I saw this movie as well. While I agree that there should be a universial health care system, I don't know how we can afford it when we have already spent over half a trillion dollars on the war in Iraq with no end in sight. It should be noted that Canada can afford it because their military costs are virtually non-existent compared to the US and the average American acts like this:
