This article helped me to better understand health care reform in the United States. The U.S. elections are a lot more exciting than ours here in Canada, so we tend to take a great interest in what happens south of our border. It was helpful to read this article and see the two candidates’ health plans laid out so clearly.
Here we have universal health care and only pay out of pocket for cosmetic procedures and some eye exams. It's difficult to understand how Americans can be charged thousands of dollars for health care while living with the fear of losing their homes or acquiring huge debt to pay their health care bills.
