Percentage of GDP Spent on Health Care
USA: 17% (15% of population not covered)
Canada: 10: (100% of population covered)

GDP:
USA: $13.84 Trillion
Canada: $1.3 Trillion - In US Dollars

Amount spent on health care
USA: $2.353 Trillion
Canada: $0.13 Trillion

Population
USA: 304,100,000 (Number actually covered by ins. 258,485,000)
Canada: 33,215,000

Amount spent per person
USA: $9,100
Canada: $3,900

Do you see those numbers up there? Not only does Canada spend less than 1/2 per citizen that we do, they have better patient outcomes as well. And 100% of the population has health care, and no one goes bankrupt.

CANADA SPENDS LESS AND GETS MORE FOR IT!!!

We are pure idiots to keep the system we have now.

Where is the money going to come from?
Answer, it's already there and then some. Period, End of story. No more argument.

Until you can come up with a better argument than money, then shut the heck up.

Until you can come up with a better story than we have better health care, shut the heck up.

Why even argue? You so called fiscally conservative right tighty types are arguing to keep a system that costs twice as much as it needs too.

I. Just. Don't. Get. It.
