I thank GOD that the health system in the UK is not run by the insurance industry. I would not want my life hanging on the word of non medically trained Call Centre Operator who works for a HMO.

You act as though that's a bad thing, Please remember that very one working in the UK pays what is known as National Insurance to pay for the healthcare system plus it keeps it out of private hands which tend to bugger it up.

Cannabal would never trash the Canadian health system, but I will. There are more MRI machines in NY to cater to Canadians than in all of Canada. I would never say get rid of the current system, but allowing a 2 tier system would be best for Canada.

You're right, socialized medicine can't hold a syringe to the s'hitty pseudo-capitalist, for-profit, fascist pharmacracy in the US. Of course, I wouldn't give the Canadian medical establishment anymore credit than it deserves.

Though that may be true, I'm sure you could appreciate supply and demand, and as well the fact that not everyone needs an MRI for every little physical problem they have. Plus, not sure if you know, people have to stand in line here in the US, too.
