Ours is universal health care.

We pay higher taxes than you and it includes our health care.

Some say they have to wait or its no good,if you go to a hospital emergency room with a cold or flu you are waiting and a long time because your in the wrong spot,the emerg unit is for critical care and people that are dying from trauma and such they get first priority as they should.

Use a clinic for the mundane stuff and all is good.

I can honestly say I have never had a problem with it and always recieved good care and treatment wether it was a broken bone or operation.

The Government taxes us,we go to the doctor for what ails us and the Doctor submits the bill to the Government.

I havent used our healthcare system in over 10 years. Im military so we have our own health care system. However lets just say its a saving grace to alot of people in Canada. Get taxed for it and dont need to worry about paying when an emergency hits. The U.S. should really adopt a system like this

They would have to cut their military spending to the same percentage as Canada or run even larger deficits.

If they ever do the free world would be in jeopardy,either that or every other western democracy would have to pick up the slack and we all know that wouldn't happen.

Try this one on,this was in todays Toronto Sun Newspaper:

http://www.torontosun.com/news/colum.../12859936.html

President Barack Obama’s proposed budget of $3.8 trillion puts every other budget to shame – a deficit of nearly $1.6 trillion, which is roughly 10.5% of the whole U.S. economy.

Last week Congress okayed another $1.9 trillion added to the national debt, now some $14.3 trillion.

The projected deficit is close to four times greater than the $450 billion deficit of 2008, and will stay in the trillion-dollar range for three or four years unless the unforeseen happens — as it often does. Yet the economy is said to be recovering. Hmm!

For comparison’s sake, Canada’s last budget of around $225 billion had deficit of something like $36 billion — peanuts to the U.S.’s $1.6 trillion deficit.

Most of us cannot imagine how large a trillion dollars is.

One way of envisioning it is to imagine how long it would take you to spend a trillion dollars by spending $1,000 a day.

Consider:

By spending $1,000 a day, it would take close to three years to spend a million dollars. To spend a billion dollars at this rate would take 3,000 years. To spend a trillion dollars at $1,000 a day would take three million years.

That gives an idea of just how huge a trillion dollars is.

So how can Americans handle a $1.6-trillion deficit that adds to the national debt? And how can it afford to keep boosting defence spending (now approaching $1 trillion) and spending roughly another $1 trillion on reforming health care?

America’s unemployment rate of more than 10% exceeds the Obama administration’s prediction of 8.5% (Canada’s unemployment ratio), but when taking into account those who’ve given up looking for work, unemployment in the U.S. is probably over 17%.

Not encouraging. None of this means that the U.S. is on the ropes, but it does mean the administration should adjust and pay attention to Republican proposals.

A reason why Canada has weathered the recession so admirably is because of the discipline and cautious conservatism of Canadian banks, all of which show profits. In the U.S., 140 banks collapsed in 2009, compared to 11 that failed in the previous five years.

Blessed with only five major banks, Canadians find it inconceivable they might ever lose their deposits. Canadian banks simply don’t fail — or haven’t failed in the lifetime of most citizens.

The U.S. administration’s admiration (and envy) of Canada’s health care system is comforting to Canadians who relish anything of theirs being appreciated. But by making health care seemingly “free” (which it isn’t), Canada has opted to forego other aspects of running a country.

As a matter of policy, in order to afford universal health care, Canada has opted out of adequate defence spending. It relies on American defence for protection, knowing that the U.S. has no option but to protect Canada if necessary.

The U.S. (generally) respects Canadian sovereignty (within limits), and mutual friendship is not threatened by periodic bickering. Put simply, the U.S. cannot afford to keep the military it does, and finance Canadian-style health care.

Canada made its choice, the U.S. made its — but the Obama administration seems bent on trying to implement both at once. It can’t. And the free world needs a militarily strong America more than Americans need Canadian-style health care.

It is as simple as that.

I am from Windsor Ontario, here expect long waits to see a doctor, many do not even have a doctor as there is shortage of GP doctors. I had a back injury and it took almost four months of different appoitments, moved from one doctor to another to have a final decision I needed to see a surgeon, which was a long wait for that appoitment. Finally had back surgery one year after the original problem.
On the other hand I had a daughter who played socder in NCAA Division 1 in the US, she tore her ACL and was sent to Canada to have it looked at. We had a friend who owned a clinic, who had a partner, who had a friend....she was operated on at one of the best clinics in Canada less than one month of her injury, they were a sports place and recognized her scolarship was important to her and she needed the operation quickly to get back to her sport.
