Response to Ichingcarpenter (Original post)

7. I'm retired now

 

but when working, I worked a lot, all over Canada. I heard the Canadian health care horror stories so I made it a point to ask Canadians about their health care. I probably asked 100 people. Their consensus was that indeed, if you had something non life threatening you are going to wait longer for treatment than in the US because there are poor people in line ahead of you in Canada. If you have a life threatening issue, you are taken care of immediately. My final question to them was, would you trade your health care for our US health care? No one, I repeat, no one said they would trade.
