNS AND IMPOSE THEIR WILL ON US; RELATIVELY LESS EGREGIOUS SINS (IMO) THAN BEING CONDEMNED TO DIE BECAUSE YOUR GOV'T IS RUN BY FOOLS.
    IT'S TIME FOR YOU ALL TO DEAL WITH SOME OF THESE BUREAUCRATS DECISIVELY.
    JUST WAIT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN THE US WHEN PPL START BEING SHOVED OFF TO DIE.
    IF WE ARE GOING TO GO OUT ANYWAY…..
