    You're not going to successfully pilot the issue away from your misuse of Doig as a source to advance the anti-public option agenda of yours.

    I know why you are here, you know why you are here. And it sure as hell isn't about honestly discussing Canada's health care issues.

    You could care less.

    I see you still have problems with taking quotes out of context. Let me show you another example of taking quotes out of context that is on par with what you just did:

    the personality whore is mind reading again

    canada's on an unsustainable path, i think that's real sad

    "to successfully pilot" is a split infinitive

    never insert any word between "to" and any verb

    to run, to jump, to state a "subjective viewpoint" as opposed to an "empirical claim"---infinitive form of verb, don't split it

    you want to APPEAR educated, i appreciate

    She said it was on an unsustainable path without changes. She also said they where not adopting a US type system. Why is this hard for you? When it's all said and done, Canada is still going to have UHC.

    Funny enough that is exactly what most people say about the US medical system too!

    Until you learn about sentences and paragraphs, you should never lecture any one on grammar.

    you mean, "were," not "where"

    I might have the numbers a bit off, but it was something like Americans are 4 times more liely to die in a car accident and 12 times more likely to die by homicide then Japan, for instance.

    I would also suggest that if all the countries counted a live birth as Americans do - we would improve our life expectancy even higher.

    Source? That's a false comparison unless deaths from accident and homocide were also removed from the mortality rates of the other nations mentioned.

    The CIA Factbook moderates infant mortality rates in the way that you suggest. If you'd like to see how life expectnacy figures look after this, it's a good source.

    My mother had five kids in one of the worst regions in the country and we were all born in a nice little hospital. I don't think you realise how much help pregnant women get over here. There's always isolated cases but you have to take into account that pregnant women are told when to know the baby is coming. The onus is on her to ring up on time as well as the room to be ready for her when she gets there.

    Actually, they did remove accidents and homicides from all countries, at least according to the Sun Times article.

    I did a search on Yahoo and manged to find another article that referenced the same study:

    Reformers' Claims Just Don't Add Up - Yahoo! Finance

    U.S. life expectancy in 2006 was 78.1 years, ranking behind 30 other countries. So if our health care is so good, why don't we live as long as everyone else?

    Three reasons. One, our homicide rate is two to three times higher than other countries. Two, because we drive so much, we have a higher fatality rate on our roads -- 14.24 fatalities per 100,000 people vs. 6.19 in Germany, 7.4 in France and 9.25 in Canada. Three, Americans eat far more than those in other nations, contributing to higher levels of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.

    These are diseases of wealth, not the fault of the health care system. A study by Robert Ohsfeldt of Texas A&M and John Schneider of the University of Iowa found that if you subtract our higher death rates from accidents and homicide, Americans actually live longer than people in other countries.

    and, I even found the actual study:
    http://www.aei.org/docLib/9780844742403.pdf

    The actual chart ranking life expectancy among the countries (after accidents and homicides are removed) is on page 22.
