Health care reform is an obvious one that should be changed. Obamacare, though it has it's flaws starting out, is a great move in the right direction to get the states health care more aligned with Canada's. Having it private is astronomically more costly for the rich and poor alike and has tons of corruption with insurance not being regulated well with it, or opting out of loopholes when someone paid for it and needs it.Very cool idea about having a foreign jobs tax on companies that opt to send jobs overseas. If nothing else that tax can be used to do a lot of wonderful things for communities and everyone in them, or could be used to start paying down the national deficit for the sake of everyone's kids, and grandkids.
The Canadian health care tax on everyone allows poor people, middle class, and the rich to ALL benefit because everyone just chips in a tiny amount, so it doesn't bankrupt any one single individual. And we're all just as likely to be hit by a car or get cancer as the next person. With the Rich in the US being able to afford the insurance, they would also benefit because the healthcare tax on the rich in Canada is far lower than healthcare insurance premiums are for the Rich in the States. Apart from the tax, everything healthcare wise is free to us if/whenever we need it. We do pay a large fee of $80 ($55usd) if we need the services of the ambulance though to prevent people from just using it as a taxi service and faking injuries. It works pretty well.
The Canadian system looks amazing and I want something like that for America or at least pull some good ideas i think if there were a way to have government tax funded healthcare but also still keep some private health insurance options then i would be 100% sold. Im just kinda spooked about it all i guess. Reforming healthcare is a big deal and it would be easy to make a mistake.

Yea I find the media is constantly telling its people to just keep continually spending on of their income immediately on dumb crap a lot of the time. It's kind of mind boggling to Canadian's and Europeans how much "stuff" American's go out and buy trying to go out and fill all of the empty rooms that serve to purpose or value to them.
Yes, overspending here is big. So everyone is in debt, including the country itself. America owes trillions of dollars to other countries. It's a very common thing here for people to spend money that they don't have and "Buy now, pay later" is a lot of people's mindset.
Better health care really would be a good improvement to the USA.
At least for myself not for everyone.
