"I'm a Canadian and I DO NOT like our healthcare system. It`s `good` but not as good as many other nations. Waiting 4 months to JUST SEE a doctor? = not good."

As a man married to a Canadian and living in Canada I`ve never had to wait 4 months to see a doctor here. I make an appointment and I get serviced just like I do in the States. Not sure if you are living in some backwater part of the Country up in the northwest territories but here in Ontario I don`t have those problems.

Yes the people of Canada are mindless drones under the strong arm of the government with no freedoms right?

@HG: Um, yes, we are! We're taxed MUCH higher than y`all. I don`t mean `rates` I mean the end result of PST, GST, CPP, gas tax, `sin` tax & etc. Our "tax freedom day" is like 40 days later that in the USA.
And we`re STUPID about it! Everyone figures someone ELSE will pay, not them!

I`m a Canadian and I DO NOT like our healthcare system. It`s `good` but not as good as many other nations. Waiting 4 months to JUST SEE a doctor? = not good.

"I provide for myself and my family."

You really don't probably. You probably don`t pay enough in taxes to cover your family`s share of the federal, state, and local government services you utilize. If you add up things like national defense, public schools, fireman and police, public roads, and all other public non-assistance programs (so not including things like welfare and food stamps which you don`t use) the number is over $5T annually (If I remember correctly). That is roughly $17,000 for every person in the country.

So if you have a wife and 2 kids, your family should pay $68,000 to truly provide for yourselves. If you don`t then other people are paying for the services you use.

Not trying to be argumentative, just something to think about it.

All I know HG is that a government that has the power to give you anything you want has the power to take from you everything you have. I provide for myself and my family. I'm not trying to argue with you. I see your point. It`s just not for me but I won`t be able to opt out. I don`t need government assistance. I don`t want government assistance. But under PBO I have no choice.

As for SS...I could invest that money better than the fed and as for public Ed, since the mid seventies and DOE things have gone straight to hell.

I believe in individuals free to pursue their dreams, not a bloated federal government empowered to "take care of everybody."

"There's no such thing as free health care. That`s just a myth perpetrated by politicians who are willing and able to control your whole life if you`re stupid enough to let them. "

Yes the people of Canada are mindless drones under the strong arm of the government with no freedoms right?

Have you ever lived anywhere else? Have you ever traveled much to foreign countries?

I have and I tend to ask people about it. I have never met a single person in Canada or Europe that complained about single payer healthcare. The people who have it like it. If we had it you`d like it to. It seems un-american to some I suppose, but so is social security and public education by that standard.
