I bet most of the Canadians

I bet most of the Canadians commenting on that article about how our single-payer healthcare industry is so cheap don't realize it's more than 40% of the total budget in BC, premiums have been risen many times in the last 20 years, and they're going to rise again soon. That, and good luck finding a GP. (Health care is under provincial jurisdiction in Canada, though richer (read: more populous) provinces are required to subsidize poorer ones)

Sure, the current HMO system you guys have is even worse, but what we have isn't nearly as efficient as medical areas the government doesn't pay for such as dentistry and cosmetic surgery.
