The USA may give more actual $$ in foreign aid. This is because they have a larger population. They actually only give 0.1% of their gross national income whereas Canada gives 0.33% of theirs.

If I may say, I can't help feeling that those opposed to a health care system like that of Canada or Great Britain are those who are already taken care of and, as with any "socialist" notion, they don't wish to help pay for others. I could be wrong.

I think it's a feeling that we all would jump to but have to try to overcome because taking care of everyone is the right thing to do. That's what it's all about.

Please don't think I have bad feelings for the USA. You are a beautiful nation. I would dearly love to live there - if it wern't for a few things. One of which is the healthcare.
