I learned something cool about Canadian healthcare

from John Stossel on ABC's 20/20 last night. Some patients actually have access to advanced technologies and treatments just like Americans enjoy, and the waiting times are practically non-existent, very similar to the quick turnarounds in the U.S.

Unfortunately for its citizens, it is a privatized system for Canada's pets. The six-minute video can be found here.

Stossel, as usual, does a great job demonstrating how as bad as things are in our health care system, its much better than Canada or Europe, and how much industrialized countries rely on our medical innovation and how their wealthy come to the U.S. because it is far superior to the single-payer systems in their home countries.

BCWUW4: Be careful what you wish for.
