Re: Ho hum
You made sense until you added healthcare as a service the government is best at. The government may be able to supply it to more people - but that doesn't make it the best. If that were true there wouldn't be as many Canadians traveling to the USA and paying a private entity to have a procedure done because they either couldn't get it from the Canadian system or the waiting time was so long they'd be dead before they received it.
Not saying the government can't do healthcare - but I don't believe it has proven to be the best at it. They might be able to provide a minimal level of health care to the most people, but that is about it. If they can afford it there are a lot of people who will pay for their own care in order to obtain a better level of that care.
