Okay, true story...
(For those of you who don't know, I'm an American living in Quebec)
So anyway I was standing in line at the grocery store, with some stuff I needed for Passover. Their debit system crashed, so there was a big hold up and we were all waiting in two very long lines. Two guys behind me started talking about the Canadian healthcare.
"Why don't they open up more registers?"
"It's by law, they can only have so many people working the registers at night"
"Guess it's like hospitals, you go into the emergency room and wait 15 hours for care. I'm sure the government controls how many nurses can be on duty"
"Yeah... gotta love free healthcare"
They went on to say how Americans are stupid to think that the Canadian healthcare system was any good, or even that it was free. At one point one of the guys asked the other given all that they pay in taxes, whether it was worth they money. The verdict was no... it wasn't. One actually claimed it was the worst healthcare system, in terms of cost-to-benefit. They seriously spent about 15 minutes bashing the Canadian healthcare system, and bashing Americans who wanted to emulate it.
"If our healthcare is so good, then how come rich Canadians go down to the US for treatment, eh?"
By the time I left, the topic had moved on to how the Canadian government wants to go cashless. At this point, the grocery store couldn't get their system up and was only taking cash as payment.
