Countries in N. America with National Healthcare

Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Uruguay, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela all have public universal health care provided. There is much controversy over healthcare in the U.S.A. and there is currently a bill pending in the Senate that would enact national healthcare. In Canada, the government has outlawed private health insurance to insure a speedy government monopoly over healthcare. This is the reason that so many Canadians choose to come to the U.S. for medical reasons. Hospitals in Canada which are operating under the socialized healthcare system do not have acces to the technology or the amount of resources hospitals in America have. In my opinion, we should observe countries around us, like Canada and Great Britain, that have National Healthcare and learn from what has happened in these countries. Generally speaking, their government healthcare has not worked, so why should it work here?
