because a heart transplant where you've gotten enough debt to just go and off yourself is much better right?

That only concerns 25% of Americans. The rest of Americans who own private insurance and make middle class income can afford it. And here in america, if you are not making enough money to support yourself then it's your fault.

A huge chunk of them are illegal immigrants, about 4% of the population. Another 8% are people in poverty who have no insurance. The other 13% are people who can afford insurance, but cannot afford to pay the deductible (it is a heart transplant which is a large insurance claim and will probably have a high deductible). I would say another 25% of the countries population could afford the deductible but they would have to cut back on things to catch up on their debts (like mortgage payments, car payments, etc). The rest could pull it off and live comfortably still.

Heart transplants are not a cheap operation. Also, quite a few people go to the emergency room anyway and since it's illegal for hospitals to provide treatment they get operations anyway. So in america everyone is entitled to treatment, but when those people don't pay the bill is footed by everyone else through higher premiums.

The smartest system I've seen for healthcare is implemented in Massachusetts, where if you have private insurance then you don't go on the government plan. If you do have a government plan then you do not receive any tax returns. Here in Massachusetts basically every citizen has insurance.

America is a capitalist country. If you work hard then you get get more out of life. Poor people don't work hard, illegal immigrants are breaking the law. I tried to be reasonable with you but you are obviously a liberal ******** and no matter how hard I try to explain why certain people cannot afford a ******* HEART TRANSPLANT, AN EXPENSIVE PROCEDURE, you will always respond with "but those poor poor people deserve help." Well you know what? Maybe those poor people shouldn't have taken dope in High School. Maybe they should have paid attention in school. Maybe they shouldn't have had unprotected sex at age 14. The ******* problem with this country is that no one is willing to take responsibility anymore, it's always someone else at fault. I spent my life working hard, doing well in school, overachieving, I don't see why MY taxpaying money should go to people who DON'T WORK, who AREN'T CITIZENS, or who DON'T work as hard as me.

Don't bother replying to me because I'm done listening to your ignorance.

What? if he's waiting for a heart transplant and he dies because it wasn't transplanted in time then the transplant should have been done sooner and it would have saved his life. The six month waiting time is ridiculous if you still get the same results as you would have without getting one at all.

Its also done based on priority. If you're going to die within six months without a new heart you will be higher priority than someone who can go a few years. My grandmas hip was so bad she got hip replacement surgery within two months compared to someone else I know who had to wait eight months.

Same sex marriage is it's own thing.

But healthcare....yeah, no.
I completely severed the tendon in my thumb, and within hours a hand surgeon was called and by 9:00am the next morning I was on my way home from surgery.

I sincerely ******* doubt that in Canada I would've gotten a hand surgeon within 10 hours. If we had social healthcare, we would have to pay much higher taxes for something that my family wouldn't even ******* use, and my thumb would probably be unusable right now.

Also, Americans goto hospitals for the stupidest ****. Your baby coughed? Goto emergency room. Knee hurts? Goto the emergency room. My dad said that one time a lady came in after she got a ******* PAPERCUT. I **** you not, a papercut. Like from a book. Small papercut. Went to the hospital.

Now imagine if everything was "free". And we'd be paying out the ass for it.

What? If you were in danger of doing critical damage to your thumb, then you would have gotten surgery withing a day, two at most in most places. A friend of mine ****** up the tendons in his knee playing football, and he had surgery the next day, and we live in a small town in southeastern Ontario, with a relatively small hospital. The "waiting forever" thing is ********. If you need surgery, you'll get your ******* surgery.

You have to wait longer in canada, and higher taxes are apart of it. Both are already true. 85% of Americans are covered already. I don't want another 15-20% of our income gone to the government.

And the thing is, America already has social healthcare programs. There is no need, Americans are simply ******* retarded.

Culturally we are somewhat similar. However, we have a military that could end human life as we know it. We were the first people on another world. Canada has a little space station that floats around and takes pictures of earth (THANKS TO THE USA). Now when you say "poor" i hope you aren't referring to all of the American companies that you probably take for granted. You may have heard of some of these microsoft, apple, google, AT&T.

no, i meant the enormous group of people in the United States, who live well below the poverty line, in what are little more than mud-huts or squats. the millions of people who can barely afford to eat, let alone pay for medical insurance.   
   
