Not near as many that have died in the US due to not being able to obtain or afford health care.

That's bizarre because I think that is basically the ONE right that every human being on the planet should have.
Everyone i talk to who lives in a country with Universal healthcare loves it. America is doing something very very wrong.

Of course not. As we cut our military, EU will spend their own money for their own defense.

Clinton, and Gingrich cut defense, so it is possible. I found this interesting.

Anyone who knows someone from Canada or England will tell you how horrible getting fast and good healthcare is in those countries.

You would wait weeks to get the same procedures you get in days here.
Au contraire--my Brit friends all make an annual trip home for dental and vision and also if it is something major but not urgent. My spouse is a Brit as well, and hates our health care system compared to his. Your "info" is the real propaganda.
