If, while you are mayor of one of the biggest cities in the free world, you do crack, WHILE in an ADMITTED DRUNKEN STUPOR, and then LIE LIKE A RUG about it for almost a year...ALL THE WHILE accusing the awesome reporters who figured it all out (way to go, guys!)

Why Canadian health care is better | Health | Get Healthy | Best Health

It's not "free"--we all pay for it with our taxes. But if I'm sick, I don't need to worry that I'll bankrupt my family. And no, I don't have to wait years for emergency procedures.

Rona Maynard has lived on both sides of the border. "Our healthcare system isn't perfect, but from where I sit, it sure looks a whole lot better."

Canada Party

Their campaign slogan is "America, but Better." And they refer to themselves as "your continental BFF." Need I say more?
