What courtry will we have to travel to for health care if UHC passes?

There has always been people coming to the USA for health care because we're the best. If UHC passes, where will the people that can still afford it go to get their health care?
I'm guessing China, becasue they don't have UHC and their gov. won't turn down a way to make more money. I would prefer if it was Canada or Mexico so that we wouldn't have to leave the continent.
What do you think?

  • Why does UHC = bad medical care to so many people? No it's not perfect, but if Drs trained in the US are the best why do we in Canada make them complete extra training to practice here? There are excellent hospitals all over the world and excellent care all over the world, even in countries that have UHC. And there are terrible hospitals and terible care all over the world, including in the US. I really don't get why so many people are so scared of UHC.

  • That's a joke, right?!? The U.S. does not have the best healthcare! Did you ever do some research on it??? And if you did some research please share... I really wanna know how you come to the conclusion the U.S. has the best healthcare system in the world!

  • Anyone who works in a hospital can tell you Medicare patients get excellent care and so will you under UHC. One problem is Obama is NOT going after UHC. So stop the nonsense. Whether you have private insurance or UHC Americans only want the best.

  • If health care was so great in Canada, why Canadian's always coming across the border to get medical treatment?
    The reason why it's bad, is because the gov. is going to make your health decisions. Which could be translated into," Chemo is to expensive, and the odd's aren't in your favor, so do the right thing and die."

  • Well, seniors and others already travel for affordable medications, they have busses up to CA here in MN. Lots of people travel to Mexico for affordable surgeries. They travel to places in Europe for cutting edge treatments nor available or affordable in the US. I guess you can take your pick.

  • He most assurdly IS going for UHC grand.This is the start.By the way we already HAVE govy ran care as you mentioned medicare which hmm is going broke just as social security is another govy deal.We are broke.Why not fix the problems within those govy programs we already have? Oh yeah we have chip too and others.Instead of forming more of this crap? Why rush? Why not make them READ the bills? Why not do this right? I mean it would not take effect until they say about 2013 anyway whats the hurry? We could have reform without a govy takeover and we could do it right.Really doesn't make much sense to me.
