US Healthcare

Public healthcare is non-existent in the US. They have to pay for doctor appointments or get health insurance to pay their fees. We're lucky in Canada to have such a good system. It's far from perfect, but imagine having to pay to stay alive. In Canada, we don't have to pay for this basic necessity. However, in the US many people are skeptical  about President Obama's reform to healthcare. Luckily, his bill has succeeded in going past the hurdle in the Senate.
Democrats united Saturday night to narrowly push historic health-care legislation past a key U.S. Senate hurdle over the opposition of Republicans eager to inflict a punishing defeat on President Barack Obama.
The 60-39 vote cleared the way for a bruising, full-scale debate beginning after the American Thanksgiving weekend. The legislation, which is designed to extend coverage to roughly 31 million who lack it, would crack down on insurance company practices that deny or dilute benefits and curtail the growth of spending on medical care nationally.
