Every time McCain slanders Canadian health care, my wife and I exchange glances and shake our heads, rejoicing in the fact that we moved here from the US three year's ago. Having experienced both health care systems, I can say that for us at least, it's been far cheaper here and I've gotten far better care. I'm not a huge user of the system, but have had 3 or 4 instances where prescription drugs as well as multiple visits with a doctor were required. In all cases, my experiences in Vancouver have been better than they were in Boston, which is supposed to be one of the best places in the states for health care.
It may be seen as acceptable to slam a medical system if you think that health care is a 'responsibility' (and is that a responsibility to one's self as I fear McCain means it?) or a 'right' which is how Canadians and Obama see health care.

I get quite annoyed when rich Americans dis Canada's health care system. Our poor can get help when they need it, even streetpeople. How a country treats its poorest is a strong reflection on the real, everyday ethics/morality of its population and, especially, its government.
