This, from Yglesias, showcases a fundamental difference between American conservatives and their Canadian counterparts:
“[A]ll leading right-of-center politicians in Canada understand that their health care system is far too popular and well-loved to seriously propose replacing it with an American-style system in which whether or not you receive treatment for an illness is determined by the whims of a for-profit insurance company. Indeed, the Conservative Party of Canada lists as one of its founding principles the idea “that all Canadians should have reasonable access to quality health care regardless of their ability to pay.”
Amen. Did I mention how pretty the women are?
