    Why is there no discussion in the U.S. about how Canada implemented its universal health care system, just on the other side of the border? They're pretty happy with their solution adminstered at the provincial level, according to just about every poll there.

    Except for population size, our countries are very similar - diversified, immigrant based, spread-out geographically, democratic. But the difference in how health care is organized and provided for everyone couldn't be more different. Maybe we could learn something by at least looking and comparing - both good and not so good aspects.
