Though I have had my share of lengthy hospital waits.... This guys information is definetly skewed.
The fact is, that everyone needs healthcare whether you are rich or poor. Canada's system may not be the most efficient, but it works.
In september I had appendicitis, had to wait in the ER for a long time, but eventually got my surgery. Never saw a bill. How much would minimally invasive appendix surgery go for in the US?
I'd gladly wait 24 hours if its going to save me tens of thousands of dollars... If you are in rough shape, you don't wait at all.
