Look at the British Health Care Service. Its a complete disaster. They have the same exact model of Canada and now its here in the United States. Does anyone remember the quote of George Santayana "'Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them."? Its a total shame we have not learned from the mistakes of these two systems.

Evidently, Americans have not learned the lessons of the past. I doubt real history was taught to them in the first place. Besides, as long as they think something is "free" they will support it.

We will never be able to correct a problem without having a clear understanding of the problem. A way to gain that is by gathering accurate information rather than anecdotal info from a small pool (i.e. one person). For example, if you want to know about the US health care system, would you base your thinking on a discussion with one person who ended up bankrupt because of an illness? Of course not because that is not a reasonable reflection of the entire system. Also, just as a point of fact, there are significant differences between the UK system and the Canadian system as to how they are funded and administered. Anyhow, for more info to consider:
