And like I said, waiting for treatment is not good. People with Cancer etc...sometimes have to wait 6-8 months from diagnosis to see a specialist. A lot of us pay and see someone quicker, in the states.

Whoah, 6-8 months? Here in the UK it's 2 weeks, max. If they can't get you an NHS specialist, they go Private. if none are available there, they'll pay to send you abroad.
Sounds like Canada could do with some reform too!
On topic, why are Americans so against a UHC system? Or is it the way it is being implemented as opposed to the idea itself? Seems to me that it's just a bunch of right-wingers crying it's "unconstitutional" all the time, but there is no mention the constitution about UHC, so what's the deal?