How about those in the lower working class. people who have worked hard, their entire lives, keeping your wonderous economy (the one responsible for the entire, global downturn, thanks, by the way.) afloat. the people who ONLY JUST make enough money to feed their kids, let alone themselves, how are they supposed to afford healthcare?    
   
and all of you complaining that the tiny little impact the cost of obamacare will have, is going to somehow put America in debt. you're retarded. You, as a country, have already managed to amount the single largest debt in human history, you have literally 0 chance of repaying this debt in the forseable future. most countries on earth combined, don't have anything close to america's national debt. a few  million a year will make little impact upon this.   
   
so no, in summary, i didn't mean companies. it was a theoretical statement, implying that if you're poor, you wouldn't be able to afford a heart transplant, and as a result, die. This, is by far, the inferior option, over waiting 6 months to find a heart, which, by the way, even on private healthcare, is a pretty short wait. they can't just "store" hearts. they need someone with a viable organ to die, with a donor card, WITH the organ still intact. keeping a heart healthy, post-mortem is almost impossible.   
   
(also, for future reference, AT&T are almost unknown outside of the US.)

It's kind of like the guy on the corner who takes advantage of every government program out there who sits in his chair all day watching his huge TV and eating drinking his beer being mad at the rich guy down the road who has just about everything he wants because he works for it. The assclown on the corner sits in his chair all day fuming about how the rich guy should do more for his community. Right, maybe if the guy on the corner would get a job and pay for his own **** everyone would be better off.

And this isn't a stab at people getting food stamps. This is a stab at anyone who's stopped looking for a job because it's just too haaaarrrrrrd. You want a job? I know a company that's always hiring because between expansion and people finishing their 6 months and quitting (That's how much you have to work to qualify for 100 weeks of unemployment) they need all the employees they can get their hands on. UPS

If you need a job, move your ass to KY and put in your application to work at UPS Worldport Louisville. You'll have a job in 3-4 months, and you can pay for an apartment off of the money you make there. On top of it all? If you want to go to school they will pay your tuition. AND They'll give you a $500 per semester bonus. I am sick and tired of hearing people who live in the same town as me complain about not being able to find a job. They're either too stupid to let live or they're lying. UPS will even hire you if you've got criminal convictions for christsake!

Alright, I'm off topic and I'm done ranting. Have a pleasant day.

Except America has a much higher population and greater gaps in wealth.

Canadians may have free healthcare, but their doctors generally aren't as well trained as U.S. ones. Also, most people don't really care about the whole gay marriage debate. I personally don't like the idea. I have no issue with a gay couple getting the same legal rights as a straight couple. If you want to give the rest of your life to a person with whom you can not complete the reproductive cycle that keeps our species alive, that's fine. It's none of my business. I just think that marriage is a bond reserved for two people of the opposite gender. You can't just change the meaning of a word because it doesn't suit you.

How could you say that Canadian doctors aren't as well trained as American ones? You think that just because we have free health care, we just let anyone become a doctor without going to University and an assistant first?

Because the US is home to 6/10 of the top 10 Universities in the world, meanwhile Canada has 0/10, some canadian doctors are better trained but the vast majority are not.

And all of your doctors go to those 6/10 universities?

Listen to yourself, that doesn't make any sense. There are thousands of Universities across the world, and just because Canada doesn't have one of the top 10 universities means that the doctors aren't as well trained?

The only thing that determines the rank of universities is
1. the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals
2. the number of Highly Cited Researchers

It doesn't take into account the actual curriculum taught. So any doctor that doesn't have a nobel prize isn't worthy of fixing your broken arm?

Even if a County's quality of doctors was related to the amount of "top universities" in the country, Canada isn't far behind at having #28 in the world.

I support gay marriage more for legal reasons than for "male/female bond" reasons. If you plan on spending the rest of your life with someone, then filing joint taxes, being included in one's benefits, and providing healthcare decisions should be allowed. There are straight couples that get married for no other reason than it's a good financial idea.

My friends parents didnt see a point in marriage until the bought a home together. They got married because they could file a joint income tax return.

The definition of Marriage doesn't state it has to be between a man and a woman. I find it funny that thousands of years ago in the Roman empire when the kings had both male and female lovers, they were more accepting of gays then our society is now.
