or hypocrisy?
If American health care is so broken why did Bill Clinton go to a US hospital rather than, say, Canadian?

Clinton is not covered by the Canadian plan

And he has lots of money/good coverage.

If your doctor was in Toronto, where you happened to be because that's where both he and you live, and work, and you had a history of heart problems, and you were experiencing chest discomfort, would you fly to New York to go to the hospital? I don't think so, unless you're more of an idiot than you already appear to be.:rolleyes:

The care you receive is good in the US. It's the price that isn't. The insurance structure is a big part of the price issue.

Who says it's broken? Our health care is fine. Access to this healthcare though is not so hot. But, really, you know this already and you were hopping others couldn't make this simple distinction, right?
