Your canadian healthcare costs that much also (your doctors, nurses, hosptitals get paid, right?). It just you guys pay much more in taxes than we do. What is your national sales tax? We dont have a national sales tax. What is your employement tax? We have different rates, but the 51% who pay taxes have rates from 15-35%. How much tax do you pay for the priviledge of that universal health care?
How long does it take Canadians to have elective surgeries done? Gall bladder surgeries are considered elective, but if you have a bad gall bladder, you can be very sick. A Canadian friend of mine took years to get her gall bladder surgery approved and removed (mine-a couple of days). Canadians can have universal health care due to higher percentage of your people work and pay into the system and Canada doesnt have 335,000,000+ people with 100,000,000+ freeloaders.
