lets put it this way BOTH forms of healthcare have their own problems, with private health care it's finding a cheap (or free) doctor is hard, with
universal healthcare just FINDING any doctor able to take new patients is hard. with private healthcare cost is extreme. with universal healthcare, it
might be free (if what you need is actually covered), but be prepared to wait possibly a year or more for help, even if you are in severe pain, so you
can't work. this is why many people from both the US and Canada head off to other countries where healthcare is cheaper and readily available.
Americans flock to Canada for their prescriptions because it's cheaper? WOW
that's kinda funny since a lot of Canadians flock down to the states
for cheaper prescriptions as well as helpful medicines that you don't even need a prescription for but are illegal in Canada so they smuggle it back.
as for the guy in China, it really came as a shock that they have pay medical there being a "communist country" and all. it's a shame that
seemingly all over the world you run into issues with healthcare as it's either cost prohibitive, or not readily available. is there no happy median
between the two?
