What country will Americans go for health care once our system is socialized?
Many Canadians currently get medical treatment in the USA. Where will Canadians and Americans go for health care once our own system is socialized? My guess is Costa Rica. Many already go there for treatments not approved by the FDA.

I would like to see proof that many Canadians come here to get medical treatment. I see a lot of people saying it, but no one has posted any proof of this claim yet.

Really I would like a source on Canadians coming to the US for medical treatment. Also there is no where to go. The only other places that don't have universal health care are third world countries. All developed nations other then the US have it.

Many Americans already go to canada, mexico, and other countries for health care that their HMO refuses to cover. Please cite a source for medicare, medicaid, or Veteran health care customers seeking out health care in other nations. It doesn't happen, as THEY have FAR better health care than you and I do.

I certainly can't afford to go anywhere. Only rich people fly out of the country to get health care.... You would think if they are rich enough to fly to another country and get HC they would also be smart enough to see its cheaper just to stay in America. AND you're a liar

Well, right now many Americans go to Canada for healthcare. In particular, pregnancy and cancer treatment. It's far cheaper and they get in right away. And, it costs nothing for Chemo. I know a few that went to Holland for Pancreatic cancer treatment because they couldn't afford it here... More

Canadians sometimes have elective surgeries performed in the U.S. Not because it's necessarily better. It has more to with the grass appearing greener on the other side.

No one is proposing socializing our health care system. If they were, we wouldn't all be able to keep our private health insurance if we want to.

Actually, that Canadians get medical treatment here is a lie. There is no truth to it. Americans actually go there. Why? Because their system is far better than ours is.

American health care is not going to be socialized and you know it. Care to put forth another lie about the Health Care Initiative that will instill fear, anger, and doubt into the ignorant masses? You're lying, and more and more people can see it every day. Try again.
