    What are we fighting? The Canadians seem okay with their set up.

    Um....yeah. See, I don't mind paying through taxes, because I know damn well when it's my turn to rack up a $50,000 hospital tab I won't need the additional heart attack from the stress of wondering how I'm going to pay for it once they let me out, no matter how poor or marginalized I might be, or what level of coverage I can or can't afford.

    Myth #4: Government-run health care programs are bureaucratic and inefficient. Introducing private health insurance and competition would make the system more efficient.
    Reality: The evidence from all OECD countries shows that the private sector is far more bureaucratic and much less efficient than the public sector when it comes to providing health care.
    The United States, which has the most privatized health care system of any OECD country, spends 14% of its GNP on health care, compared to 9% for Canada.
    The U.S. pays $911 per person per year in administrative costs. Canada by contrast pays $270 per person.
    The disproportion in insurance overhead costs is even more marked: insurance overhead per capita comes to $212 in the U.S., $34 in Canada. Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts, a typical major insurer, employs 6680 people to administer insurance for 2 1/2 million customers, more than are employed to administer public health insurance for all 28 million Canadians.
    When Germany recently shifted dental services from the public system to private insurance, administrative costs tripled from 5% to 15%.
