    It is a necessary cost to increase the number of doctors. Unlike the U.S. we do not have that large of a deficit and also you never healthcare is this country as that will lose the next election we take healthcare pretty seriously.

    Where you at? Canada?

    In any case, I didn't ask you that. I asked you who's gonna pay for it? Want to try again to answer that straight question?

    Yes, Canada. The government using taxpayer money to help finance something that benefits taxpayers by increasing the quality of healthcare.

    The medical student (aka, Doctor) "supply" is limited by our government.
    It's more or less a legal monopoly, which in part, is why doctors are paid more here.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    "Controlling" that is a liberals wish to die for. To "control" yes liberals love to control anything and everything, and then give free stuff at the expense of others. And the others are the rich.

    In the case of the United States, we're 16+ trillion in debt and under Obama we'll be 20 trillion in debt at the end of his 4 yr term. That is an increase in our national debt of over 10 Trillion in just 8 yrs. Now where did you say we were going to get the money from?

    Some articles for you to read up on....

    The Ugly Realities Of Socialized Medicine Are Not Going Away - Forbes

    The architect of Quebec's now-overburdened public health care system is proposing a strong and controversial remedy that includes further privatization and user fees of up to C$100 (about U.S. $98) for people to see their family doctor.

    In a 338-page report, former provincial Liberal health minister Claude Castonguay concluded that Quebec can no longer sustain the annual growth in health care costs. The province currently spends about C$24 billion (about U.S. $23.6 billion) annually on health care, or about 40 per cent of its budget.

    Other recommendations include:

    A new tax, including a "health care deductible" based on income and the number of visits made to a doctor's office or hospital in a calendar year. Low-income families and children would be exempt.
    Encouraging private-sector involvement in the management of hospitals and medical clinics.
    Lifting a ban that prevents doctors from practicing both in the public system and privately.
    Raising the provincial sales tax by up to one percentage point.
    In the report, provocatively titled "Getting Our Money's Worth," the working group headed by Castonguay also recommends an overhaul of the Canada Health Act, which "sooner or later must be adapted to today's realities."

    "If nothing is done, at one point we will reach a crisis point ... this is why we say it is urgent to act," Castonguay said. "There's no miracle solution, there is no simple solution."

    MORE PRIVATE HEALTH CARE IN CANADA URGED

    Canada isn't the only system out there. Now we can play dueling articles. I think I can pick a better source than Forbes if you want. : coffeepap

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
