    Now, let's take a look at the study. What do you think the results mean? Is the fleeing of Canadian patients going to other countries for medical intervention a poor reflection on the current Canadian healthcare system? That Canadians 'flock' to American hospital means that the American system is superior? I'm interested in your opinion,and what you think the results of the 'study' means.
    It means exactly what I said in my previous post. Canadians in too much pain to wait months for elective surgery come to America to get it.

    If it matters - I would love to see the federal government face consequences for their actions instead of them having the people bail them out...

    Our federal government has no consequences for their actions - they can do whatever they want.

    This unfairly lumps me in. I'm not necessarily opposed to some form of a UHC system in practice.

    Neither does Walstreet, or banks, or other too big to fail operations. The government, however, can be held accountable the second we want to hold them so. Merely start voting large numbers of them out of office. That's how we exercise accountability.

    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.

    Is that what you really think, especially when you look at the bigger picture?

    I still don't see why you think Canadians flock to the US for healthcare. It's absolutely untrue.
