The US offers services that Canada does not, just as Canada offers services that Africa is not. Because of the element of expanded consumer choice in the US, US health care will ALWAYS be more expensive per capita than Canada's socialized health care.
And I forgot to add, if it was not obvious, that the American system is much better than the Canadian system. I know from experience since I live in the land of liberty, having left the land of Marxism.
