The reality of National Health Care in Europe and Canada is that care is rationed. The Vancouver Sun reported that the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority is looking to close nearly 25% of its operating rooms and will cut 6,250 surgeries including 24% of cases scheduled from March to September and 10% of all medically necessary elective procedures this fiscal year.

The article goes on to quote Dr. Anne Doig, the new president of the Canadian Medical Association who says, "It's clear Canadians are getting less than optimal care. We all agree that the system is imploding. We all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize."
That would not be the model I would want for healthcare in the US.
