According to a new survey, 70% percent of Canadians thought it would be fairly easy to get treatment if a relative became ill, compared to just 51% percent of Americans. The survey was conducted online by Ipsos/Reuters.
It was conducted while Congress fought over sweeping changes to expand access to health insurance between November 2009 and January 2010. President Obama signed the new health reform law last month.
The United States spends more than any other nation on health care — roughly 16% percent of its economy — but still has higher rates of infant mortality, diabetes and other illnesses than other rich countries.
Why would the richest nation in the world have to be dragged kicking and screaming into giving their citizens affordable health care? Two reasons I’ve found. Because of a general distrust of government and simple selfishness.
This, coming from so-called, “Christians”.
