    Default Health care Summit- what a joke

    What a waste of the American taxpayer dollar, this dog and pony show is an insult to my and your intelligence. I think each one of these politicians came with their own "personal story" of a healthcare dilemma ...they must think there are bonus pts for whoever can bring the biggest tear jerker of a story to the table...please, dont insult our intelligence...

    I wonder how many of these guys are up for re election this year

    Everything sounds so scripted...still looking for where the teleprompter is hidden

    This is the most my intelligence has ever been abused. What a joke. The only way to get anything done is in November send all these clowns to the unemployment line.

    I know this means nothing to you guys, but I really love kicking back in my socialist country with my free healthcare. I don't think I'd have it any other way. A lot of things up here are a little messed up (**** off on trying to sell our power utilities to the french), but one thing we never have to worry about is going broke because a family member gets sick.

    But don't get me wrong I don't know enough about your system to judge whether you need a change or not. I've heard a lot from your politicians (ugh...) spreading crap about how broken our system is. That's exactly what it is...crap.

    I only saw a few clips of the big show, but let's face it. It doesn't take long to sniff a terd. All, and I mean ALL of the incumbents need to be tossed out on their butts. In fact, it should be illegal for a politician to hold public office!

    Well how come your politicians come down here to get their heart surgeries? If it's so good, why didn't he have it done in good old Canada? You might not go broke, but you may be dead before your number gets called by the surgeon.

    From my personal experience visiting a B.C ER during a snowboarding trip, Canadian medical care is just fine for minor injuries, but lacking when it comes to life threaten or surgeries in comparison to the US.
    That's based on the conversation I had with the ER doc while I got my stitches after a late nite stunt gone wrong. The doc straight up said, if I had needed surgery that it would have been in my best interest to fly back to the US because they (Canada) don't have the latest and greatest medical equipment or techniques due to funding restrictions.
    And since I was a US citizen, boy they didn't hold back on charging me up the wazoo and making me pay it on the spot.
