This is very simple.
If the plan does not cover everything someone will have to decide what you dont get.
The profits of health care industry in America are not out of line.
So how will giving health care for free lower the costs?
Yah, it is simple, you set a budget that is reasonable, and you leave it like that. Its not fair to the entire population of Canada to fix everybodies ailments. If a guy has some super rare sickness that can only be fixed with a $5,000,000 treatment, meanwhile the guy is 65 years old, has diabetes, AIDS, and is homeless, is it right to deny him this treatment? Ofcourse it is, he is likely to live no more then a year or two anyhow, and it will be a hellish life. Hard decisions HAVE to be made so that our budgets dont spiral out of control. We in Canada are taxed enough thank you.
Says you! please explain to me how your system is good at all? You guys spend more then double per capita on healthcare as a whole then the next country, and 3 to 4 times as much as the average 1st world country. And yet you guys have the WORST life expectancy. Something doesnt add up! You like to trumpet that you have the best healthcare, prove it!
Proof is in the pudding my friend, its no mistake, all 1st world countries that have universal healthcare spend way way less then America does, and the FACT is we have as many or more hospital beds (on average) then does the USA, and we ALL have much higher life expectancy. Why cant you understand that simple FACT?!?!?!
