Subject: RE: BS: Nationalized Healthcare, good? bad?
We were just having a telephone conversation with JtS' mother in Canada. She is still shocked that the richest country in the world still doesn't have the kind of health care system they have in Canada. She thinks the way health care works in the US is barbaric.

She agrees that the new law will make an improvement, but she finds it shocking that insurance companies are allowed to make money at the expense of the consumers, and that even with health care reform, people will still have to pay far more for their health care in the US than people in Canada have to pay (the amount that Canadians pay in taxes for their health care is far less than we do in this country, even with the new health care law).
