Canada and the Health Care Debate

At a time in the United States where the Canadian health insurance system keeps getting invoked, here in Canada the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) have realized that they have a problem. Incoming CMA president Dr. Anne Doig agrees with that assessment.

"We all agree that the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize," Doing said in an interview. "We know that there must be change," she said. "We're all running flat out, we're all just trying to stay ahead of the immediate day-to-day demands."

"(Canadians) have to understand that the system that we have right now - if it keeps on going without change - is not sustainable," said Doig.

Remember that Canada's system has only to deal with 33.6 million people, while the United States current population is just over 300 million people. If Canada who has a population the tenth of the United States and is unable to keep their system running - what does that say for the U.S. if it changes to a Canadian style health care program?
