    Yeah we don't typically leave foreigners on the street to die---pretty sure there's a fee schedule for visitors at most hospitals or travel insurance is another avenue

    Can I tell my story again about the weekday morning I spent at that s-hole that is Toronto General? I'd rather be at the University of Chicago Hospital on the South Side on a Saturday night in July.

    Single payer results in an allocation of too few resources for Americans' taste. The American system results in an allocation of too many resources.

    FWIW, I think I paid $400 out of pocket and travel insurance picked up the rest.

    Yeah--a hospital in the largest city in the country is not really indicative of what it's mostly like

    Free healthcare means---run to emerg for that hangnail that really stings---so add lots o people

    Equals mucho wait times

    Dude, I think that's a racist comment - if Comic chimes in we'll know.

    It's that place where they wear wooden shoes, am I right?

    The Netherlands doesn't have a socialist economy. It's a social democracy. That's why I asked if you were confused between the two.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
