A health care question?
Before I get back to the health care debate, a thought experiment. Who among us would chose European or Canadian health care if it meant that the technologies and medicines developed in the United States were unavailable to us? Put aside - for a moment - whether you think this is a "false choice"? Can't we at least agree that these systems would be awful without American technology?
