25. And why, exactly, do you think I'm disagreeing with that?

When I made the first post I was remembering a neighbor's Canadian relative who became seriously ill on a visit. She was rushed to the local hospital and later transferred to a major medical center an hour away. She needed surgery, but rather than have it done at the American hospital which was horrendously expensive, the Canadian government sent a jet with a medical team to pick her up and take her to Toronto for treatment. She recovered nicely. Now, I don't expect the poor skier could have been transported anywhere, but it's surprising there are huge medical bills against her estate since most Canadians travel outside the country with insurance. Of course we need single-payer.
