Winston Churchill once said “You can always count on the Americans to do the right thing after they have tried everything else.” The United States has now reached that point. The private system failed to provide adequate health coverage to millions and resulted in billions of wasted dollars as medical professionals tried to keep up with insurance paperwork. Then Obamacare happened and the US is now in the tricky business of trying to get private industry to provide a universal service and control costs. Contrary to the propaganda the Canadian system works very well. Having tried everything else, it's time for the US to do the right thing and create a single payer system.
