I find the "OMGZ i have to get health insurance this is slavery!!!11!!" posts to be insane.
Canada's health care isn't perfect, but I have never had to pay a dime for going to the doctor, hospital, or any operation (and I've had a few). I've never even thought about it. When I was kid, I just always assumed doctor's were free. In addition, I make "normal" (slightly above the national average) money, and I can afford a reasonable house, a normal car, etc. without more debt than just a mortgage. I am not a slave, my quality of life is high, and I have no complaints.
So, what's the problem here? Why is there such an irrational fear to a health system that is obviously working in many other countries? Health care shouldn't be something you worry about because you can't afford it. That's a totally asinine approach to me.
