What if John Stossel gave a misleading report on Canadian health care and nobody cared?

That appears to be the case. Other than a few notices at some conservative blogs, there's not much reaction.

A typical review:
During the six-minute, 20-second segment, Stossel informed viewers of the long waits patients must endure in countries with government-run health systems – like Canada and Britain. He recounted that some patients – including world leaders and wealthy celebrities – come to America for treatment of serious conditions ...
That's like saying that in the 1960's, because the rich and powerful were buying Rolls Royce sedans, England's automobile industry was doing just fine.


Hmm ... How many Americans go to Canada and Britain for medical treatment?

How do you know they don't? I read all the time about Americans going to other countries for experimental treatments not available in America.

Isn't this offset, even a little, by all the Amurricans who go to Canada to get their prescriptions filled? I do it online myself for a medication that is about half the cost of what it would be if I bought it from a local pharmacy.
