Of course, on one hand regardless of what kind of system we have politicians have bucket loads of money as is so no matter whatever health problems they or their family gets they never have to worry about getting top notch care or any bills associated with it. I really don't believe they do. If they really did it stands to reason we would have had good health care long ago, and just like in Canada and Europe no one would ever have to worry about getting good health care and going bankrupt from it.

They care about their electability and their healthcare. Why don't we have the same system they have ?
I don't hear them complaining about theirs.

There's no way they care about the public health insurance. These politicians have cadillac plans. We would never see insurance that good. I wish we could put them out of office as they surly don't do their jobs. They blame the Democrats when an idiot could see these people had 7 years to draw up a viable plan. What did they actually do? Obstruct Obama. Now that they're in office they just want to check healthcare off their list. This is a joke folks. The whining republicans need too figure this out before everyone loses patience.

But that begs the question, why are American politicians so particularly evil/stupid? Seems like Canadian and European politicians actually give a damn about their people.

What is with the need for politicians to care about us personally? They are not our surrogate parents or religious leaders, to be emotional over politics seems juvenile. All that matters is competency.

No, both sides are using health care as a political football game. I've said for years that we need to take a good hard look at every system in the world for how well they're working and then adopt and refine.

Health care is a product like any other service. You seem to think it's a right. America has no interest in the socialist-inspired schemes like the places you mention. Bernie lost!
Obama care repeal is coming. Get a job, and buy your own health insurance just like before.
Happy Fourth!

Answer: Because most Americans are evil/stupid. What else could explain how Bush was elected to a second term after lying 4,500 American soldiers to their deaths in a search for wmds.

Compare American capitalism to capitalism elsewhere in the West.
