Simple - because he wants to LIVE, and according to the head of the Canadian health system, it is on the verge of implosion.

However, there is good news. In Canada you can get an X-Ray, or MRI or other imagery today and start chemo-therapy this afternoon, or have surgery in a day or two. However, you have to be a dog, or a cat, horse or a cow etc., because their vertrinary medical system is free-market and actually DELIVERS, which their people health care of socialized and doesn't.

Care insurance is NOT mandatory in any state whatsoever. It is only required if:

A. You own a motor vehicle

AND

B. You intend to operate it on public roads

Then, and only then, is Insurance required. Tosay that it is Mandatory is erroneous.

The comparison is a schill

Please copy and paste the comment in which I implied that I was the winner. Philllies lost the World Series and McCain lost the election. Does that imply that I was the winner?

Would you like me to relay a message to her for you?. BTW, I am sure you are aware, that the U.S. is the greates country in the world - hands down, not even close.

If you had any idea what my sister's Net Worth is, you wouldn't say she is a loser. It even makes me feel like a pauper. Her web businesses are incredible, and now she is offshore fishing in her 50' Bertram. It is beautifull, but the engines burn a lot of fuel. Sometimes she puts in $2,000 worth of diesel for a weekend's fishing.

Anyway, take care, and never foreget, the U.S. is #1.

If this is true, and let's assume that it is, why would we want more government control of health care when the government can't or won't provide some of the most deserving among us the health care services that they are entitled to? This statement seems like an argument against government controlled health care.

There is an excellent case study of what government-run health care is like. It's called America's Hat, and they just had the Winter Olympics in that country.

Waiting lists for health care procedures are incredible. Recently, two high-ranking members of their government came to the U.S. for health care. Why, of course, because they wanted medical services and not government Bravo Sierra (which is something that might come out of the north-end of a south-bound Bull).

However, there is good news in "the hat". You can get any procedures or regimine you need or want in a day or less, as long as your or your ward are a horse, or a cow, or a mule, or a pig, or a cat or dog etc.

You see, in "the hat", animal-medicine is free market and actually delivers "care", which two-legged medicine is government-run and provides little more than "coverage", no medical "care", just "coverage".

Or if you want to take a trip across the pond and deal with the Brits, et al, hospitals are unable to change bed-lines in anything more often that every 30 days!!!! Breast Cancer diagnosise for women over 45 years of age, comes with a pre-filled-out Death Certificate to be executed by the attending physician. It is UGGG LLLYYY.

Oh, yes, and beloved (by some, not I, however), Fidel, came to the U.S. for treatment, eschewing his Universal Coverage, Non-Existant Cuban medical care system.

As my sister Mahi aways says, Free Markets DELIVER (and she knows, as much as she delivers via her web biz, and those biz deliver to her in the form of $$$$).

Why can't she say that for herself? What lie are you going to give us to explain that?

Mr. Jtur88, you seem to have some pent-up hostility Did Mahi slap you around pretty good. I know she really hate communism, but then, what decent person doesn't!!!! Anyway, I am not so outspoken as she is.

Good news, she just called in on the satphone. She boated a black marlin that taped out at 1200#. Caught it on a Black Bart trolled at 9 knots, but then I am sure Big Game fishing is such a bore to you. To bad the fish exhausted itself so much during the fight it couldn't be revived to be released.

Panama has awesome fishing.

And I would never go through the trouble of telling you a lie, the effort would be too much for who it's for. I'm sure you understand.
