I've always found it rather humorous that JLC talks about leaving the United States to get away from socialized medicine and where does he think about going to? New Zealand, where they also have some kind of socialized medicine system. It's rather ironic.

It's not Obamacare. All socialized medical care has a few warts, but ours appears to be a toad dressed up as a prince. An 80 year old family member in Canada got immediate breast cancer care while I'm not so confident the same will happen here. Obamacare was crafted behind doors without a hint of what it was in it up to the last moment before it was voted into law. That should be the first clue it isn't going to be very flexible and humane.
