Where I live is a major tourist destination in the country. During the summer you can see lots of Canadian license plates, and I use to sell cars and
lots of Canadians use to come to our lot because cars are cheaper down here. So I have talked to a lot of them and they are all pretty much in
agreement that the US health care system is not that crappy.
Also again the population of Canada is 33 million people the population of the US is 300 million so that is quite a few more people. Which means that
the cost is considerably higher.
The problem with our system isn't the health care it is the insurance companies. More importantly it is the government regulation. More regulation
makes the overhead go up. Also a lot of these insurance companies have lobbied to pass laws that benefit them.
Also we have lots of clinics here in the US that people can go too where the cost of a check up or to diagnose a problem is cheaper. You don't ever
hear about those though.
Our health care laws need to be reformed to benefit US going to a complete Universal Heath Care system here in the US will be a disaster because of
the runaway illegal immigrant problem.
Another thing is it that wrong to ask people to get a job where the company offers benefits and the cost of insurance is significantly lower?
