20. Hear that USA?! $27 a week for a family of 4 regardless of income!!!!!
You are correct. We are being hosed and our government is owned lock stock and barrel by the insurance industry. They are killing and bankrupting us and our legislature are accomplices.

We need to lobby Canada to accept us as health refugees or allow us to purchase Canadian policies at triple your rate to help bolster your system and get care for ourselves.

Would you consider adopting a very nice American couple?
