Greater miracles have happened...
And it's hard to argue with results unless one is ideologically prejudiced (in the
literal sense of the word, to pre-judge). After all, Canadian individuals,
government and companies spends less per capita and less as a percentage of GDP on
medicine than the U.S. does, but we have longer life expectancies, greater quality
of life (as judged by international third-party standards), and greater infant
survival rates. And we have similar demographics to boot. Both systems have their
problems and triage is exercised one way or another; we just do it differently.
