Canadians prefer Canada's health care system.

There is a silly campaign that is trying to denigrate Canada's public health care system (as a way of defending our own ridiculously broken health care system).

Of course, the problem with this, is that in measure after measure... infant mortality, surgical outcomes, life expectancy, number of times the average person sees a doctor-- Canada is equal or better than the United States.

And Canada does it for for more of its citizens for significantly less money.

But the most interesting statistic. Over eighty percent of Canadians prefer their health care system to ours. Seventy percent of Canadians believe their health care system is working well or very well.

The attack on Canada is particularly ridiculous since the Americans pushing health care reform aren't even suggesting that we copy the Canadian system. But if the Republicans are going to make this into a battle between the current US system, and the Canadian system... our current system will not fare so well.

The truth about Canada's health care system


If you’re like most asinine leftists, you’ve probably been a long time advocate of “Universal Healthcare”
without ever having had the opportunity to experience the crappy, decrepit system first-hand…
Well here’s your chance… And you better hold on tight, Buttercup, because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

i'll defend the healthcare in canada to the death, the biggest problem is abusers, the government needs the balls to crack down on folks who clog the system with useless visits to emergency rooms with the sniffles

@djjd62,


People have a much better chance of dieing while defending socialized
medicine than actually getting treatment under socialized medicine.

@H2O MAN,
I couldn't get through more than 5 minutes of your video H2OMan (he was a Michael Moore wannabe).

Can you make a cogent argument.

People in Canada have a longer life expectancy, a lower infant mortality and equal or better surgical outcomes than people in the US. Your quip about people dying doesn't jive with the true figures (since more people are dying in the US).

... and Canadians are happier with their health care system than Americans are with ours.

That's a shame... maybe you could try a little harder.

@ebrown p,
Well, I am sure you are correct.

Just like the vast majority of Americans favor our health care system to any others.

Since you have provided no support for your statement, I feel compelled to state my objective opinion as well.

@ebrown p,
there are problems, tests can take a long time, there's some canadian bitch who's shilling for the conservatives in the us right now, she claims that she would be dead if she'd waited for the health care system in canada to process her (no great loss as i see it, if i was prime minister i'd strip her of her citizenship), but show me a perfect system

@djjd62,
One of the worst group of abusers in border towns in Ontario is U.S. citizens who have fake OHIP cards and get service here, that we end up paying for.

I know, I know. The OHIP card system is not in good order.

Overall, I'm happy with the service I get here. My primary care facility is a clinic that was a mini-hospital back in the 1940's. They've got good g.p's and some excellent excellent specialists in their group. http://www.albanyclinic.ca/about/history.htm

This is a handy site.
