Satisfaction isn't a proper barometer when comparing systems because, if all you know is one system, you'll be satisfied with insufficient care because you've been told that's all there is. Maybe they feed you Michael Moore propaganda to make you think your socialist health care is peachy keen.
Imagine a lottery in U.S. where once a week you get to find out whether you are ***allowed*** to see the doctor!! And wait until these fascists decide that you are too obese or too old or smoke too much, etc, to be given treatment.
There is one elemental truth at play here. You can't have universal coverage unless you reduce costs and the only way to reduce costs is to deny care. Period. You can show me all the charts and graphs you want, but it won't matter. The Democrats are lying through their teeth about what they plan to do with this because they know you won't like it when it is actually put in place but, once they seize control of 1/6th of our economy, you won't have any other choice but to go along with it.
And you'll be satisfied with it. Or else.
Oh, and Cuba, France, Britain and Canada are all the same. Are you really that completely out of it? Read my thread on French health care. It's a wake up call.
