"The US health care system is like GM. It is broken, it can't be fixed, and all the ideological dogma in the world is not going to save the US health care system from implosion. Canada does not have socialized medicine it has nationalized health insurance. Health care costs here are half what they are in the US and we are healthier -and we don't ride bicycles to work. Canada produces 30% of the cars made in North America because labour costs (health insurance) is cheaper. "
