    So not only in America. AND so? Why shouldn't you have to pay your bills? Is it your expectation that you should say buy a car..and then not have to make the payments on it?
    Yeah, you proved it's extremely rare in Canada. Nice job.

    Buying a car is a choice. Healthcare is not a choice. How can a free market function properly without choice?
    So nobody forgets, you're welcome!

    Actually.. the information I linked to showed that when the bankruptcy laws were apples to apples with Canada.. it happened at about the same rate.

    I see.. so according to you.. buying food.. must be a "choice"... since its a free market system? Or do you think we need to socialize all grocery stores, and farms and meat and produce packaging plants?

    What about shelter? Or clothing? They all function in the free market...

    Or do you contend that its a choice whether a person has shelter.. or whether they want to wear clothing?

    Actually I pointed out in other posts.. but yes.. that's the point.. in other countries people do go bankrupt for medical reasons.. and just like in this country.. the vast vast reason is because of the decrease in INCOME that the medical issue causes.. and not due to medical bills.
