If ObamaCare is fully implemented, the people of Canada are going to find out VERY quickly just HOW broken their health-care system is.

Because the more well-to-do Canadians who have been able to get around the inadequacies of their OWN health-care system by coming to the United States for treatment will no longer have that escape hatch and will actually have to deal with the rationing and denials of treatment that have been a fact of life for their LESS well-to-do countrymen.

And when they get THAT epiphany, THEN you will hear SCREAMING in Canada about THEIR health-care system.

There won't be one moment marking the end of America. Everything will just gradually get worse, like trains and the tax code, until a bustling, prosperous nation is...
