I don't agree, but I do notice you couldn't refute any of the facts.
What facts? I presented you facts, you have not. What cultural difference can you point to that affects over 65 year olds between Canada and the USA that would let Canadians live longer?

So, unless you are a multi-millionaire, which I suspect you are not, you are just going to wither and die when you run out of money. Right?

Employer based health care is a chain around the neck of employees, and thats a big reason why wages are stagnant and why corporate America dont want to loose that power over the employees.
It also stops people from retiring earlier.

Nope, I wonít run out of money. I have assets I can liquidate plus I have taken steps to take care of me. I had foresight. Enough so that everyone should do the same. Fact is most donít and they expect others to pay for their own stuff.

Not me. I refuse to pay for your lung transplant caused by cigarette or dope smoking.

He definitely claims he can afford his own healthcare and he also believes he will never get sick enough to need it.

He has his so he doesn't care about everybody else.
