Still More on The Price of "Free" Healthcare

If the Canadian healthcare system is so great, why are critically-ill Canadians coming to America?

Econ 101:

When you fix the price of something below the market price, you get shortages.

This is true of gasoline (remember the odd-and-even days and the gas lines of the 70s?); it is true of meat (remember the odd cuts butchers invented in the 70s to get around Nixonian price controls?), it is true of healthcare.

There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.
