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

And you are ready to try a different system? Just for the heck of it, even if the new system doesn't work?

Did it ever occur to you that EVERYONE in Canada is in the national health care plan and PAYS?

And that they have a VAT (like national sales tax of at least 15% - and up to 19% depending where you live on everything)??????

And that the government funds lots of things, except emergency helicopters so you die on the way from the ski slopes to the hospital on your 8 hour road......

"Where is the money going to come from?"

Higher taxes, of course! But don't ask a dem to tell you...they are clueless!....

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

You mean rationed health care, drug prices that won't support the research for new drugs, insufficient hospital beds, lack of diagnostic equipment, and the like? As in 'Canada'?

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

Until you come up with a better way to PAY for something else, shut the heck up.......Medicare is already 60 trillion in the red. HOw much more debt do you think the country can stand?

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

GEt what? Raising taxes by 200 billion a year to pay for it? A few thousand a year for every family.
