If we paid the same amount for health care as Canada, G.M. would have accumulated an additional $22 billion in profits over the last decade.

Possibly so. The big companies will soon cry out for nationalized health care, if they haven't started already.

But I don't want to spend the same as Canada. I want to pay what we currently pay so we don't have shortages. Don't worry; I'm not afraid that Canada's system sucks. I think a happy medium would be a Canada-STYLE system but where we spend, per capita, what we're currently spending. That could reduce the slope of the curve which shows spending rising each year.
