Here are my indicators:

when rich people get sick, they come to the USA to get treatment.
They don't go to Japan or Sweden.

when you want a CAT scan, you get one right away.  You don't have to
wait for 4 months or more to check on that possible aneurysm or
cancer, like you do in Canada.

when your soldiers come back from a war in Iraq, they don't have to
join a waiting list to receive treatment for their injuries like they
do in the UK.

I grew up in Canada and MUCH prefer pretty much everything about the
USA, including the *FREEDOM* to choose my own health care plan.
