There is a record of the same happening before, it's not stealing the election, thats' how the system works.

As for the same analogy, we go to freikin Thailand for some procedures because it is cheaper and because of our great HMOs...

The Canadian government still pays the bill (at a much higher cost, of course).
That's exactly the point I was making. 27 months booked up. That's the problem with government run healthcare. In the US either you or your insurance pays for it but you get it as soon as you and your doctor want.
