i’m canadian and have NEVER had to worry about health care in my life. dont even think about it to be honest. i know when i’m sick i can walk into any hospital, clinic, doctors office and receive all treatment in a timely fashion. i’ve never waited more than a couple hours in a hospital emergency room. i’ve spent a lot of time in them having a complicated pregnancy and premature child.

the US is spending almost 16% its GDP. per-capita spending is heading towards $ 7000. for many years the US has spent more on health care as a percentage of GDP than any other country. it’s expected to reach 20% by 2016. even though they spend almost 2x as much as France and almost 2.5x as much as Britian, they do considererably worse on basic measures of health care. like life expectancy and infant mortalitly rates (average life expectancy for a canadian is 80 years compared to 78 years of the average american). live longer and burry less babies, sounds horrible huh? being born into a household without insurance increases probalbility of death before age 1 by about 50%! THAT’S EFFED UP PEOPLE!!! heads: you’re safe, tails: your baby is dead. toss a coin. Malaysia with an average income of 1/4 that of the US has acheived the same infant mortalitly rate.

i just wanna know what the big deal is? and why people are so against social health care? makes me think most americans are EXTREMELY selfish to be honest.

okay kyle, but you like seeing other people’s babies die?

    Here in the States, we don’t like the government
    making our personal decisions.
    In memory of Patrick Henry, “Liberty is still more
    important than life.”

    Currently, Obama is more concerned with immortality
    than the voice of people.

    He needn’t worry. Come November, he will be

    There’s Still Time To Act. What Are You Waiting For?

    Don’t believe Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi when you hear them saying they’ve got the votes to pass their monstrosity of a health care reform bill.

    So call them. Call ALL of them on the target list below.

    Call their district offices first, then call their Capitol Hill offices.

    Be polite, but be firm. Ask them to please vote to kill the bill.

    Send them back to the drawing board, to put together health care reform we can ALL support.

    Because there’s NO interest more special than YOURS.
