Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said on Wednesday night during a CNN interview that "a lot of people" would love to pay more in taxes if it meant that they got government-run health care. (Video) "But as you know, the taxes in many of those countries are much higher than they are in individual and personal tax are much higher than they are in the United States," CNN's Anderson Cooper said."Yeah, but I suspect that a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive health care as a human right," Sanders responded.

A friend in Montreal needed open heart surgery. She waited 6 months and had to travel to Toronto, 6 hours away, to have the surgery. Her husband had to find accommodations there at his own expense. They were not delighted.

Sure. And when you take that free education, do not go to medical school because they government tells you how much you get paid. In Canada the best cardiac surgeon in the country is paid exactly the same as the worst one and can lose his license to practice if he charges a patient 10 cents on the side. So after waiting 6 months for a triple bypass you take your chances that the surgeon available is the best one and not the worst one. Hint … the best one emigrated to the USA years ago. You get the leftovers. Also, eyecare, dental, and prescription drugs are NOT covered.

At the end of the ten years, if you get there, report back to us on how well it worked for you and them. Freakin' put up or shut up, you old fool (in the voice of Aunt Esther).
