Why is private health insurance on the rise in Canada?

Private healthcare is on the rise in Canada because the Goverment can't keep up. And this is what we want to go to??

Please show me the facts that USA wants the same system like they have in Canada.Because you must understand that every country with universal health care has a completly different system how they are build up.Trust me I know .

  • Just so everyone is aware, they might get "free" health care, but it takes FOREVER to get into a specialist. My dad waited nearly 4 months to get in for an XRAY on his foot!

  • if you were for McCain what would he have proposed and followed through on do you believe? Not at all that Obama will do us nationally and individually better, he's just younger and brings in a younger cabinet and a different range of hope for us than an old timer does. Clinton was not an old timer but we've had more old timers than young bloods that offer a more fresh hope for bettering this mess. Don't know that Obama's reallly better, just appreciate his age. Only history years later tells who's the best if any.
