Not only that, but most free clinics only see a certain amount of people a day,

and no, WE will be paying it. Also, other countries spend LESS on healthcare than we do already.
So the myth than universal healthcare is more expensive is a complete joke.
oh, and why do you keep missing the part that LESS people are dying from things in other countries than they are here.
So the wait for the MRI isn't going to kill you, its ok. They have better mortality rates, look at the NUMBERS.
They spend less because they cut corners. lol.
And don't quote me numbers on mortality rates. The rates given are what is reported. Denmark just completed a study. They decided years ago that women didn't really need yearly mammograms and all this preventattive stuff for women's breast cancer. The study showed that 39% of women who died had breast cancer. The cause of death was listed as other causes. So, they proposed that their study showed that all those preventive measures WERE unneccessary that these women died anyway.
What you have to truly consider is who got to decide the cause of death and did they have anything influencing their decision.
