Enough said. Apparently, at the moment at least, we don't think such a system is necessarily the solution of choice for the United States.




I'm curious, who is "we"? What's all the hubub about the public option and single payer? You're moving towards it, of that there's no doubt.

If you pay taxes, your health care is not free. You are paying for it.




I think the word "free" is misused here. The proper term should be "included".

What the US does in the future regarding health care will affect us in Canada because comparisons will be drawn to failed policies and policies that have worked (on both sides). Our politicians will surely be in a tizzy no matter what your health system ends up looking like.
