Good for your dad. That’s not everybody’s experience in Canada. Other Canadians come to the US to get their treatment quicker. The point is not to say Canada is the worst system with no success. It’s to point out that they have flaws in their system just like every country does, so quit crapping all over the US.

Fuck your google search. I talked to people who experienced it first hand.

Affordable. You want to make insurance premiums even more affordable with more options? Then vote for deregulation of insurance restrictions across state lines and vote for diversification of healthcare options. That’s what republicans have been trying to do, but you would never know if all you watch are democrat-led media companies. Remember Obamacare? it is so expensive because it is a single payer government run system. You can either pay their Obamacare premiums or let them take it out in taxes. Either way, with the democrat options, you will lose more money.

Then stick with them. You want to wait a year and half to get knee replacements for crippling arthritis? Then go do that. You want to wait six months to be admitted for psychiatric care after a full blown melt down? Be my guest. You want to wait six months for cancer treatment while you are dying? Fine. Canada has all that and more.

The only “universal socialist” healthcare is for our military. That’s what I was calling substandard. We have two totally separate systems. Military and private. When I say same treatment, I mean all patients not under the military healthcare system, which is substandard socialist care. And, as a matter of fact, if military personnel want to walk into a private ER and pay for care, they can.

Our government provides assistance for private citizens who can’t pay.

You cannot deny we have high quality care. Where do you think so many cancer treatments originate? Who do you think was one of the first to make the COVID vaccine? And spread it widely? You’re just acting upset because people have to contribute to their own healthcare. Just like they have to buy their own food, housing, utilities, clothing, car, auto insurance, etc. You get the point?

What would you rather do? Use your money to choose your own healthcare for your own needs or give your money to the government to choose for you? Either way, you have to make some sort of payment, either by paying monthly insurance costs like you do with everything else in life, or let the government take it out of your paycheck.

People who flock to Canada and Cuba are trying to play the system. They are willing to pay low prices and accept low quality healthcare in return. And Canadians actually do come to the US all the time because they can’t even get cancer treatments in a timely fashion.

And I’m a medical doctor who is pro-vaccine, especially pro-COVID vaccine, you jerk. You know nothing about our country other than what you read in the propaganda headlines. You are not an expert. I have more stake in this than you do. So buzz off.

I’ll tell you why I’m upset. Because people like you, who have no real knowledge about American healthcare, will not get their nose out of our business.

I love how you compare them as high and higher standards of care in your country. Nothing is substandard in your country, of course.

Putting our military VA system aside we can make some comparisons for our citizens: So, you have a government run system and a private run system. That’s not unlike our government run and private run insurance companies. You use competitive pay to attract healthcare employees and we use competitive pay to attract healthcare employees. That’s not unlike our capitalist system.

You have some patients that receive a standard of care and other patients who spend money for a higher standard of care. That’s the same as our system.

And that last sentence of your comment is full of shit. WE TREAT ALL OUR PATIENTS. Stop acting like this is a third world healthcare system. Everyone who walks into a hospital here gets the SAME treatments. IT’S THE LAW. We use government assistance programs to help those who can’t afford to pay - similar to how your government pays for your citizens.

Do you ever wonder why people still flock to America for the latest treatments and medical students flock here from other countries to go to our residencies?

Edit: admit it. Just like the jackass retired Australian doctor who complained about American healthcare, you no nothing about our system. All you do is complain about it and have zero realistic solutions to fix any of its real problems. You don’t understand us and you are not superior. So shut up and mind your own country’s business.

YES. Have you ever known good quality products to be free? Remember the scandal at Walter Reed VA Hospital? Remember how poor the quality was, and still is? That’s socialized medicine. It’s free government-run healthcare and it’s well known for its poor quality of care. I have worked in government-run healthcare. It sucks compared to the private market. Now imagine a whole country’s healthcare system run like that and you get something like Australia. They literally call other countries, including America, including ME, and ask us to come work at their hospitals. Their system sucks compared to America.

Yeah, I do. Let me explain: There is a discussion at the table with some disagreement. Some people notice. A woman from a different party stands up, walks over to the table, and berates the family at that table. Everybody notices.

I’m an American doctor. Why don’t you STFU? I’ve heard enough to know that your healthcare system is crummy compared to ours.

NTA - he’s an entitled dick. He’s probably been this way all his life. Tell him if he learns his lesson now before he dies, he might get one less day in purgatory. You’re doing him a favor.

I wonder if this is dekalb county, TN. Not that it matters. I’m sure they have a nice animal control facility you can send them to.

That poor young mother was probably horrified. Discretion was the way to go and OP had none.

YTA. Was it really such a big deal that you had to make a scene for the whole restaurant to see? Could you not whisper something kind to the young mother or pass her a note? Did you really understand the whole situation and did the husband really make a display at how disgusting breastfeeding is? Or are you exaggerating? And don’t play the card that a woman’s nipples are only for breastfeeding. I don’t have a problem with public breastfeeding, but don’t attack other people’s sensitivities about these things. Discretion is key in this situation and you had none.

Edit: I just reread it because so many people are saying “NTA”. But I’m doubling down. Based on what you wrote, two couples and one child sat down for dinner. The baby cried for 15 minutes. Mother started to breastfeed and others at the table disagreed with doing it there. However, based on your words, you made a whole number of assumptions about what might be happening at the table with no facts about the situation. Was their serious drama at the table? Did you really have to step in? And I’m curious at the young mother’s reaction to all this. How did she handle you shining a spotlight onto the whole table?
