So I was wondering about healthcare in the States vs in Canada. This is in regards to Michael Moore’s film “Bowling for Columbine”. It seems that good healthcare is cheap if not free in Canada. So if a good healthcare system exists, whats the big deal with healthcare and the Obama administration? Why does it seem so hard for them to pass a bill on one? Can any Canadians out there shed some light on this?

*Note: also I know that Michael Moore sometimes doesn’t give viewers the whole picture, but thats why I’m looking for known facts. Thanks!

Most Y/A conservatives use the following terms interchangeably:

Socialized healthcare (the government owns everything; hospitals, doctors, clinics, medical equipment… everything)
Nationalized healthcare (limited government contribution to healthcare; ie – single payer or two tier contributions to premiums)
Universal healthcare (a system under which everybody has access to health insurance)
Obamacare (the US healthcare bill requiring everybody to carry health insurance)

Lumping all these terms together demonstrate a lack of understand of the issues and an unwillingness to critically examine the facts. Regardless of what position you take on this issue, an understand of the terms is the first step in a credible opinion.
