    Probably because it's not free. Nothing is "free".
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    None the less, paying extra taxes, to not be rejected at the hospital because you don't have insurance, or the money, is amazing.

    Not amazing here in the U.S. Many of us like paying for things ourselves instead of trusting some bureacracy to take all of our money and do the right things with it. That, historically, hasn't been working so well.

    Also... Why the Pierre Trudeau reference? Really? He was a better leader than any other Canadian PM will ever be.
    Nothing is free. Somebody is paying for your health care. If not out of your check, than it's out of your neighbor's check.

    Didn't I hear a while back that some place in Canada they held a lottery? If you were lucky enough to get your name drawn you got a doctor?

    Do I really care? Do I care I pay for Welfare pays? Do I care I pay for Medicare? No, it's all for the greater good of Canada. Some people need welfare or they'd be on the streets. Fine take my money, they need it more. If they get the flu, and if the lived in the US, they wouldn't be able to pay for that basic care. Fine, take my money, they need it more. If I need to have an emergency visit to the hospital I apperciate the fact that the government will pay for it. Through me paying them.

    The fact that the government takes my money then puts it back towards me is something I like. I assures I have those services. While you may not like it, we Canadians wouldn't know what to do without it.

    Re: The JFK poll

    I voted other, I don't want anything paid for by income taxed by others, nor do I want mine taxed. The only thing I want from my countrymen is the defense of my rights, and the only thing they should expect of me is to fight and die (if need-be) defending theirs.

    Anything else I do or give is by choice, as it ought to be.

    There is no shortage of doctors, thats just biased.

    So this is all a lie?

    Watch the video. It's sad how they are drawing names for lucky people.
    So, Canada has "free" healthcare for all. Yet 5 million people have no doctor and things are getting worse.

    Video: Canada’s health-care lottery Hot Air

    Why aren’t there more family-practice physicians? Canada’s provincial governments had to cut their spending on health care, which drove the doctors out of the system. Thanks to a lack of competition, no other supply can come to market, which eventually leads to this kind of rationing.

    Even though many people don't have a family practitioner, we all still have health care. Unlike Americans.

    47 Million Americans Without Health Insurance, Census Report

    Wao. 47'000'000 with no healthcare what so ever. Read it.

    Also many people don't have a family doctor because either, they don't want one, or have never thought about having one. Agian, there, is, no, shortage.
