Let’s look to health care in Canada

To the editor,

A Tuesday, Oct. 17, headline reads .... “Panel looks to other states on health care.” Good idea ... let’s consider the following: Canadians are healthier than us in all ways health is measured. Canadians do this at ⅓ the per-capita cost of our health system. Sixty-five percent of the personal bankruptcies in the U.S. are due to health expense and the majority of those have health insurance. Zero personal bankruptcy in Canada are due to health costs. Let’s look to how others solve their health problems ... just don’t stop at our borders.
