Can somebody explain the difference between medicare and medicaid?? I don't get it.
Socialism is where the government and private industry are the same. Whether the government controls private industry, or private industry controls government, makes no difference.
Otherwise known as facism, or the free market.

Also is it no wonder that Pharmaceutical industries thrive in our country, while flee others. Since we don't set price controls here, pharmaceutical companies are free to invent new drugs, and properly set prices; IT is why WE Americans see the newest drugs here FIRST, because introducing them where the prices are determined by bureaucrats would mean taking a loss on a new innovation.

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.
So you are saying that the Canadians are coming to the U.S.A. for health care?
That do not go through proper clinical trials, and are instead "fast-tracked" straight to the consumer so Big Pharma can make a quick buck because its cheaper to pay a few malpractice, lawsuits than properly test them?
