Yup, like I said the only real differences are the lack of 100% coverage in the states and the shitty access to care in Canada. Being on a waiting list for months to see a specialist is retarded.
I think one of the main reasons for the higher tax rates in Canada has more to do with a limited population and a lot less industrial tax base. More of an assumption as I haven't really studied the issue.
Really if someone would streamline healthcare in the US and not allow hospitals to charge $10 for a pain pill and $400 for a brace I can get at Walmart for $20 we would see 100% again.
