Canadian health care system is superior

February 09, 2010

I just returned to the U.S. from a pastorate in British Columbia, Canada, where for the past 10 years health care cost me $56 a month.

I am very healthy. I only used the Canadian system once. Now I face huge expenses every month because I am over 61.

Having experienced both systems, I am definitely in favor of a nationalized health care program now! Yes, it will have glitches as the public and the government get used to it, but I believe soon we will all be saying, "What took us so long?"

As an American citizen, I call on Congress to complete this very necessary job!
