X2....ask any canuk about they're "government provided health care" and they'll tell you it sucks....


Do I agree that the cost of healthcare should be addressed? Yes. But as stated above, I don't think healthcare is the only thing that needs to be addressed - the way we live taxes us and makes us unhealthier than other nations. This country is very unhealthy and is addicted to medications for everything (which often times the person doesn't need). It's out of hand, and for that the government needs to get involved....

The reason no company will insure you is becasue they will likely lose money on you down the road. Its a business. You don't make money on losing bets.

If the govt takes over, MY taxes will pay for your bad genes. As harsh as that sounds, its the truth. I don't want to have to pay for other people's healthcare. I want to work hard, save my money and take care of myself and my family if we get sick.
