    I don`t know if Spain is that good of an example, at least use Germany if you want to start this discussion.

    Yeah but you`d still have to live in Spain. Not for me, thanks.

    If anything, Obamacare makes this situation much, much worse.

    People argue about things they have no idea about because getting along with each other is just too hard.

    Dont like spain?
    You are invited to come to Luxemburg.
    Maybe you have to pay a higher rent, but we have no bull races, so you save on the second hip replacement.

    "Surgical Tourism" is spreading fast. India is a popular spot...

    In Canada we often travel to the USA for healthcare. Well Obama`s putting a stop to THAT! lolz!

    Spain: Other people are being forced to pay the cost of your hip replacement.

    USA: You are being forced to pay the cost of other people`s hip replacements.

    Any questions?

    Yeah, do that in Spain. We already have a huge problem with "health tourists" stealing our NHS treatments.

    5Cats, I`m pretty certain that the number of times Canadians travel outside of Canada is a tiny fraction when compared to the millions of medical procedures completed in country.

    Not saying it doesn`t happen and not saying our system is perfect.

    @Kcorb: I`m not suggesting anything like that!

    "Public Healthcare" As envisioned by Tommy Douglas is a GREAT idea!
    Too bad it doesn`t exist in Canada...

    Your link is `pre-ObamaCare`. Just fyi...

    And it`s a lot more than you think! Since it`s largely "unreported" the official statistics don`t accurately reflect the large number of Canadians `going south` for tests or treatments. But it`s a significant %.

    There are several US cities & towns with medical centers that do HALF their business with Canadians! I know of several in North Dakota alone!

    A few years back? Manitoba had 5 MRI machines, total.
    Grand Forks ND had 4... just saying...

    Wait time (currently) for MRI in MB is a few weeks.
    In ND? A few hours...

    But would you really call it living if you were stuck in Spain for two years trying to survive off $26,000? Great if you speak Spanish and love ghettos I guess.

    I hate watching these videos because they`re like, "This is the problem and you should do something about it", and I sit here thinking, "I live in Canada; this is your problem and you should do something about it."
