I don't know about that, everyone else in the world has Single Payer National Health Insurance and they like it just fine.
We are the ONLY developed nation in the world that does NOT have National Health Insurance.
Canada Loves it so much they recently elected the Father of National Health Care in Canada, Tommy Douglas as Canada's Greatest Canadian.

Search; Tommy Douglas Voted the Greatest Canadian

National Health Care Leader Tommy Douglas was overwhelmingly elected the "Greatest Canadian" from a field of War Heroes and Great Canadian Statesmen.

Mitt Romney bragged on Israel's Health Care System for some time on his recent trip there. Romney said he could hardly believe how cost effective it was and that the level of patient care and satifaction was so high. Mitt went on and on praising their system, until he was informed that they had National Health Care.
Then, Mitt Romney got Lockjaw and walked away from the microphones and the cameras.
