    They live longer than we do. Must be getting decent health care, eh? And they support their system across the board. Odd thing to support if it's so bad, eh?

    And a half million Americans at least go to Mexico for healthcare..

    Or how about the 30.000+ that travel to Thailand for healthcare?

    How about India?

    Or how about those American's that dont get any healthcare at all because they cant afford it?

    What are their demographics? Are they the same as ours?

    I'm still not sure why Canada is still in the debates here. We aren't proposing a UHC but a public OPTION. Yes, choice. Here, this sets things in a bit of contrast to what this argument claims.

    Healing journey: More Americans go abroad for cheaper health care

    EDIT:

    Here's another story:

    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Maybe because the thread is about Canadians.

    Doesn't much matter, does it? No matter what your demographics are, if you have low grade, crappy health care you will die sooner on average. Place a bunch of people of ANY demographic in Sudan and see how long they live (not including homicide).

    I'm not suggesting we switch to their system, but let's not play the partisan spin game here. Canadians do not suffer from a lack of quality care. Simple as that. Their system works quite well for them. Which is why they like it and would not switch systems if given the chance.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Well I can definitively tell you Canadians do not go to the US for care in any significant numbers.

    It is simply not true.
