10 Reasons Why We Need Health Care Reform

To be more like Europe and Canada we need to reform our current health care system to eliminate these 10 benefits. It is shameful that Americans should be in better health then their European counterparts. It is shameful that we do not have to wait as long as the Canadians do to get health care. It is shameful to think that our poor citizens are healthier than Canadians. It is shameful that we have better access to MRI’s and other imaging technologies. Why should we be so privileged while our northern neighbors are not so fortunate? And finally let someone else be responsible for health care innovation why should we be responsible for doing it all?

I say tear this system apart and remake it so that we can be just like Canada and Europe.
