He says Canadians come to the US for their medical. In fact those who have international health

Insurance are told unless it is an emergency they need to go elsewhere for their health care. Another RW talking point which is a lie.

8. For specialty treatment, they do.

It's a different rationing, if you will. Better but it's still rationing and still leaves some people uncovered for certain treatments or with long waits.

10. Along the US-Canadian border, there are quite a few hospitals who try to attract Canadians

What he's NOT telling you is there are also a lot of Americans who get involved in medical tourism.

12. Yup

Ask anybody who's not filthy rich if they want to trade their (Canadian, British, etc...) health care system for ours. They'd vote to keep theirs in a landslide.
