Snap, I'm gonna rent a fleet of vehicles to ship in all the homeless, druggies, and general poor people into NYC from Ohio, with a pamphlet on how to become a NY resident. This is gonna be a hoot.


Anyone wanna fund my venture?

Why do so many Canadians come to the US for treatment?

How many would that be? Please, do tell. I don't know one (and I know a lot of folks).


2014 estimate is 52513 Canadians received non emergency medical treatments in the US and abroad, a 25 % increase of the previous year.
Key phrase is non emergency. Elective surgeries, queue-jumping, even provincially-paid services such as MRIs in border regions to take advantage of unused American clinic time. Quick jaunt to Buffalo for a night-time scan to take some pressure off of our system. It ain't perfect, but I have never met a Canadian who would swap for America's. An' like I said...I know a lot of folks.

Is also worth noting its an extremely dodgy estimate, made by a right wing think tank, by polling doctors (not patients) and asking them to guess how many patients went abroad.

Except it would take 10 years to get an appointment, and well, it's Canada, so who wants to go to a third world country for treatment .

Compare populations. all of the UK 66 million people compared to 325 million in the US.

Brits are really good at making their system seem magical while everything burns around them.
500 million people in the EU have tax funded healthcare. Try again mate.

Wow. So how much is this going to cost us?

Also undocumented immigrants? Can he divert our tax dollars to foreign nationals like that?

Sounds like I just lost more of my paycheck.

I don't like my mayor. I didn't vote for the C word.

Be honest, acute care on the NHS is fantastic. Routine stuff? 1-2 years to get that hip replacement mentioned above. Chronic shortage of staff, and chronically underfinanced. Christ...its on Jeremy Vine second only to Brexit.

I've never met anyone from any nation in the world who would want the US healthcare system, even in Laos.
Yet still they defend it while the 500 million in the EU look on and feel sorry for their people.

"Quick jaunt to Buffalo for a night-time scan to take some pressure off of our system." Way to bury the lead there.

There isn't any "unused clinic time" in the US. You'll wait for almost any doctor, but a typical wait time is a couple of days, not weeks or months like in Canada.

I'm sorry?

NYC residents have many options for which we are already taxed. Heavily.

Canada has been ranked as the number one best country for quality of life for the past three years. While their healthcare system may not be the best example of universal healthcare (France) they're clearly doing something right up there.

I don't have a dog in this fight being a Brit, but I'd just like to say I'd wish my tax funded healthcare for everyone in the world. 500 million EU nationals have similar, it is only the US as a developed nation which doesn't offer such a system...
It is the sign of a civilised society in my opinion.

Amen to that, cousin! Cured of prostate cancer for $32 out of pocket. Dare to demand better, America!

Out of YOUR pocket, the rest came out of everyone's taxes. There's no free ride. If you like your healthcare, thank a rich person, they're subsidizing it.

No, I thank me, my neighbours, anyone who contributes to the tax base. We all pull together and we take care of each other. And our standard of living is at least as good as yours. Yes, Sparky...it CAN be done! Demand Better!
